Karl von Müller Kaserne

THE ABANDONED MILITARY SITE IN GERMANY


This is the ‘Karl von Müller Kaserne’ in Emden, a city in the north of Germany. The military site was built in 1911 and abandoned in 1997.

During the First World War, Karl von Müller was a captain of the German commerce raider, the light cruiser SMS Emden. This old abandoned military site was named after him. The site was used by the ‘ABC-Abwehrbataillon 110 der Bundeswehr’ a division specialized in protection against nuclear and biologic weapons. In the early days, just after the First World War, Emden was the base for the ‘Bataillon des Fuß-Artillerie Regiments Nr.2’, the ground troops of the German army.

In 1997, the Bundeswehr left the barracks completely. Since then, the terrain has been largely unused. Several plans of the city of Emden have been rejected. Since then, the listed buildings have been damaged heavily. These photos of the ‘Karl von Müller Kaserne’ were taken in 2011.
