a paradise for urban explorers. Even if I was not able to visit
Abkhazia with its masses of abandoned buildings (entry is currently
only possible from Russia), Georgia offers an incredible number of
great and easily accessible places in all regions of the country.
corona pandemic doesn't make traveling any easier. if the neighborhood
is poor of abandoned buildings, the stopgap solution can only be to
explore the less interesting places that have always been on the list,
but just not exciting enough.
now here is haus osterberg!
"blockwart"-mentality as in some places of southern germany (i know,
living without prejudices isn'tn easy...), i was surprised to find
friendly and interested people in switzerland while exploring abandoned
places. got lots of information about the corresponding places from
locals. thanks a lot!
exploring abandoned places in bulgaria must have been easier a few
years ago. most places are guarded and alarmed these days. but why
employ a guard observing a disused building? because it's cheap. really
cheap. fortunately some places just have dogs for guarding, but they
rather play around than attack trespassers.
is a great country, but unfortunately not for urban exploration. most
of the interesting dilapidated buildings have been reconstructed or
converted into historical tourist attractions. others, especially those
located in the bigger cities, are protected with high walls and the
wasteful use of barbed wire on top of it.
a few buildings remain at sommerland syd, which was one of the very few
abandoned man-made sites in denmark. now the place is full of trucks
and excavators for decommision...
an abandoned chocolate factory today, not knowing that there was still
more to explore in my former neighbourhood between hamburg and
flensburg. the building is going to be demolished the next weeks.
thanks to joachim, who told me about this place! the video will be
uploaded the next days.
postproduction of material from spain and gibraltar in progress. clips
will be published in december and will be containing an abandoned
casino in gibraltar, the ruins of the sugarmill of nerja, a beautiful
deserted hacienda with an integrated church near malaga and the huge
ruins of the cementera de atarfe.
unfortunately the abandoned observatory
in the centre of the sierra
nevada in southern spain is currently being reconverted. though the
is not that spectacular, it is placed in great mountain scenery. at
least they didn't tear it down...
