After the psychiatric hospital, my wife and I had one more abandoned healthcare institution to visit on our fourth day of summer vacation last year.
Finding a place to park proved difficult. The old hospital ist located in a forest with no accessible road, and the main road had no place to park.
The next village was too far away to be walking. After a little strategic meeting, we decided to park on a field next to some nearby houses. We hoped that no one would see us or if they did, become suspicious.
We packed our stuff and walked up to the fence that blocked the long hospital driveway. There was a door in the fence, and naturally I tried to open it which I naturally didn't think would work - but it did! The door was open, so we were on the premises.
After a short...

The tour of the abandoned smelting works had been a great start, and around noon, we had reached our second destination of the day, an abandoned psyciatric hospital that has been decaying for about fifteen years now.
After arriving at the site, we found a nice parking spot right away that was under a large tree, so the sun wouldn't heat up the car too much. It had become really hot outside, so first we took a little break to get acclimatized. About twenty minutes later, we jumped the fence and went inside.
The long time of abandonment and the location near a residential area has led to a considerable amount of decay and vandalism. There some nice corners still to be found, though, and so the exploration was really worth it. Due to the sun standing so high, the light wasn't...

I have been dreaming 10 years about traveling through Iceland by car. It seems that nearly everyone I talk to wants to desperately visit this quitte small island in the North Atlantic ocean. I can not blame them, because there is something really special about Iceland: the weather is rough, the landscapes are from out of space and the large waterfalls are one of a kind. For years I have been watching photos of Iceland, and now the time is there. Me and my girlfriend are going to Iceland!

Packing our bags

I have been backpacking through many countries in the world with only a backpack and as little as possible equipment. The weight of my backpack has always been around 15/17 KG (camera equipment included). Pretty light, huh? But this time I will use my travelbag...

Like every day during our summer vacations, we started our fourth day of exploring with a hearty breakfast at the hostel where we stayed.
During berakfast, we finialized the plan we had made during dinner the night before.
The plan for the day was to explore three locations in the southeastern foothills of the Harz mountains. So after breakfast, we loaded our gear into the car and were on our way.
The first spot we were going to check out was an old industrial area - the Smelting Works.
After many years of making an impact on the regional metalworking industry, it is now being used as an area for paintball - at least that's what the sign on the fence said.
There was no one there and it didn't look like the area was being used, so we parked our car out of sight and...

This is a village of dreams for urbexers...my wife and I had been there in 2014 and had explored two sanatoriums, found out that one more had been torn down and didn't have time to visit another one.
Time to make up for this omission!
It was a late sunny summer afternoon and the village was on the way back to our "urbex homebase" in the middle of the Harz mountains.
Just like two years ago, we just parked at the street and walked past the gatehouse into a small patch of forest. After a few meters, we could see the old building almost lurking through the tall pines that seemed to swallow a lot of the afternoon sun...
Getting in was easy enough - the front door was open. Since the sun was low, the ground floor was so dark that we had to use our flashlights to be able to...

In this case, the name and location can be openly said, since this place has been demolished in November 2016, about three months after my wife and I paid a short visit to this old hotel.
It was no priority spot for us, but it was conveniently on the way between two spots and we still had some time left.
The hotel was located at the western foothills of the Harz mountains in Germany, and we had taken a tour coming from the middle of the mountain range driving west. The hotel in Barbis in the German state of Niedersachsen was kind of the point where we turned around to drive back East towards the last location of the day.
There was a large parking place right next to the ruin of the hotel, so we just used that to park our car.
The hotel was surrounded by a construction...

Yes, it's only the administration building, but that's about all that's left with the exception of a lot of remains in the forest behind the building, and we neither had the time nor the equipment to go for a thorough exploration of that.
But let's start from the top.
After we were finished at the grinding shop, we were on the way to our next stop which was going to be a little less urbex, but still interesting.
Shortly before we got there, there was an obviously abandoned building right by the side of the road. Since there was a parking spot right across, we decided to make a quick stop and check it out.
Getting in was easy enough. There was a gaping hole in the fence, and the building itself was wide open as well.
There were no clues to the former use of this...
