Tour Report: A Place of Execution

This abandoned military shooting range was the second spot that I visited together with my friend North Urbex on a tour back in November of last year.
It is really close to my home, so it was about time that I pay a visit.
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. First, we found the remains of the old shooting area that was used during the time of the Nazis. We then went on to check out the newer facilities. Local teens have endulged themselves in vandalism and graffiti "art", so little is left of the original surfaces.
Nonetheless, it was an interesting place to explore, and we checked out every last corner before we drove off to the next spot.

Tour Report: Villa "Red Room"

In November of last year, I got a visit by my friend North Urbex who was in town for a couple of days.
We had decided to go for a short touor to check out some spots in the region, and this abandoned villa in my hometown was our first spot relatively early in the morning.
We only had to drive a couple of minutes from my home until we got to the place. We parked the car a bit further away to not arise any suspicions - the villa is in a wealthy part of town, and neighbors in these quarters are kind of twitchy when it comes to strangers sneaking around their houses ;)

We had to wait a couple of minutes until some people had passed, and then we leisurely strolled right onto the premises, up to the front door - and the damn thing was open! Man, we were lucky! One step and we were in, clsed the door behind us and started checking the place out.

The house was pretty empty, and there wasn't too much decay, but we managed to get a couple of nice shots. I especially liked the nice light in the basement...I do like basements :)

Tour Report: Castle "Charlotte's Valley"

This one was a completely unexpected and accidental find. After a dey of exploring in Eastern Germany, my wife and I, along with our friends Pixelcracker and Lost Places in Schleswig-Holstein und Umland, were on our way home. We were driving to our planned location when we all saw the beautiful facade of a thoroughly burned building, and we decided to stop for a quick peek.
This renovated old castle caught on fire not too long ago and burned down to its foundations, so there really wouldn't have been anything to see even if we had gotten inside.
But from the outside, we were still able to see the castle's former glory.
