This abandoned building was a catholic school hostel north of the city of Hamburg. It was used by various schools and youth groups for class travels. There is not much known about its history.
In 2010, the district attorney began investigating the institution because evidence was emerging regarding abusive acts that have supposedly happened in the 1950s.
When the hostel was closed is unknown, but in the same year that the investigations began, the owner was officially required by the authorities to demolish the unused building.
The demolition was executed sometime in the year 2018.
