Lier Psychiatric Hospital – second visit (NO)

One year after my first photo exploring trip to this abandoned institution for the insane, I was invited to join a couple of great guys for an explore and some photographing. On my last trip I used my Canon 400d with at cheap wobbly tripod. Those pictures can be seen in this blog post and black and white shots on Flickr. This time I brought along my Canon 5d m2 and my new Manfrotto tripod (bought for the Berlin trip). I have learned a lot more about photography this year, and together with better equipment I’m quite pleased with my new pictures. The ones here are not edited – look at this set for larger and more artistic shots.

Now back to the abandoned hospital. We spent four hours walking through tree buildings. Sad to see that vandals has destroyed the place even more. Can’t understand why some people always has the urge to destroy places like this. Apart from that the place has become even more popular among photographers so in many rooms furniture and objects was staged and ready to be shot. I have heard rumors about increased security around the buildings, but we didn’t encounter any problems.

So here is some new shots. For history and more information about the place, read my first post regarding this location.

Bedroom

Psychiatric ward

Photographed this machines last time as well. And they are still there with no damage. Amazing.

Room in the attic with bed, chair and hat rack. Lots of nice paint peeling.

No photo exploring trip without a corridor shot. :)

Window shot

Amazingly nice sofa standing on a room on the top floor

“Chair next to window” shot. Detail shot here.

Suitcase probably belonging to one of the patients that never left the place alive

Massage bench left behind

Strange (probably staged) room suitable for those who needs to pray.

Examination table and red chair

Green showers

The notorious motorized wheelchair standing at almost exact same place as last year.

Green chair and sturdy window

There were a lot of empty patient rooms. All with nice colored walls.

Kitchen somewhere on top floor

Decayed closets

Bed next to window in the ward

Chair standing on the loft

Some kind of Siemens machine moved outside in the rain. Labeled “Isotherm 514″.

  1. another set of excellent photos quick question when exploring these places have you ever had run into homeless persons or something paranormal maybe?

  2. hei!
    såvidt jeg husker var tannlegekontoret i enden av bygget nærmest porten (rullestolen)
    Vi trålet der med lommelykter på dag nr 3, og jeg erindrer svakt at det var det eneste bygget med full “kjelleretasje” i hele lengden.
    Det kom som en overraskelse på oss også, for vi trodde det ikke var mer, når en plutselig kunne gå inn ei dør til og en hel ny liten verden åpnet seg.

    Jeg er forøvrig mektig imponert over hvordan hver krik og krok i et sånt digert bygg er utnyttet.
    Mistet litt stedsansen når jeg skulle redigere bilder i fjor høst, så jeg lurer på hvordan det skal gå når en står i Beelitz om et par mnd!!! HVIS en finner det… :)

    • Nei nå er jeg nødt til å ta enda en tur for å se om jeg finner denne tannlege stolen. Har jo vært nedi kjelleren der selv men husker lette vel ikke grundig nok rundt. Håper den ikke er fjernet.

      Når du drar til Beelitz må du lete etter tannlegestolen der også. :) Står i en kjeller i et av husene.

      Bilde jeg tok av den her: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/norue/4520827081/
      + nederste bildet her viser rommet: http://uexplorer.wordpress.com/2010/06/07/beelitz/

      Beelitz er et fantastisk sted, men veldig utsatt for hærverk og det er trist. Har jo blitt et veldig populært reisemål for mange i senere år siden det er så lett å komme seg dit. Toget fra Berlin stopper midt i hele området.

  4. Hei. DU har vært på tur der oppe i dag for å se, men fant søren ikke rett bygning. Har du noen beskrivelse som kan gjøre det hele litt lettere og finne.. Aner ikke hvem av disse bygningene det er der oppe…

    • Det er flere tomme bygninger der oppe. Googler du finner du ganske mange kart folk har laget. De som ligger nærmest skogen og det borteste (mot øst) er ihvertfall forlatt. Gå inn på freak forum og så finner du noen tråder med mye beskrivelser. Skal ikke være så vanskelig å finne. :)
