Zombie Hospital_psychorooms – Germany

Zombie Hospital_psychorooms – Germany
(2016)
——————————————————————–

The Kinderkrankenhaus’ story begins in March 1908, when it was decided to build Prussia’s first municipal children’s hospital to help combat rising infant mortality rates at the time.
Construction got underway in June 1909, overseen by the prominent architect Carl James Bühring. He built a load of stuff in Berlin and then later in Leipzig.
On July 8, 1911, the hospital was inaugurated amid great fanfare on what was then-called Kniprodeallee. It had a little park for therapeutic purposes and – best of all – milk production facilities, with a cowshed, dairy and everything needed for milk storage and transportation.
Not only was the hospital considered one of the best of its kind anywhere, but it hosted the Third International Congress for the Study and Prevention of Infant Mortality from September 9-15 that same year.
Of course, more buildings were added down the years, as can be discerned from their varying and contrasting styles, but the cows’ facilities were done away with in 1920. Well, they catered instead to the city.
Later, in 1965, they became part of a dairy farm in nearby Heinersdorf. I presume they weren’t using the same cows or the milk must have been fairly sour.
The hospital was again expanded with a new wing in October 1987, but the whole thing was cruelly shut down after 85½ years of service to Berlin’s newest arrivals on January 1, 1997.
It’s been lying idle ever since, punished repeatedly by weather and brainless zombies who insist on burning it. Bruised, battered and burnt, it pines for the days it used to welcome brand new little people into the world and care for bigger little people who suffered misfortunes.
But no, its lifeblood is denied and now the property speculator zombies are circling. It’s the hospital that ran out of patients.

The only thing that’s left at the Güterbahnhof Pankow  thought of times that were..Even most of the tracks are gone, taken away lest the carriages that once trundled through feel like trundling through again. The absence of people and their repairs let the place be deserted and crumbled and it time.

Güterbahnhof Pankow - Berlin - Germany (12 van 76) Güterbahnhof Pankow - Berlin - Germany (46 van 76) Güterbahnhof Pankow - Berlin - Germany (48 van 76)Now it’s forgotten. The train turntable doesn’t spin anymore and the control cabin’s in a badstate. Too many parties – even the DJ has left.

Güterbahnhof Pankow - Berlin - Germany (61 van 76) Güterbahnhof Pankow - Berlin - Germany (43 van 76) Güterbahnhof Pankow - Berlin - Germany (44 van 76)Blackened beams attest to a hellish retirement, the smell of smoke still lingers, scattered sheets of paper flutter around the office, names and addresses for all to see (so much for Germany’s paranoia with privacy law), and the clock on the administration building only tells the time twice a day.

Güterbahnhof Pankow - Berlin - Germany (8 van 76) Güterbahnhof Pankow - Berlin - Germany (50 van 76) Güterbahnhof Pankow - Berlin - Germany (74 van 76) It used to be so different. The railroad yard began operations in 1893 or 1904 (depending on your source) and was only closed down (for reasons I have so far been unable to determine) in 1997. At its peak, it could handle up to 1,800 freight cars a day. One thousand 800 Güterwagen a day!

But they ripped out the rail tracks and knocked down a few buildings by 2007. Then in 2009, the whole 40 hectare site, including the land going down as far as S-Bahnhof Pankow, was snapped up by developer Kurt Krieger. He wants to invest €350 million to build a 30,000 square meter shopping center and a 40,000 square meter furniture shop (à la Ikea), while planting 1,370 new trees and creating a five hectare park.

Krieger reportedly wants to invest €5 million to restore it for cultural use.
“Maybe we’ll turn it into the opera of Pankow,” he joked in his broad Berliner dialect, according to Tagesspiegel. Pankow and opera are a strange mix, to say the least.

For now Güterbahnhof Pankow is at the end of the line. But development work could start as soon as next year. Seems it won’t be long before it goes off on a new track.
