German Exploring adventures

October 2013

One of the locations we wanted to do on our last Eurotour was “Dr Anna’s haus”. This involved an early alarm call and a 20 mile drive in the rain. It was hard to see that the house was decayed when passing it in the car but after a brief scout, it was plain to see that it was decayed and left to rot. After assembling ourselves and getting in, we had to wait about an hour and a half for sunrise but then the light was dull due to the rain so we had poor light and long exposure times to contend with.

Not sure on the history but apparently Dr Anna is still alive, over 100 years old and being cared for in nursing home accommodation. Her name and her husband’s were apparently above the door of the Urological clinic they ran down in the lower levels of the basement. The house is a split level affair, with clinical and waiting / administration spaces on the ground and lower ground floors with an opulent house on the floors above. Dr Anna was clearly a well dressed lady judging by the amount of swanky old clothing and bags still there and the furniture. Not to mention the hobbies and travels they clearly had judging by the items left behind. Her husband died in a car crash sometime in the 90s and the home has been left to rot.

These are a few of the photos from this amazing place below and the rest can be found here:
