Foundry P. [Revisit]

Only about a week after we had returned from our Easter tour, Freddy from Nordgriller Urbex and I went on our next short tour.
We had only planned a couple of nearby locations, so we didn't have to meet up too early and had time for a coffee or two before we left for our first spot of the day, an abandoned foundry.
Freddy hadn't visited the old foundry yet, and I was inclined to go for a revisit since the first time I was there, was a relatively short visit and I had to leave because it was getting dark.
It was already April, so the sun was up a little higher when we parked the car and took the same way that I had taken almost three months earlier.
The "old" entrance was still there, so the way in was easy.
We took our time, even checked out the completely empty office building, and when we were finally about to leave, a guy drove onto the yard and got out of the car. He asked us what we were doing, and we told him that we had gotten in through the hole in the fence to take photos.
Surprisingly enough, he reacted very friendly and said that taking photos was totally alright but that he hated sprayers and vandals.
We said thanks and goodbye and then we left - this time though the open gate :)

Operation "Easter Basket" - Maison Nutcracker

After going for a quick visit of the abandoned technical museum, we only had one location left to visit before finally heading home. It's been generally called the Nutcracker House and is located somewhere in the woods of North Rhine-Westfalia.
At least the parking spot was kind of on the way, but there was a pretty long walk ahead of us. And most of it was uphill...
We first passed some houses where people were obvioulsy having a party. We could smell barbeque and hear them talking. At the end of the street, we found the path into the woods. This path soon turned into a really cool hollow way full of leaves from the last fall and with old trees lining both sides.

The path seemed to go on forever, and since we didn't know the exact coordinates of the place we were looking for, we started to doubt if we would ever find it.
Just then, we passed a field on our left side, and at the end of this field, we could see an abandoned house with crumbling walls looking at us through the trees.
The rest was easy - the back door was open.

Although the house was relatively small, we spent a considerable amount of time in there. There were so many details. It was the perfect finale for a great tour!

Operation "Easter Basket" - Technical Museum B. [Revisit]

After we had dropped off Elmar from Lichtbeschatter at the train station, we went on the way home ourselves - but not without stopping at one or two spots on the way.
The first location on our way back was the abandoned technical museum that my wife and I had first visited in early 2015 and that Freddy from Nordgriller hadn't visited yet.
Since it was conveniently close to our route, we made it our first stop.
It's a quick stop-and-shoot location. Since it is publically accessible and open-air, there is no attempting to get in, you just park your car, get out and get she photos you like.

Last I heard, the owner had told a local newspaper that all the relics will be gone by the end of 2016. I don't know if this has been done or if there are still some exhibits left, but it looks like the time for this location is running out.
