Sportstadion im Militärlager

Built: 1833

Abandoned: 1994

Visited: 2008

Niedergörsdorf, Germany

In 1870 the Prussian army bought this land to built barracks. This site named Altes Lager became a big military site during the both World Wars. Later, during the Cold War it became a home for the Russian Army. Besides the barracks, an airfield and bunkers I found this small gym. In 1994 the buildings were abandoned when the Soviets left Germany after the end of the German division. Many buildings were rebuilt for housing, but the gym has a protected status and will not be demolished or redeveloped.
