Harzer Kinder- und Jugendpsychiatrie


The ‘Harzer Kinder- und Jugendpsychiatrie’ is an old hospital in Großörner, a small village in the Harz. It was built in 1939 and demolished in 2008 after six years of abandonment.

This disused hospital was a children metal health ward in DDR-times. It was built in the late 1930s. The hospital moved in 2002 to the new ‘Klinikum Mansfelder Land’ in Hettstedt. For this reason the site was abandoned.

The building was hit hard by more than ten years of abandonment. Therefore plans to reconvert or to save the buildings were never made. I took these photos of the ‘Harzer Kinder- und Jugendpsychiatrie’ in 2014. Eventually the site was demolished in 2008. Check this link for more reports of abandoned hospitals.
