Kinderpsychiatrie (Germany)

Built around the 1930s, the ‘Kinderpsychiatrie’ used to cure children with psychiatric needs until the patients were moved to more modern facilities in a city nearby.

HH2 (Belgium)

The HH2 hospital dates back to the 1950s. Over the years the hospital expanded substantially; even adding a complete new wing. At a certain point, it became one of the biggest hospitals in the region with its own maternity, paediatrics departement and helicopter pad. The hospital only recently became abandoned and will be reconverted soon.

Hopital OD (Belgium)

In its heydays, this abandoned nursing home, which was built in the 1860s, had a capacity of approximately 100 beds. When the home had to close, the place was vandalized very quickly. Soon thereafter, the chapel was hermetically sealed to preserve its beauty. Recently, a reconversion-plan has been approved; the most delapidated wings have already been torn down. The central building and the chapel are awaiting reconstruction to commence.

Military Hospital R (Germany)

Abandoned military hospital in the former Eastern Germany. When the iron curtain fell and the Red Army left, the hospital was vacated. The only witnesses that remain of its past are a few Soviet murals and a couple of operation lamps.

Psychiatrie (Germany)

This psychiatric hospital dates back to the 1880s. Throughout the years, it has served many purposes. During both the First – and the Second World War, it was used as a hospital. Later on, it became a refuge for (male) mental patients. By the end of the 1990s, the hospital closed its doors. Even though the hospital was sold a mere two years after it shut down, the new owner never reinstated it and left the building to decay.
