Demolition of the Perlmooser Tower (Austria)

Author PANZERWOLF - Last updated: 01.08.2013

i guess some of my fellow austrians already know that the perlmooser cement factory (which has been covered in other posts) is being torn down since last year….. a few weeks ago i got inside news from a friend, that the large tower will be blasted by the military to speed up the process, so we planned a picnic to watch the event

1. what it looked like in winter 2011

2. our vantage point on the opposite cliff of the valley

3. the camp – you can see my camera and the Meade ETX spotting scope to spy on the preparations more closely

:D

4. the view

Image

5. most of the buildings have already been torn down by excavators

Image

6. the target (note the slanted cutouts to weaken the structure)

Image

7. the explosives (over 700 separate charges according to official sources!)

Image

8. wait for it …

Image

9. kaboom!

10. the white tree-like thingies are paddling pools filled with water, which are detonated to catch some of the dust

needless to say, it’s a great loss for urbexing in austria, especially when you’re from the area and have spent lots of time there …
