Untouched Abandoned Theater - Germany, 2018 < on 5/20/2018 6:45 PM > | Reply with Quote
At the edge of a spa park this gorgeous building is located. Once it was used as a sanatorium and also a huge theater is part of the building complex. After 15 years of vacancy the interior offers great motives for photos as well as a unique glance at the past. Join us on a travel back in time.
This impressive building somewhere in Germany had been on our urbex bucket list for years. Although it has been abandoned for around 15 years now, luckily, there are no damages caused by vandalism so far. Though the whole furnishings has been removed by now. Only a few objects are left inside the building. But a variety of details can still be discovered here.
One of the many highlights of this place is the entrance hall. Apart from the pillars it's also characterized by an impressive wall picture. This is just one section of the picture but it already reveals a bounty of details.
The building was constructed in the 1950s. Because of the nearby thermal spring this location was just perfect for a sanatorium. Back then those doors, windows and the balcony were all made of solid oak.
The centerpiece of the building is this huge theater hall. The hall has enough space to seat over 500 people. The acoustics in this room are so good that even radio recordings were produced here back then.
For approximately 15 years the building has been standing empty. Unfortunately, we don't know the reason for that. But we guess there was no demand anymore and the trend of time had simply been missed. After it was abandoned people were desperately looking for a new owner but as it seems nobody dares to invest in this huge building complex. Although there had been a plan to awake this historical sanatorium from its deep slumber a few years ago the buyer never paid. So the redevelopment failed. The building was supposed to be turned into a sports medical rehabilitation center.
And now the ravages of time are taking their toll. The beautiful glass pavilion has lost the former glance. In the last few months a terrible storm caused great damage here. The historical stuccoed ceiling was nearly entirely destroyed.

Another vote for the dressing room. What a wonderful glimpse back in time as people sat at those very mirrors and prepared their face and hair for the show. Loved the look at the numbered coat racks, the sound equipment, and cameras. When i see strips of film left behind, i always wonder if you could determine what was on it. Excellent trip, Video and Pics, Thanks So Much!
