FDGB Ferienheim Zum Bären

Built: 1905

Abandoned: 1995

Visited: 2016


This hotel was build in the early 1900s. In 1950 it was owned by the Free German Trade Union Federation, or in German Freier Deutscher Gewerkschaftsbund (FDGB). During 1986, 98% of all workers and employees were organized in the FDGB, which had 9.6 million members. Following the East German system, the FDGB was in charge of ideological control and conformity in companies, as well as social tasks such as hospital visits, presenting awards, giving gifts on special anniversaries, even extending as far as organizing health spas and the hard-to-get holiday bookings. The FDGB’s own holiday service was responsible for the latter.

After the fall of the iron curtain the building was put up for sale. It is abandoned al these years.
