It was closed after the German reunification and apparently was abandoned almost over night.
For the population of the nearby city, this was an important company which provided lots of employment.
The area is pretty big.
Next to the main factory building, there are two large buildings, a couple of storage halls, living apartments for the workers and a bunker. I don't know hich functions the two other buildings had. One of them seems to have been the boiler house.
There is nothing left of the machines or anything that points to the former use of the building. In addition, the wooden floors on the upper levels are in danger of collapsing.
Here are the pictures I took from the outside, the inside shots will follow in the next post.
