I am not exactly what you would call an urban explorer, but I loved it when I got the chance to go around old buildings.
One time, I worked for a company that operated out of a building that was constructed in the 1920s and there were floors where you could almost tell things hadn’t been touched in decades.
Hell, there was one floor that was only occupied by two people and in one of the rooms there was an area code map that had to have been thirty years out of date by that point.
Two men in Germany were out exploring the fields when they found two pipes sticking up from the ground in the middle of nowhere.
What they discovered is nothing short of amazing. This is one of our favorites stories of urban exploration. Their story is below and what they found is simply fascinating:
After finding the pipes in the field, locating the entrance wasn’t too hard.
This is the entrance, a hundred meters or so from the periscopes, and surrounded by coniferous trees. It was covered with a wooden lid, which was easy to remove by using a crowbar.
The iron door you can see in the picture would swing back in but the lock was broken, so they couldn’t get trapped inside.
What you can see here is what you would see for the next few minutes – nothing but endless, hospital like hallways. They said that the acoustics were, in a word, haunting.
A pipe and a plastic bag on the floor, presumed from a local supermarket.
Hallways like this occurred several times. They decided to keep going straight in order to avoid getting lost. The holes in the wall on the right appeared to be punched with a hammer.
This is what you see when you turn left at the intersection seen above. The narrow hole in the floor was filled with dirty water, nothing to see there.
