Monastery P (Belgium)

Monastery dating back to the 17th century. During the French Revolution, the monastery became a refuge for psychiatric patients. The nowadays abandoned ward was built in the 1930s and became abandoned in 2007 when the patients were moved to modern buildings on the same site. The ward will however soon be demolished.

Maison Chez Fien (Belgium)

Well hidden in a remote location amid the fields of a quaint little village in Belgium, one can find the small villa ‘Maison Chez Fien’. This austere little dwelling was abandoned in a hurry. Stuffed with slowly decaying household equipment, pottery, glassware and books, it acts as an untouched witness of times past.

Gartendom (Germany)

Built on the grounds of a former coal mine, the impressive Gartendom was constructed around the turn of the century. Its purpose was to house a large garden exhibition. However, after only two years, this majestic glass and steel structure was abandoned. Nowadays, the only remaining witness of the domes’ former function is the tree growing in its centre. During the years of abandonment, the Gartendom fell pray to vandals, graffiti artists and BMX enthusiasts, who built a BMX course through the inner circle.
