Kulturhaus am Kristallsee

THE ABANDONED THEATER IN GERMANY


This ‘Kulturhaus am Kristallsee’ was built from 1951 to 1954. The building was part of a sanatorium in an old mining village, also famous for its thermal spring.

But it took until after the Second World War when Uranium mining started in this German village. Mining was an unhealthy job. Obviously there was a need for the medical care of the miners. That is why in 1954 the sanatorium was opened. It was built with a capacity of about 100 beds. Also it had a large theater hall, a lobby, restaurant, rooms for sports activities and a winter garden.

In the early 1990s, just after ‘Die Wende’ the mines closed. The building became part of a bigger cure and health resort. The building was used as ‘Bettenhaus’ and ‘Kulturhaus’. After 10 years the health resort was sold to a new owner. The Kulturhaus has been out of use ever since. These photos of Kulturhaus am Kristallsee were taken in 2016.
