THE ABANDONED HOTEL IN GERMANY
This is an abandoned hotel en children’s camp named ‘Ferienheim Botanik’. During DDR-times it was owned by the ‘Cosaplast’ company, later it was used as a pension until its closure in 2010.
When this hotel was built, the official name of the hotel in Nassau was ‘Ferienheim des Cosaplast Coswig’. Nassau is a small village near Dresden, and located in the Ore Mountains. It is part of the municipality Frauenstein.
During DDR-times the hotel was owned by the ‘Cosaplast’ factory in Coswig, they used it as a family hotel for its employees. After the fall of the Iron Curtain, it was opened again as ‘Pension Alte Molkerei’. In general, the hotel was a popular destination for nature lovers in the 1970s and 1980s. But eventually business went bad and the hotel was abandoned.
As can be seen, water damage gave nature the change to grow inside. These photos of ‘Ferienheim Botanik’ were taken in 2016 during my German road trip. Follow this link for more abandoned hotels.
