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."

GALLERY UPDATE: District Hospital W.

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: House of the Old Couple [Revisit]

Published 2018-05-14

Abandoned Farmhouse in Denmark

Only four weeks after my first visit to this place, I got the opportunity to return for a revisit together with my wife and our friend Freddy from Nordgriller Urbex.
We had planned a short tour through the South of Denmark and since the initial photos from this little house didn't seem to be enough, we made this one our first spot of the day.
It was all easy enough - parking not too far away, access through the front door just like the last time.
What I had forgotten since the first time was that the attic - the place where most of the nice shots could be taken - was the least safe spot to be in that house.....(

Ciudad Real Central Airport in Ciudad Real, Spain (Thu, 24 May 2018)
Abandoned just four years after it was built, this modern ghost airport is one of the many victims of Spain's economic bust. Opened in 2008 as the first private airport in Spain, it never reached the 10 million travelers a year it was designed for, or even got close. Ciudad Real Central Airport (Aeropuerto Central Ciudad Real) was built in the tiny town of Ciudad Real, about an hour south of Madrid in a little-traveled stretch of central Spain. It was dubbed the Don Quijote Airport after the literary hero of the region, and there were big plans in store for the project. Instead, the airport went bankrupt when Spain's economy took a turn in 2012, and has stood deserted ever since. The ghost airport is one of the more notorious remnants of Spain's construction boom in the mid-2000s, that left scores of buildings including two other airports unused after the bubble burst (Alguaire Airport in Catalonia and Castellón-Costa Azahar Airport near Valencia). The deserted airport has a single runway, as well as a visitors centre nearby that has also been closed in 2012. It is currently for sale, and while there was a bid from China to buy it for a tiny fraction of the original price, the future of the airport remains uncertain.
