the red pallet

I found this abandoned place in Karlsruhe at the “Alter Schlachthof” area. It’s the former location of an OPEL car dealer and before that it was the pig market hall of a slaughterhouse. Don’t know what it will be used for in the future.

Of course I went inside the building! Believe me, that was so disgusting! I think a few hundred doves live in there which all took off went I entered the buidling. I could stay inside because of the dust they raised. And the ground was covered with crap and dead doves. Uaaargh!!!

Update 2017: Today this building is a startup center called “Perfekt Futur”. Learn more here:
