Hospital BZ – Germany

I’ve managed to come across this old Military hospital and complex in Germany, this will become a little project i think for me in the next few weeks, as i spent 5hours here in the hospital section and only covered 20% of the site i would say, its massive (38 Acres).

Some of the areas in the complex are still in use and i had a few close calls while on site, some of the buildings look like barracks or housing and look relatively untouched so ill be looking for a few more revisits soon.

A little history of what i’ve managed to find is below, the land has been sold recently i will be gone in the coming months i think (sorry for the poor translation)
