Hotel Kurpark


The hotel in better days

This is ‘Hotel Kurpark’ an old abandoned hotel in a small German spa village Bad Meinberg. This village has for many years been one of the most famous spa resorts with medicinal springs in Germany.

The 6,25 ha big historic spa park was created around 1770 as a baroque complex. The park was built around a gas spring or mofette. which had mistakenly been mistaken for a spring of water. The originally strictly geometrically designed park has undergone numerous transformations over the years.

Many hotels and pensions were built around the park. In 2000 two huge modern complexes were built here, making life difficult for the older hotel owners. Several of them went bankrupt and were forced to close its doors.

In 2018 I made these photos of the abandoned Hotel Kurpark.
