Inside Soviet Asylum T

Author CmdrCord - Last updated: 26.09.2010

On our last trip through eastern Germany, this one was the grand finale. As it was the second location that day, and we had to get back to Hannover in the evening, we were in quite a hurry, but I’m sure we will go there again. The site is massive, I think one could easily spend a whole day there.

Asylum “T” was built in the early 20th century as state lunatic asylum of Brandenburg. It was also used as military hospital during both world wars; and after 1945 parts of it were occupied by the Soviets.
Today, there is still an active psychiatric hospital in the neighbourhood, but the former soviet buildings are left to decay.

In the main building, the upper floors were basically inaccessible, because the roof collapsed in some parts. But in the ground floor, there was this really beautiful mural. One of the best soviet murals I’ve seen so far

Some relics of the past occupants were still there, like this nice retro helmet mile” />

Most buildings were carefully boarded up, so we had to skip them due to lack of time to find an entrance.
But some were accessible, among them this neat laundry service:

… well at least we thought that it was only a laundry, but when we went upstairs, there was this huuuge theatre

Looking at these pictures and especially the ceiling now, I think I should have taken along the helmet for protection

Next to the theatre there was this funky russian disco… as you know, the russians like a good party, and this was probably the place to be for lunatic party animals

That’s it for now, but I’m sure I will re-visit the asylum one day, I think there is a lot more to see

Very nice photos Cmdr, and great to see the place in summer. I´ve been two times so far, but only in winter. The mural has further deteriorated since your visit 🙁
Oh, and the theatre and disco is in the kitchen building, not the laundry.
When you go again, don´t miss the jail building!

So I wanted to share a story about this weekends exploration of Trenton Psychiatric aka The NJ Lunatic Asylum. It was by far the wildest exploration of my life.

Ah, Poland in springtime, 4 inches of snow on the ground, temperatures just managing to creep above freezing.

This location is pretty famous here in the states for being haunted. I’m pretty skeptical about that type of thing. I did pay for a photo tour of this place. There were about 12 of us and I rarely ran into anyone the entire time I was here.
