THE ABANDONED HOTEL IN GERMANY
This was a small abandoned Budget Kurhotel in the German spa town Bad Meinberg. The hotel was run by a Dutch family. Inside, nature is taken over.
Many years this town has been one of the most famous spa resorts with medicinal springs in Germany. Therefore many hotels were built around the park with a gas spring or mofette, which used to be mistaken for a spring of water. Also the natural sulphur moor was seen as a remedy for several illnesses. All in all the town was a famous touristic attraction for the elderly.
In 2000 two huge modern hotel complexes were built in Bad Meinberg, consequently making life difficult for the owners of older and smaller hotel. As a result several of them went bankrupt and the Dutch owners of this hotel were forced to close its doors. The hotel consists of two buildings. One part is still pretty clean. But the other building is completely overgrown by moss, even plants started growing inside. It is probably not abandoned for that long, however the water damage made it decay quickly.
Photos of this Budget Kurhotel were taken in 2017. Also check this more luxury hotel in the same town. The hotel was demolished in December 2021.
