Seeing a place so quickly, and thoroughly, abandoned will creep you out to your core.
Seeing a place so quickly, and thoroughly, abandoned will creep you out to your core.

Twenty years ago, the Pension Sachsenruh Hotel used to be a bustling ski resort in the Erzgebirge region of Saxony, Germany. Not only was the ski resort was shut down, but it seemed to be abandoned in the middle of its busy season. There are boots and skis strewn all over the floor, as if they were thrown down at the last minute. Seeing a place so quickly, and thoroughly, abandoned will creep you out to your core.

The photos are both haunting and romantic, a reminder that all things must come to an end.

  1. Hi,
    I am planning a trip to Germany. We will be there about 10 days. There’s a small town just outside Leipzig that we really want to visit, and from there we plan on heading down to Munich (eventually).

    Any suggestion from people who live there / travel there on the best route to take or places to stop at?

    Thanks!
    Wow Alwin, Prague looks just beautiful – thank you for that tip… looks like we have some thinking to do!

    Numberg looks interesting as well. I feel that we will definitely want to stop somewhere along the way, though its not too long, there are just so many things to see!!

  2. Does anyone know how Audi came to be called Audi?
    I’ve heard two different reasons, one that it came from the American slag I’m Audi (meaning I’m going/off) and the other that Audi is the Italian word for horse.
    It would be a great help if someone knew, as Ive been having a heated debate with friends about it!

    Thanks

  3. started his playing career in Albania, from a young age he was involved in football. He started his professional career with his local team KS Flamurtari Vlorë, who at the time were one of the best teams in Albania. He was at the Vlorë based club for three years from 1992–95, during his time there he was loaned out to SK Tirana in 1993 but returned soon after.After three years in Albanian football he decided it was time to broaden his horizon and so moved to Germany to play for Union Berlin. After spending three years at the Berlin club he had made over 57 appearances and scored a total of eight goals. He then moved to FC Erzgebirge Aue in 1997. In his two seasons there he made over 47 appearances and scored seven goals.the 2007–08 season he played 34 matches and scored seven goals, his goals and magnificant displays in his team jersey saved the club from relegation that same season.

  4. Could you tell me what they like about it?

    Although I have never been to Germany, there are certain aspects that I like very much. I’d be embarrassed to tell you because I am a kid at heart, but maybe your relatives are not, and maybe it would be fun to think about what makes
    Germany a pleasant place. A friend I met this summer really has not come back yet, and he has
    been back for six years.

    In case you would like to know, there is a very nice website: germandeli.com … it has all sorts of fun things like Advent calendars, cookies and chocolates for Christmas, pretty napkins and plates for holiday use, and magazines from Germany… there is one little rabbit character used on napkins… he is all dressed up in a big Santa hat and is so cute …. I find him far cuter than our stuff…. maybe the grass looks greener, but I still hear Leipzig and Bach, I think the Christkindlsmarkt a very nice idea …. why can’t we
    ruff up so much fun as they do? (USA

Please tell me if there is anything fun that will go on. And I enjoy snowboarding, so if there is an awesome ski resort, please tell me.
    I will be staying there around Jan, 2011.

  37. I live in a house that was a single family dwelling of about 6000 square feet. It, and hundreds of others, were built between 1880 and 1900. When my street, Mendelssohnallee is Googled, a picture of one of these mansions, a monster of more than 8000 square feet, is shown. Many areas of Dresden that were not firebombed in February, 1945, were built up in that 20 year period. My personal guess about the source of the prosperity of that time is a combination of porcelain manufacturing from Meissen, mining from the Erzgebirge Mountains, and relative political stability in the German government.

  40. Hi,
    I am planning a trip to Germany. We will be there about 10 days. There’s a small town just outside Leipzig that we really want to visit, and from there we plan on heading down to Munich (eventually).

    Any suggestion from people who live there / travel there on the best route to take or places to stop at?

    Thanks!
    Wow Alwin, Prague looks just beautiful – thank you for that tip… looks like we have some thinking to do!

    Numberg looks interesting as well. I feel that we will definitely want to stop somewhere along the way, though its not too long, there are just so many things to see!!

    I’ve heard two different reasons, one that it came from the American slag I’m Audi (meaning I’m going/off) and the other that Audi is the Italian word for horse.
    It would be a great help if someone knew, as Ive been having a heated debate with friends about it!
