    Dr Anna's House - Germany



    Visited with Nobby and Markymark


    History

    I actually object to reporting this as "Dr Anna's House", I'm not a fan of code-naming things but at least if you are, try and make it relevant at least. There's no connection here to anyone by the name of Anna or Steve (I've also seen it reported as Dr Steve's) but for the sake of people searching, and now that it's well known as Dr Anna's, then I'm gonna roll with it.

    In a small but rather affluent town near the centre of Germany lies a long street situated right in the centre of town overlooked by a huge hotel. There seem to be a number of clinics lining this particular street which would give some clue to the appropriate name of the road. Most clinics still seem in business, however, the very first clinic now lies derelict. It was originally the combined home and practice of urology specialist Dr K and wife/business partner Dr C. Born in 1910 and died at the age of 78 in 1988. Rumour has it that Dr K died in a car accident but I can't find any supporting evidence to substantiate this claim. However, upon his death, his wife Dr C continued practicing in this clinic until she also passed away. Assuming there were no family or dependants, the house was never cleared and is now a true time capsule of this couples entire life, business and personal.

    This will go down as one of my favourite explores to date, the site just gave so much. I could have spent days in here looking around at the masses of artefacts left behind. The more you looked, the more the story of this place unfolded and the more interesting pieces of the jigsaw you were able to piece together. I felt as though I was a visitor in someone's home and therefore respected it as such, usually it just feels like I'm wandering round some trashed building but this was different, feelings of melancholy came over me. This clearly, very wealthy, couples' legacy just left like this with no-one to pass it on to.

    This was a truly enigmatic location, and the building oozes a macabre atmosphere. On the ground floor you'll find 2 consulting/operating rooms complete with a vast array of surgical implements relating to their speciality field in Urology. The rooms were packed with bottles and packets of drugs, surgical equipment, operating chairs complete with leg stirrups and disturbingly a fluid catch tray beneath the seat. Operating lights, test tube centrifuges, catheters, urethral sounds, forceps, syringes and not least, glass jars with human kidneys preserved in formaldehyde. The smell from these took me back to the time I explored the Horror Labs in Belgium.

    Other rooms on the ground floor took shape of your standard waiting area/reception, a reference library full of Urology based literature, many in their native tongue and also many in English! This was a very well educated couple. At the other end of the ground floor, we found what seemed to be a laboratory for testing screen samples and doing tests. Adjoining this was a store room packed full of drugs and new syringe needles and other medical paraphernalia.

    The upper 3 floors were the couples' personal living space although you'll still find plenty of reference to their clinic up here, many more medical books and photographs of the two doctors. As you ascend the grand curved staircase, one of the first rooms you'll find is a large lounge area big enough to comfortably fit a full size Steinway grand piano. The doctor also seemed to be a keen hunter, there were a number of animal skins scattered around the the various rooms along with the horns of small deer or mountain goats. Other rooms included a large library or study full of books and a desk, plenty of guest bedrooms and of course the master bedroom complete with wardrobes full of stylish ladies and gents clothing. For a couple living life in the 50's and 60's, they were very well travelled, evidence of travels to many foreign countries including Madeira and the UK were found by looking through slides and negatives from their travels.

    Please enjoy these photo's as much as I enjoyed taking them!
