"It had been more than six months since our last tour together with our friend Freddy, and we really had fun again driving around in the Northeast of Germany looking for abandoned spots. The highlight for this tour was an abandoned old barge that had been used to transport bricks from a brick factory through various channels to the river for further transport. In fact, this rusty old ship - next to some remains of the loading terminal - is the only thing that is left of the brick factory.

Next to the short way, the place also has played a significant part in the dark history of the Third Reich, which makes it even more interesting to explore. During the summer, the local farmers' cows are grazing here, but in the winter, an eerie silence lies over the entire area.
The weather was grey and cold when North Urbex and I arrived at the location and found a place to park in a nearby industrial area. We walked along the fence until we found a hole which was big enough to enter....(more)
