Fort de Plappeville

Author AL1ST - Last updated: 09.01.2017

Hello, this is my first report. I’ve been to this place just twice during daytime and +/- 5 times during night time. This complex is huge and I couldn’t go through every part even in 3 hours ( mainly because it was getting dark and rainy pretty quick).

The photos are raw, no editing, so sorry if they are bad quality or something you are not used to see, but it’s my first photo report as I usually don’t take photos.

If you are interested in the history of this place, you can read more on wikipedia.

To begin with, you have to walk through the forest in order to get to one of the main gates. As you can clearly see, there is no space to get through the bars and the gate is chained up and locked. But on the right side of it, when you walk a little back in the bushes, there is a whole part of the gate missing so you can enter the road to get to the main gate.

Once you’ve passed the gate on the left hand side you can see part of the fortification.

Image


Image

There is a road leading to the main gate. As you can see, the main gate is welded up with iron plates and chained up so nobody can enter through there. Last year, there were no plates, so you could get in through some missing bars in the gate, when i went back a couple of months ago, we had to find another way in because of those plates.

Once you manage to get in, there is a bridge that lead up to the fort itself.

Image

You enter the domain on the left and as you can clearly see, it is huge. You can’t see the parts that are offside the main square.

Image


Image

On the left of the domain, in the back, there are old storage rooms.

Image


Image

On the right side of the domain there is a generator room, it still smelled like gasoline.

Not far away from the generator room there was another complex, don’t ask me what it was used for, but it was the cleanest.

To enter the main domain, there are a couple of iron bridge.

Here a some shots from the inside, as you can see, there is not much light coming in, some rooms are in really bad shape (burned) and there are things hanging from the ceiling.

Come to Poznan next time, we have lots of objekts”
We went to Poznan, spent 8 hours there then got bundled into various 4×4′s and driven north. There were moments during the road trip I was reminded of the opening scenes of Hostel and was certain at any moment we were going to be killed for our cash and cameras

This was a late addition to our list of locations, and when we explored the place in moonlight… well we didn’t hope for much, but as sunrise came we were pretty surprised!
