Tour Report: Sanatorium J. [Revisit]

The old sanatorium had been our "home location" for years, and it also became the final location on my birthday tour in 2018.

My parents had decided to join us for the birthday party on the mountain, in the camp next to the abandoned sanatorium. We were so happy that they finally came to visit and see for themselves what over the years, my wife and I had come to love about Jens (our good friend who lived there), this place and the people here.

And of course, Jens gave my parents the tour of the sanatorium, showed old photographs of the rooms and told stories about things that he had researched over the years. Being a pharmacist, my father was especially fond of a bottle of "Carbol" (i.e. Phenol, an obsolete disinfectant) that Jens had found somewhere on the premises.

While Jens was showing the place to my parents, I took the opportunity to get a few shots with my camera. It was late afternoon, and the light was really beautiful. This time, I also took a couple of photos of the walls, because I really liked the colors and textures of the decay.

Jens took his time to show my parents around, and when we were finished walking through, we went down to the campfire, and we began a really great evening with barbecue, beer and good friends! It was the perfect birthday.
