In summer 2015 my family and I made a short trip to Mecklenburg Vorpommern in north-eastern Germany. Here on eBay and Immo Scout many old castles are offered for under a 1/4 million Euros.
Once a castle becomes abandoned a 24 hours security service is essential to keep vandalizing village-youths, Urbex-photographers and robbers out of the edifices. At least the buildings have to secured with bricks completely.
The following pictures are showing traces of burglary, arson, illegal party and housing occupation in three buildings in Mecklenburg Vorpommern.
