Tour Report: School Hostel "King of Green"

Together with my good friends Pixelcracker and Lost Places in Schleswig-Holstein und Umland, I went on a short tour at the end of June 2019. It was a spontaneous tour, so we decided to check out two potential locations not too far away.

The first spot we drove to was an abandoned school hostel in a very touristy spa town. Unfortunately, there was no way in - and I haven't seen any photos of the place yet...so I guess it's time to check again.

This wasn't the only abandoned school hostel on our map, however. There was another one only about thirty minutes away, so this was potentially a good alternative. Beautifully located with a forest on one side and only a few meters to the beach on the other side, this must have been a great place for children to spend their time.

As we arrived, we were more than pleased to find public parking right in front of the place. A few cars were already parked there - probably tourists that were taking a walk on the beach. After all, it was a beautiful sunny day.

We parked that car, gathered our gear and started walking around the building looking for a way in. We found an open window right away, climbed in and found ourselves in the kitchen. At that point, we could already see that this place wasn't going to be a spectacular location. There was trash everywhere and lots of relics from teenagers partying in the abandoned building.

From the kitchen, we went along a narrow hallway that led us into the gym. The gym was in fact the best part of the building, because there was some really beautiful decay, and nature had found her way in. We spent quite a bit of time photographing all the details in the gym, before checking out the rest of the place. As expected, the remaining rooms weren't really decaying, but in part severely vandalized. The tables had been stolen from the restaurant, bookshelves had been tipped over, the books were lying on the floor, and these annoying graffiti tags had been sprayed on almost every wall.

So we took all the "good" photos that we could get (which didn't take too long), and we went back to the car to drive to the next and final location of the day.
