    For the second half of my Berlin exploits (first half here: http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=71357) I decided to go explore the abandoned Ice Factory that sits next to the Spree, as it was quite central. The site itself is not too far from the East Side Gallery.

    Some history courtesy of abandonedberlin:
    I ended up doing this site solo, so I was a bit anxious on the way in, but just as I started to get set up two German guys said hello on their way out and it turned into a more relaxing explore.

    On with the photos!

    I managed to not get a decent shot of the whole building somehow. :(

    This was the largest of the few pieces of machinery that have survived.

    Some lovely steel stairs in the corner of the first room. Unfortunately the whole place has been pretty well trashed, with broken glass now the carpets for the once tiled floors and an assortment of graffiti for wallpaper.

    There is a courtyard in the middle of the building, the contents of which showed a lot of signs of homeless activity.

    There were two ceiling-crane machines like this on the ground floor.

    The next floor up showed just how barren the rest of the building was now.

    The next floor wasn't too interesting either, although interestingly the only door in the entire building that was sealed had a reminder of Berlin's past hanging in its window:

    This left only the roof to see, which contained the other piece of machinery of note.

    I contemplated climbing the mini-crane for a self-shot, but didn't want to risk anything too sketchy solo.

    It was only when I was going through my shots that I noticed that the chimney had rungs. Probably wouldn't have climbed it anyway :eek::

    That brought to an end to my trip to the ice factory, although on the way out I saw an appealing building over the road, and almost went in until I realised that quite a few people in the flats 20 meters away were watching :banghead

    Any constructive criticism on my photos would be very welcome. Anything else too, I suppose ;)
