Guided tour to Lost Places in the town of Neustrelitz
Lost Places, the “abandoned places” have a special attraction. The first to feel such a widespread fascination were the romantics 200 years ago, who saw the castle ruins of the Middle Ages and the ruins of antiquity not just as old heaps of stones, as cheap building material.
Forgotten and decayed: places in an undefined intermediate state
Lost places are something special
Today, Lost Places are younger buildings and areas that have fallen into disrepair due to recent history. Experience the fascination and the atmosphere that emanates from these places in an “undefined intermediate state”. Whether it’s traditional construction dating back to the 1930s, industrial construction or failed post-reunification projects – they all have something special about them. Especially in East Germany, abandoned buildings tell the story of the 20th century.
Find out where these places are, what their history is, what the current status is and where developments can be expected in the near future. But above all, go on a journey of discovery and feel the attraction of Lost Places.
They still exist in Neustrelitz, although they are becoming fewer every year. In the middle of the city center, in the districts and also on the outskirts of the city area. As a tour or combined with the bike or car to reach the places outside the city center.
urban exploring light
Book my tour for an “urban exploring light”. This is the comfortable way of “urban exploring” (urbex for short), i.e. exploring urban spaces. There is often a certain danger involved, as you enter buildings that are not 100% secure.
As part of the tour offered here, you will be completely safe and will not commit any crime. We visit places where we look at buildings from the street and if you like we also go to one or the other courtyard that has been abandoned for years to get a closer look. We stay within a “bourgeois framework” that respects fences and gates, but also goes where the owner shows no real interest. There are also completely free places where you can directly experience relics of the past.
