    In 1910 a military training camp was built, the now abandoned Haus der Offiziere was added in 1914 as military sports school, which was later adopted seamlessly by the Nazis. This was just part of the huge site which became known as Wünsdorf or “Little Moscow” in the 1950’s. The town which grew to accommodate 35,000 people from the Soviet republic was significant in size and worthy of its nickname. As with many other areas of Germany the Russians withdrew in 1994, since this time the town has remained largely unoccupied. A significant number of the former Soviet buildings are currently up for sale with various suggested development opportunities, it its possible that this will once again become a thriving town but for now little Moscow is left rotting away.

    Visited with Andy K, Lowri, Scott, Stussy and Carl. Another giant military site was to be our next location, this time the previous use of the now abandoned Haus der Offiziere was a Sports training facility as relatively small part of a large military town occupied by the Russians until the mid 1990’s. As we approached the site it was clear that a significant number of the nearby buildings were also unoccupied and derelict. Lots of stripped out apartment buildings mixed in among occupied ones it was quite unusual. The sports complex is separated off with its own fence and secured pretty well. There are several buildings on site and we managed to gain access to the majority with the exception of the Officers House. Some of my favourite features in this place were the Spiral Staircase in the main building, the indoor swimming pool and The corridor which lit up with the backlit picture of a Russian soldier.

    Great set of photos from a great location.
    I have been there twice (and got some amazing shots of the boilers for the swimming pool), but have never seen your "Room with table and world map" and "Backlit poster of soldier". Which part of the building are they in?

    Thanks @The Shepshed Diamondback Glad you like them :)

    Both in the Main Officers building... the backlit soldier was a tricky one to find as it's just in a corridor... lights are off I just saw an extension cable running to a plug and hit the switch and it lit up like fucking Christmas tree :D winner! I think second floor somewhere but might be slightly off with that... the room with the world map and war memorabilia if memory serves me correct would be if you're looking at building from the front from the main doors go right its ground floor about 2-4 doors down on the right again :).

    I missed the boilers in the swimming pool but have seen some snaps they look rather nice :) It's a lovely place I'd definitely go back!

    I will do a couple of posts soon, with my photos of the Haus Der Offiziere and the Bunkers.

    Maybe they have removed the desk and maps since you went, because I'm pretty sure I saw every room on the ground floor.
