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!
Hotel Jadran was socialist Yugoslavia’s first hotel. When the construction of the hotel finished in 1950, most observers agreed that it was the most beautiful on the coast, situated along a three kilometer stretch of pebble beach on the Makarska Riviera in the tiny town of Tucepi, and surrounded in pines. This was my first urban exploration in a foreign country.
This abandoned structure in Krvavica was a Children’s Health Resort from 1964 until the end of the 80’s. Many of the children who stayed at the seaside resort by the Makarska Riviera suffered from asthma or so-called ‘weak lungs’.
The castle domain Nottebohm comprises an area of over 58 hectares, within the center an abandoned villa, built in 1908-1909 by the family Nottebohm from Antwerp. Château Nottebohm served as a country retreat for the family and was regularly inhabited until 1943.
This abandoned castle with chapel was founded in 1876 by the wealthy Antwerp shipowner Frans Huger. It is located in a park with century-old beech and chestnut trees. Today nothing remains of the beautiful place that nineteenth-century Goorhof was under the previous owners.

De bouw ging van start omstreeks 1900 en het sanatorium opende zijn deuren in 1903. Ondanks dat het gebouw reeds enkele jaren leegstaat is het nog steeds in wonderbaarlijk goede staat. Binnen is het nagenoeg leeg, maar er is slechts een minimum aan vandalisme en graffiti
