My son and I visited this urbex location, an abandoned farm in my place of birth, in march 2015.
Huize Rust en Vreugde was built in baroque style in 1913 as a copy of the 18th century hunting lodge of the kings of Denmark. That hunting lodge was called Hermitage Klampenborg.
Due to the presence of many factories, port warehouses, storage tanks and cranes Queen Wilhelmina Harbour is a bustling area. Many old warehouses disappeared and they made room for storage tanks for the current industry.
And now for something completely different: a tractor graveyard, filled with stuff from the 50’s and 60’s.
“A straw-cardboard wage: too much to die, but not enough to live.”
This decayed farm was found while we just had explored a huge abandoned paperfactory….but also small things can be great!
‘Rich farmers built huge houses with large estates, while the workers had to bite on a piece of wood.’
The Augustinian Monastery in Witmarsum dates from the early twentieth century and served as a residential building for the monks until 1992. I visited this great urbex location nearby my hometown with my son Twan. A great exploration!
