The gorgeous and peaceful Harz Mountains in the heart of Germany are an ideal place for abandoned buildings. The climate is harsh and the weather erratic – which encourage decay and offers eerily beautiful sceneries from time to time. In some cases the vacancy is alarmingly high which leads to a high number of abandoned properties like factories and sanatoriums – but most of all abandoned hotels. With borrowed equipment we’re embarking on a journey through time: Off the beaten tourist path we’re looking for forgotten witnesses of the past.

Video:


Our journey started with a large question mark. We didn’t know anything about our first destination of the day. We had the coordinates and the name of the hotel but we didn’t find any pictures at all and we didn’t know whether this place was even accessible or not. We were glad when we had arrived and saw that this building was at least not demolished. We never heard of this place before – Was it possible that this abandoned hotel was an absolute sleeper?

YES! As soon as we were inside the place we knew that it was an outstanding location. As it turned out this abandoned site was one of the most untouched ones we have explored so far.

It’s nearly impossible to find any information about this building. But as it seems it was some kind of family business. On the ground floor of the hotel you can find the living quarters of the operators.

It's a fact that the hotel has a long history and that it’s over a hundred years old. In the 1940s, there was a major fire inside the building and several floors were destroyed. Shortly after that the hotel was confiscated by the Nazi regime and used as a maternity hospital. After World War 2 this site was confiscated again – this time by the British occupying troops. Due to the massive number of refugees the total population of the village tripled – a lot of them were accommodated in the hotel. But here our chronicle is ending. We couldn’t find out why this place was abandoned – you can only speculate. Maybe the hotel was too far off the beaten track. But as it seems this place was still in use around ten years ago.

Here's another good one. I might be off on the details as I'm in a hurry so I'm running on memory.

Lady left Paris during WWII but left the apartment to be paid for by a trust or something. She passed on, but the apartment kept getting paid. Someone finally went hmmmmmm and decided to take a look in the place, and it's as left at the start of WWII.

I'm wondering if we are going to get a lot of time warp houses in the near future as baby boomers get old & leave behind their long term homes.

Honestly depends on where the 'boomers are hailing from. In a place like Toronto, the housing market is so hot nobody is going to simply abandon anything. In a shithole of a city or town, I can see it being easier to abandon a place than to bother selling it.




One day I got a good camera.

In the UK most abandonments seem to be when someone has died with no close next of kin to sort out clearing out the property & selling it.
