May 2013, visited with Larzz

As we already scouted this location a few months ago, our urbex weekend was the ideal opportunity to finally visit it. We entered via the same way we went in last time and soon were struck speechless once more.
This site hasn’t been abandoned for very long and lights are still on everywhere. The neighboring factory makes so much noise it makes it look as if the site is still alive. There’s about two hours of daylight left so we have to move fast. Snapping pics as we go. Since we spotted a police helicopter circling the area while moving between locations, we keep our guard.
