    Firstly, thanks for making your way through the first report and bothering to pop along to the second - much appreciated

    So, it's the second day of my explore here, although there has been a day between the two. Again, awkward train times leave me with only 2 hours on site, but anything is better than nothing...

    I had already found an access to the female pavilion, so decided to return to get some better shots. The site was much busier, what with it being a pleasant day and a public holiday. I counted at least 12 other explorers, as well as a group doing a professional looking fashion shoot. It was, in fact, so busy I had the unusual situation of queuing to clamber through a broken window. Anyway, I got a few more shots here...



    Can't do this place without corridor shots






    Hundreds of specimin bottles abandoned



    I then decided on a closer look at the surgery building, although access had seemed barred before. I spent a long time painstakingly checking boards and seeing if i could fit in cellar windows, only to find that as I moved to the far side of the building, the main doors had been broken down. I took the opportunity and wandered in, being very grateful for my new dust mask and head torch, especially as I ventured down to the cellars.



    Rather attractive roof




    More Soviet script




    Where the famous surgery light once hung










    There were loads of piles of glass everywhere




    A view up the lift shaft


    Loads of stuff dumped in the cellars


    This translates as 'heavy x-ray material in box'


    Lovely asbestos cladding on these pipes...





    I spent rather longer in the surgery than I had planned, however it is very large and very interesting. As I once again made my way towards the station, I noticed the laboratory had also been freshly opened up. I couldn't resist dropping in for a few quick shots...



    Trespass






    Apologies for the bad lighting in this one...






    All in all, a very good explore, just rather too short. A revisit is without doubt in order, hopefully over summer/autumn if I can sort things out...

    Again, thanks all for looking, I hope you've enjoyed it

    -RR

    Thanks You really do need a whole weekend. I basically only managed to cover a quarter of the site, and not overly thoroughly. Good news is though, there's a hotel in one of the renovated buildings - I'll be using that next time

    Thanks Who knows, it looked like someone had been making a cursory attempt to clear the broken glass around the glass-walled surgery rooms, but that would be a pretty thankless task tbh

    Great pity the operating theatre lamp has gone now. Apparently it was there right up to last year.

    Indeed, very sad to see that it's gone, it was a great piece

    A hotel you say? Is that up in the working hospital quarter? I didn't spot it but then I was sort of trying to close my mouth the entire time I was up that end, it's just so damned "purdy"!!!

    Having said that we enjoyed the wonderful feeling of anticipation travelling in on the train from the centre of Berlin every morning!

    As to your assumptions that they are "cleaning up", yup... there's loads of evidence all over the shop of them starting to do stuff bpoth inside and outside the buildings. We found the Badehaus had been extensively swept through downstairs though not upstairs where it was still rather messy, and there was a cement mixer inside the foyer. And we got disturbed inside the male pavilion by someone coming in with the keys through the main entrance. It seemed to be architects or engineers. Now add to that the amount of rampant deforesting that's been done around that building and it all points to work beginning. Oh, plus they're pulling the roof tiles off the buildings in the south west quadrant and stacking them...

    I fear the days of easy access are numbered...
