Greiz. This small town is located in the german province of Thuringia (Thüringen).

One of many derelict buildings in town

I'd say about a third of them.

The car park in front of the town hall.




The historical bits

Once for textile manufacturing

now for not being used

The office

The out of place car I got lent

to get there

Backyard of the hotel

My favourite

A birdie told me in the days of the German Democratic Republic this building was used as a kindergarten.

On previous visits I took the steps that are now rubble.

Now for the reclamation yard - had no time for a rummage though, perhaps next time

Sandmännchen loved by infants on both sides of the iron curtain

by the way: nothing to do with Logan's Run nor Santa
