    Took a bit of an unasked for disaster to get here, we were on route out of Belgium on our way to Germany to our furthest location on our derp list, on route the engine cut out on the motorway! Luckily there was a slip road to coast up and put the hazards on. Couldn't exactly ring the AA so contacted Markymark's euro breakdown cover, not realising it was a bank holiday in Belgium from Thursday (when we broke down) to Monday we suddenly felt a sense of doom and helplessness. The breakdown cover offered to put us up in a hotel until Tuesday, this wasn't going to happen and after a few frustrated phone calls managed to get a tow truck out to us, to cut a long story short and to add insult to injury and fuck up even more an already cocked up situation the tow truck driver slammed on the anchors at a set of traffic lights, the car slammed into the cab of the truck and managed to pierce the radiator, smash the A/C and break the fan and bumper!....he hadn't lashed the car down.

    We basically lost pretty much 3/4 of a day with a frustrating language barrier trying to sort the continuation of our trip, we managed to get a hire car and little did they know we pushed on into Germany to our next location.

    A few reports are floating about with various names and monikers. after being here i've got a new found respect for such sites as this, there is so much stuff to look at and a story to be told. You really get a sense of what life was like in this location, all the bits and bobs and photo's, books, documents, medical instruments really do tell a story. The more you look around the more the story unfolds in your mind. It was a talking point for days after and will continue to do so for some time. After we arrived and finished here for the day we decided after some noodles and few Lidl German lagers to return the next day bright and early and document some more,

    In a quaint quiet small town set in the hills in central Germany lies the house of Herr Doktor, Born in 1910 Herr Doktor practised with his wife, also a doctor. He died in the late 1980's and the house was occupied by his wife for some years afterwards until she sadly passed away. The house lies abandoned just off a quiet road a stones throw away from the busy town centre. It's very much a time capsule with an amazing array of interesting items scattered about everywhere you look. It is assumed that in all likelihood the doctor and his wife had no children and were more than likely pre deceased, it has been difficult after being here to find out much more about this incredible location.
    The building oozes atmosphere, not least on the ground floor where two consulting/operating rooms housing an array of old medical equipment still in place - drugs, surgical equipment, seats with legs stirrups and operating lights, theres even jars of formaldehyde kidneys in square glass cases.

    Also on the ground floor there is a study with a large window that looks over a large now overgrown garden, the room comprises of comfortable looking reading chairs and heavily laden book shelves.

    The first floor is reached by a curving stair case and includes the living area of the house with a room that houses a large piano, theres is rooms scattered with photo's of all shapes, sizes and styles, there are a large number of slides and tiny negatives which really paint a picture of the life they once lived. Some of the photo's were dated back to 1950's and showed Herr Doktor and his wife on holiday, some of which were in London.
    There is a grand bedroom with large bed with neatly pressed clothes still hanging in the wardrobe and a large number of shoes were scattered around the property showing that Herr Doktor and his wife were certainly well off and rather well dressed.

    This is one of the best explores i've done and will hard to beat in the future.























    Thanks for looking

    A truly incredible place
