You might say I'm a collector. I collect rare objects. Facts, stories...I travel the roads of Germany seeking its heart.

Exploring the abandoned city of Pripyat, Ukraine, site of the 1986 nuclear desaster of Chernobyl

"It was a dream that we all had through our "urbex life" until now. The four of us really went to Chernobyl. The four of us, that were Freddy from Nordgriller Urbex, Torsten from North Urbex and my wife and I. Freddy had taken care of the organization, and there we were - right at the city sign of the famous abandoned city of Pripyat. It was an awe-inspiring experience walking the streets of this city that has been turned into a nuclear wasteland by the largest catastrophe of the 20th century next to the two World Wars."

The Princess and the Cat - a Vanden Plas Princess 4 Litre R and a Jaguar Mark VII in Denmark

On the Danish island of Fyn, hidden behind an inaccessible abandoned house, lies a barn with a treasure inside it. Two old British cars, both in pretty bad condition - but still showing off some of their former beauty - have been rusting away for a very long time.

 

The first car to be seen is a Vanden Plas Princess 4 Litre R built sometime between 1964 and 1968. The second is a Jaguar Mk VII which was produced between 1950 and 1956....(more)

Abandoned Chemical Factory in Berlin

For my wife and me, it was our fourth exploration of this abandoned chemical factory. I had a business meeting and was in town for two days before a weekend at the end of February of 2017. We had gotten the idea to use the weelend for a couple of days of traveling together with our friend Freddy from Nordgriller UrbexI had booked a hotel for the three of us, and on Friday, Freddy picked up my wife at home and we met in the hotel a couple of hours later.

We got up early the next morning to avoid too many people around the locations that we had planned.

Ever since my wife and I had discovered the abandoned factory in 2013, we had known that there was a security service patrolling the place from time to time, and there has been an increasing amount of .....(more)

Oudemanhuispoort in Amsterdam, Netherlands (Thu, 21 Jun 2018)
Now part of University of Amsterdam’s law faculty, this ancient passage filled with stalls selling used books is filled with many ghosts, from cholera patients to Vincent Van Gogh. If you enter Oudemanhuispoort through the Oudezijds Achterburgwal side, you will get one allusion to this passage’s past. Overhead, chiseled into a pediment, is a set of spectacles referring to old age. Indeed, “Old Man’s House Passage” once acted as part of the Netherlands' first senior citizen home back in the 18th century. Now part of the University of Amsterdam, it actually has a 400-year-old history that has seen it be home to a convent, a hospital for cholera victims, an arts academy, and a museum that formed the basis for the Rijksmuseum and its famous collection of Rembrandts and Vermeers. Since 1886, the stalls of this covered walkway have been selling second hand prints, sheet music, and books. The stalls are currently run by an older generation of fellows—many with spectacles—who are only too willing to share their knowledge. Perhaps some even have secondhand stories about Vincent van Gogh browsing here for inspiration. For example, it’s been said that it was here that everyone’s favorite earless genius found the Japanese prints that he found so inspiring, changing the course of Western art. Imagine what you might find…
