Soon to be Demolished - Abandoned Residence

A fellow user from the lost-places-board that I am a moderator in, came up with this little gem. It is a residential, mansion-like house in a little village in northern Germany.
I couldn't find anything about the history of the house.
From the looks of it, it was built sometime between 1850 and 1900. The newest newspapers and correnspondence that I found inside dated back to 2005.
The village used to be home to a family of master builders from the late 1600s until the 1800s. Who knows, maybe the house we visited was built by them...

The interior was very run-down, lots of junk lying around, so there really wasn't much opportunity for wide shots, but some of the details were prettey neat.

A Kitchen and a Cinema - Abandoned Air Force NCO School and Barracks (Part 6)

This is the final post from our first visit of the abandoned air force NCO school.
A coouple of days ago, I read that one of the buildings burned down, I think it was the former petty officer's mess.
These are probably the last photos from this building intact. It has a huge kitchen, almost as big as the large mess hall's, and it has a movie theater. Well, it has a large room with a cinema screen and a projector room, so I guess that counts.

Anyway, enjoy the last set from this visit!

The Chrome Kitchen - Abandoned Air Force NCO School and Barracks (Part 5)

This was only the second building we entered.
Judging by the numbers we saw on many of the front doors, there are at least 34 buildings on the premises. I think we went into 4 or 5 of them, so there is still a lot to discover...
Anyway, this second building turned out to be the mess hall and the kitchen.

The huge kettles are all still there, only the pots and pans are missing. There is a lot of chrome and metal parts, and the kitchen really looks clean in spite of ten years of decay.

Basements and Bunkers - Abandoned Air Force NCO School and Barracks (Part 4)

The basement of the water works was the first one we entered, so it makes sense to put the "bunkers-post" right here.
All buildings we entered had sheltered basements and most of them also bunkers. Two of the barrack buildings even have nuclear shelters, and also the officer's and petty officer's club had shelters.
All the bunkers still had a lot of equipment in them. Beds, toilets, metal drums, seats...
We also found rooms for various purposes in the basements, even a photo laboratory! The heating systems and distributors were still fully intact, so they made for some nice pictures, too.
Only one bunker was under water, so we were able to walk through a bunch of them...
