Calling all daredevils!
Explore some spooky abandoned spots in Germany that’ll give you chills.
Forget movie scares; these real places are terrifying.
The Weilheim chapel, deep in the forest, was once pretty but is now infamous as a haunted spot.
There are stories of witches doing dark rituals there, and people who go looking often get lost.
Some say it’s just superstition, but during the 1632-1634 plague, locals prayed in the chapel and miraculously, no one near the church got sick. So it got called the Plague Chapel.
Ghost towns aren’t just in movies; they’re in Germany too.
Take the Wustrow peninsula on the Baltic Sea, for example. There’s a “no trespassing” fence at the end of the road, and old military buildings are crumbling.
Nature is taking over, making it eerie. Visitors can only explore by horse-drawn carriage because it’s too risky to walk due to hidden holes.
Heilstätten-Klinikin Beelitz, near Potsdam, has a rich history since it was built in 1930.
It was once a lung hospital, then a military hospital during both world wars, and later housed the Red Army until 1994.
Now abandoned, it’s a mix of nature and architecture, creating a spooky but captivating atmosphere.
