On a nice and warm summer day late in June of last year, I went on a nice little tour through the Northeast of Germany together with Andreas from Lost Places in Schleswig-Holstein und Umland.
I had chosen a bunch of spots and planned a good route that was goint to take us on a nice round trip through the beautiful German countryside.
We started relatively early and arrived at the first little spot after about two hours of driving.
This first spot was a small red brick chateau whose origins date back to the 18th century. The dominant feature is its facade which resembles a sacral building.
The house is located in a small village, but there was no one around when we got there, so we parked the car close by and just went round back looking for a way in. The grass was really high, and I hit my leg on a tree stump. It was bleeding a little, but nothing serious. Nice start for an explore, though...
Anyway, there was an open door, so we were in really quick. As with many old buildings in Eastern Germany, the use by East German communities has left its marks on this one as well. Hardly anything is in its original state.
It was a short explore as there was not much to see, and we were on the way to the next spot within an hour...
