Farmhouse Dogwood [DK]

When Pixelcracker, Lost Places in Schleswig-Holstein und Umland and I met up that morning in early July of last year, it was my first tour to Denmark since my wife's family reunion about one year before, and I was happy to have to chance to go for a tour there again.
Since it was only a day's tour, we limited ourselves to some spots in the southern part of the country.
Our first stop was an old farm house. Structurally, it was the classic Danish farmhouse with four sides and a yard in the middle.
The four parts are usually the farmhouse, a barn, stables and a workshop and/or quarters for the farm hands.
We drove by the place a couple of times to check for watchful neighbors, but the ones we saw didn't seem to be interested in us, so we parked a little away from the location and walked right onto the premises.
Part of the houses have already fallen apart, with collapsed walls and roofs. The former workshop/stable was full of trash and stuff that hinted to a former use as an artisan's café or so, something that is really popular in Denmark.
The main farmhouse seemed to have gone rudimentary renovation some time ago, but the efforts have mostly been destroyed by time again.
After about an hour of walking around and taking photos, we left for the next spot.

Tank Regiment G.

As final spot for our short tour of Eastern Germany in June of last year, Lost Places in Schleswig-Holstein und Umland and I chose the location of an East German tank regiment that used to be part of the 8th Mobile Artillery Division.
Getting there was easy; finding a parking spot wasn't. Later I found out that there would have been a good opportunity on another side of the area, but at the time, we took what we found and that was right at the entrance.
It worked out nicely, the place was easily accessible, and the first building was a little jackpot right away, because we found a really cool projector room complete with projectors. It was only a little trashed unlike the rest of the place, so we managed to get quite a few nice shots there.
The other buildings were mostly barracks and empty halls. Some nice decay was also to be found.
When we reached the active part of the area which is used by some company, we turned around and went back to the car.
Just as we had left and were turning on the main road, a police car came and passed us, turning and driving right to were we had parked.
They turned around again, followed us for some time at some distance and were gone at some point.
Guess we were lucky not to get caught.

Police Ammunition Depot B.

Another short stop on the tour I took through Eastern Germany together with Lost Places in Schleswig-Holstein und Umland late in June of last year was this former ammunition depot.
Where decades ago ammunition was stored for the East German Police and the "Northern German Combat Groups", now only the bunkers remain - and they have been turned into bat habitats. The entire area is being renaturised along with so-called "insect-hotels". Except for the bunkers, all other buildings have been demolished and the area is freely accessible.
So we just parked the car and went for a short walk in the park.
