Abandoned doctors house

 photo 7_zpsd54e8f4b.jpg

Photographer Daniel Marbaix captured these images (and more) of an abandoned house that once belonged to a doctor and his family in Germany. I could stare at these images for ages, can you imagine exploring this mansion in person? I love finding forgotten places, this one is a real gem.

I usually don't go through the post like that. Don't know why, I'm just not intrigued by them. Loved yours and the photos are amazing! :)

Solanah,
What a wonderful post (yes, there is somethign ghastly and grim about the abandoned home, but it's strangely attractive to look at)

That last room is amazing. I wonder why it's so empty and it's driving me bananas...

Beautiful space, what a wonderful find! I wonder how you can come across the places where they're still intact but also falling apart at the same time... Thanks for the post! Sarah XXX

These images jump out and grip one's attention, imagination and even soul. So many details, silent stories, and unseen ghosts of memories past lurk between each item, speck of dust, and greying cobweb. They are powerful and stunning. Thank you so much for sharing Mr. Marbaix's fantastic photos.

♥ Jessica

It must have been the prettiest place on the wordl in the past. I'd love to explore that house and find lots of treasures everywhere!

I am sure that house was really gorgeous back when the doctor and his family lived there. You can see from the pictures that it had to be *_* And also now it has a special charm...I also love to explore abandoned places and discover a piece of "history" :)

Jessica said...

Wow, these photos are stunning I could look at them all day, truly beautiful.

These photos are so beautiful and eerie at the same time, especially the last one! I can't believe they still have their coats hanging up on the wall xx

I'm just the opposite as MsNotWeirdAtAll. I absolutely LOVE this post. Seeing these pictures brings up many questions - why did they leave? why did they leave so many of there belongings behind? etc etc etc
As a great lover of books the library picture made me especially sad.
Try checking out forgottendetroit.com , they have pictures of many beautiful buildings that have fallen into disrepair.

Whoa. So strange, spooky, and sad. The images are beautiful...it really makes me want to know what happened to the people who lived here. And it seems nuts that it's been semi-preserved like this since the 1960s!

There's something so compelling about empty homes. I saw a website that has lots of photos like this, but I can't remember what it was called. I found it via the blog House Crazy. I also bought a photo by a guy named Jason Rydquist, who takes photos of abandoned houses from Montana to Oregon. I love this stuff!

Wow this is so cool but heartbreaking. It makes me wonder what happened that they left all of their belongings behind.

Renee said...

That is amazing. So many questions and stories there. Amazing that so many things are still there yet the house is beginning to deteroriate. Especially interesting to me since I am in the middle of reading a book by a reporter in Germany in 1930-40s Shirer's Berlin Diary.

Olivia said...

Whenever I see photos of places like this, I can't help but wonder how they have remained relatively untouched for so long--was it a house that had been paid off and forgotten by a family? Or did that family let it sit intentionally for so long?

A gem indeed.... I love urban exploring to the teeth... it saddens me to day there isn't much urbexing to do in the Netherlands. But Germany... ain't that far away ;)

What treasures to be found! I love all the books. :)
