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."

Ruins of an abandoned hospital in Eastern Germany

GALLERY UPDATE: New photos added taken on July 8, 2017

 

Demolition of this abandoned hospital has already been approved (Nov. 2017). Due to vandalism and natural decay, there is not much left of the olf hopital's subsance. 

The older part of the hospital used to be the residence of the village bailiff, so it dates back almost to medieval times and is in a bad state. The newer part of the hospital has been built in the late 1940s, but already shows massive signs of disintegration.

The cost of demolition and disposal is estimated at around one Million Euros, so it is still unsure if and when the demolition will happen....(more)

Tour Report: The Collector's Farm [DK]

Published 2018-05-26

The Collector's Farm [DK]

It's amazing how much Denmark has to offer. Thousands of kilometers of coastline, beautiful villages, friendly people, hot dogs - and abandoned stuff. Lots. We discovered this abandoned farm with greenhouses based on aerial pictures from Google Earth. It was the second spot of a short tour through Denmark together with my wife and my friend Freddy from Nordgriller Urbex in February of last year.

 

Driving past the first time, we noticed that there were Neighborhood Watch sings on all the streets of the small village. We wanted to try anyway. We parked the car openly by the side of the road a bit next to the......(more)

The Gondolas of Medellín in Medellín, Colombia (Fri, 25 May 2018)
Metrocable of Medellín. Medellín is a forbiddingly steep city. As it expanded rapidly in the late 20th century, informal neighborhoods—usually unauthorized, unplanned, and unserved by city government—climbed up the slopes of the Medellín River valley. The mostly poor people in neighborhoods like Santo Domingo and Popular faced daunting commutes to jobs downtown, not least because roads were too narrow and steep for decent bus service. In 2004 the city pioneered a new kind of mass transit, a fast-moving urban gondola system called Metrocable that carries commuters from the hills directly to the light-rail station at the valley floor. The Metrocables—as of 2018 there are three of them, with more planned—have proved both wildly useful and popular, as well as extremely scenic. The cars, which each hold eight passengers, speed up the hills on an elevated cable at 10 miles an hour. They are not much different from a gondola that might take you up to the top of an Alp. But what’s different are the setting and the passengers. Stations are dropped right in the bustle of jam-packed city neighborhoods. Line K, the city’s first and most popular line, has 30,000 riders each day, and cuts commute times in half or more. They’ve also become popular with tourists, since they offer amazing views of the city. The Metrocables are wonderful, but they’re also strange. They make incessant noise, so people who live and work under them have to learn to block out the racket. The cars also offer excellent views into house and apartment windows, enabling urban spying.
