Exploring the Rotten Side of Germany

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

A Foggy Morning Deep in the Harz Mountains in Germany
A Foggy Morning Deep in the Harz Mountains in Germany

"It was a moment I had been hoping for. The first night of our summer vacation this year was really cold and that resulted in a beautiful fog the next morning. I almost issed it because I was too lazy to get up, but when I saw the sunlight through the window, I quickly got dressed, grabbed my camera and went outside. The smell of fresh coffee already filled the air and I just grabbed a few quick shots. This was actually the first time I've tried to take 5 shots for a HDR without a tripod."

Tour Report: Old Wine Inn [Revisit]

Published 2017-10-11

Abandoned BInn in the North of Germany

Only about a month after my first visit to the old inn, I returned for seconds together with my wife and our good friend Freddy from Nordgriller Urbex.

We were on a tour of the area anyway, and since the others hadn't been to this place yet, we made a short stop there.

Since the access strategy that Lost Places in Schleswig-Holstein und Umland and I had established worked nicely the first time, why change anything? We took the same parking spot and the same access way through the bush-covered window.

It was a great visit for all three of us - Freddy got a lot of nice decay, my wife got a lot of nice details, and I got to take the shots I'd missed the first time. ..(more)

Meteorological Pillar of the 19th Century in Salzburg, Austria (Thu, 19 Oct 2017)
Meteorological station in Residenplatz A beautiful example of artistry and science is located in a corner of the Alter Markt (Old Market) of Salzburg. The tiny weather station is covered in splendid, ornate decor. The pillar looks as though it belongs in a palace rather than out on the street. Gold Baroque flourishes adorn the base, sides, and top. Intricate details, including little sculptures, carvings, and a weather vane crown the structure. Measuring devices on the three sides give the temperature, the barometric pressure, and the humidity of Salzburg. A bronze plaque on the lower portion of one side lists the altitude as being 425.25 meters (1395.18 feet) above the Adriatic Sea. According to its plaque, the column is titled the Meteorological Pillar of the 19th century and dates to 1888. It was given to the city by the Stadtverein Salzburg, a civic association responsible for urban development. It’s now the most popular geocache in Salzburg and also the second most popular in all of Austria.
