Tour Report: Farmhouse "Autumn Leaves"

To finish off our day of exploring in Denmark in January of 2019, we had planned to check out an abandoned farmhouse. I had only been given a rough location where to find it. We drove around for a while until we spotted the house in a small forest far behind the tree line. We parked the car in a side road after the next intersection and walked back.

There was no recognizable driveway or path to the house, so we jumped over the roadside ditch and walked through the trees and made our way through the undergrowth until we got to the house. It was a small classical four-sided courtyard with living quarters, barns and workshops around it. We walked through the small gate and looked around. The barns had already partly collapsed, and some had been used as a dump for thrash by people from the neighborhood. As we entered the house, we were a bit disappointed at first, because there wasn't really much left, but we did find some really nice old furniture in various stages of decay. Except for the trash in the barns, there was no vandalism or graffiti, only decay, so in spite of the rather small amount of photo scenes, we enjoyed exploring this place.

Because it was a small place, it was only a short explore, but with this neat little place, we now had three new locations on our checklist, so it had been a pretty successful day, and we were very content driving home. It was also our last trip to Denmark for the next seven months, and guess where we went when we returned in the summer...

Tour Report: Dairy Company "Stingray"

The abandoned buildings of this former dairy company in Denmark are part of a larger dairy factory that was sold and split up sometime in the past. One part was after that operated by a fish export company, and this other part has apparently been used for various purposes, including storage and auto repairs.
We had started our day of exploring in Denmark with a visit in the part of the factory that had been converted into a fish factory, and since we hadn't seen enough yet, we decided to also try to get a few photos from the rest of the buildings.
It only took us a few minutes to find a way in.
At first, we were a bit disappointed, because the buildings didn't continue the architectural style that we had seen in the fish factory. But the further we went, the more stuff we found.
The place had obviously been used as storage; there were so many things to be seen. Furniture, sewing machines, things that looked like they were used on a movie set, record players...
There also was some nice decay to be found due to a collapsed roof in one of the halls.
The surprise of the day came towards the end of the exploration, when we found what seemed to be a former car workshop. There were a few quite pricey engines lying around - for example a BMW 12-cylinder engine and the engine of a vintage Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

When we were back at the car and had just packed our stuff, a man walked by and told us not to enter the abandoned places, because the neighbors wouldn't hesitate to call the police...guess we got lucky :)
