More pictures of Beelitz
The former sports hall.
Some traces of former occupants. Erich Honecker , last head of state of the former GDR,
was the last prominent patient in the former biggest Soviet military hospital.
Some spooky corners. The place has been vandalised after it was abandoned , whatever people could take they took!
Traces of former glory.
When Beelitz was built in 1898 it was among the most modern and technically advanced hospitals in the world . Tuberculosis was a widespread disease with a fatal outcome in many cases.
It is possible to visit the ruins , even guided tours are now being offered. Many people just trespass which might end with a fall through some rotten floors!
