No records in the history books, not mentioned in any newspaper: This abandoned house is located in the outskirts of a spa town somewhere in Germany. The farmyard of the building we were visiting this time has become overgrown. It was the house of a gardener who used to live and work here. In this arboretum he was growing trees and bushes. But without any nursing the garden started to run wild and became an impenetrable thicket. But how did it come to this? Why did the gardener abandon his home? The answer to that is waiting inside.
Houses where people used to live in the past always leave a lasting impression on us when we are exploring them. Old residential buildings offer in-depth looks in the most private of a person. All those small details you can find are telling us what kind of a person he or she was. So inevitably the question arises of whether this is still a documentary of a forgotten place or is it already acted out voyeurism? What do you think?
By the way, if you find a chalkboard in an abandoned place it's usually filled with writing. Some urbexers love to perpetuate themselves and we had to clean one side at first. So to say we were staging here as well.
After viewing the whole site it's now time to tell you guys our theory abput this place. It's hard to find any information about the house online so we had to orient ourselves by those clues we found. We know that the gardener was old. Apparently he lived alone so his wife probably died some years ago. He became a nursing case and therefore he wasn't able to carry on his profession. That's why he couldn’t bear the running expenses and his garden became overgrown.
So after that he was brought to the retirement home and he had to abandon his property. Or the other possibility: He passed away. And now his old home is being trespassed by plenty of people and not everyone has good intentions like we do. The home is getting destroyed and the furniture is getting stolen. And that is the sad story of the gardener’s home.

Great visit! Houses filled up with thousands of stories are always a rare gem these days. Glad this one is intact, poor man must've felt lonely and overwhelmed when his wife passed away... I don't know what I would've done...
Keep it up!

Absolutely incredible find! Great photos too. I love the photo of the blackboard in the attic. Such a shame to hear the place is getting damaged.

Amazing find!! This might be your best post yet. I absolutely love time capsule houses like this. Keep up the good work and hopefully the house stays in it's current shape for some time still, or the contents are moved elsewhere before thieves are able to make off with them.
