Abandoned Places in Berlin

Abandoned Places in Berlin

Berlin is well-known for its abandoned places and for that reason a great playground for urban explorers! My first post about abandoned places in Berlin featured the old Bärenquell brewery in Schöneweide and the old ice fabric in Mitte. Today I’m going to introduce you to some other, decayed buildings in and around Berlin and a nice urban exploration blog…

Abandoned Olympic Village

Half of the village which was built for the 1936 Olympic Games near Berlin (Elstal, Wustermark) can still be visited (they other half was kept in good condition and is some kind of a museum nowadays) and although the trip takes some time it’s definitely worth to go!

Old Iraqi Embassy

Also the former Iraqi embassy to East Germany (Tschaikowskistraße 51, 13156 Berlin) is still open for everyone! It’s just amazing to stumble upon all these old papers, files, photos and other stuff…

Shuttered Cigarette Factory

The old Garbáty cigarette factory (Berliner Straße 124, 13187 Berlin) is definitely a must to visit for everyone who is interested in the history of Jewish industrialists in Germany!

Decayed Theme Park

Spreepark (Wasserweg, 12435 Berlin) is Berlin’s former most famous theme park. Located riverside of the Spree, it still hosts a giant wheel and several other funfair rides and dinosaurs…

The most popular blog about abandoned places in Berlin is abandonedberlin.com, including several large experience reports and detailed directions.
