Budget Kurhotel


This was a small abandoned Budget Kurhotel in the German spa town Bad Meinberg. A Dutch family ran the hotel. 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, the construction of two large modern hotel complexes in Bad Meinberg posed significant challenges for the owners of older, smaller hotels. Consequently, many of these establishments went bankrupt, compelling the Dutch owners of one such hotel to shut down. The hotel comprises two buildings: one remains relatively clean, while the other is entirely engulfed by moss, with plants beginning to grow inside. Although it may not have been abandoned for long, water damage has accelerated its deterioration.

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.
