This location was one of the main reasons for our 3rd trip. It was one of the biggest sites along the border and held up in service during the cold war. Some parts (esp. the kitchen) has been removed for showing them in museums like Hackenberg.
Finding the entrance was not so easy, because we parked the car downtown in the village not to catch someones eyes on our plan. Some other urbexers drove through the forest and got cought up by the police. So ewen if you have got a 4WD-car this is not a good idea...
After taking the stairs to go into the underground we enjoyed a lot of new impressions
The most interesting area was the power plant. Some of the old diesel engines were still in good condition. Bringing some new oil, fresh diesel and compressed air (for the starter) and you can fire up the engines (we even thought...).
At this trip even one of my best photos arised.
This one was really contingency. We walked through the switchboard plant and I played a little bit with my camera, took the photo, checked it on the LCD and just thought "well...looks a little bit nice". Later at the campside I made a backup of the storage card and looked at this picture on the notebook screen. All the effort was it worth!
