Nature always wins .... In 1945 the Soviet Army appropriated Beelitz-Heilstätten, which became the largest Soviet military hospital outside the Soviet Union. Russian forces remained in Eastern Germany after the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the reunification of Germany until 1994. The so called «Alpenhaus» saw heavy fighting at the end of the second world war and burned after being bombed. Slowly nature is taking over.
Like many of the buildings in East Germany controlled by the Red Army, the sanatorium at Beelitz has stood empty since the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Germany. #baumkronenpfad#berlin#beelitzheilstätten#naturephotography#lostplaces#abandonedplaces
