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. In this region old castles were available on ebay and immoscout for a small cost of 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 windows and doors should be secured with bricks entirely.

The following pictures show traces of burglary, arson, illegal partying and illegal house occupation in four castles in Mecklenburg Vorpommern with different states of decay.
