Once cute dolls left for years in the forest which due to constantly changing weather conditions has turned into something creepy. This spooky site was supposed to be the least demanding location on that trip to Germany. No climbing over the walls or entering the buildings through the windows, just finding the spooky spot in the forest. However the closer I was the more unsure it felt. When I was planning this trip I had to blow away a thick layer of dust from the coordinates of this place. What if the location already doesn’t exist? What if having just approximate coordinates I won’t find the site and will spend the whole evening searching for it?
What can be creepier than old decaying dolls? Most likely only old decaying dolls in the abandoned building taken over by nature and decay. A spectacular composition of moss, mold and significantly bitten by time toys—that’s the best way to describe an old holiday home located in a small village in Germany. It is also the reason why you can spend in this small decaying building hours, not feeling at all how time is passing by, no matter whether you have your camera with yourself or just save the images that your eyes catch deep in your mind—so that your uncouscioness had some material for your future nightmares.
Beelitz-Heilstätten, a district of Beelitz (Germany), is home to a large hospital complex of about 60 buildings including a cogeneration plant erected from 1898 on according to plans of architect Heino Schmieden. Originally designed as a sanatorium by the Berlin workers’ health insurance corporation, the complex from the beginning of World War I on was a military hospital of the Imperial German Army. During October and November 1916, Adolf Hitler recuperated at Beelitz-Heilstätten after being wounded in the leg at the Battle of the Somme.
