Vandalized Castles - Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania 2015


In summer 2015 my family and me made a short trip to Mecklenburg Vorpommern in the north-east of Germany. Here on Ebay and Immo Scout many old castles can be bought for around 250.000-1.000.000 €.

Once a castle becomes abandoned protection by a 24-hours-security-service is essential to keep vandalizing village-youths, annoying lost place photographers, thieves and other burglars away from the edifices. Or at least the windows and doors should be secured with bricks entirely.

The following pictures show traces of burglary, arson, illegal partying and house occupation taking place in four different castles.
