I found this abandoned place called “Schweinemarkthalle” 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 pigeons live in there which all took off went I entered the building. I couldn’t stay inside because of the dust they raised. And the ground was covered with crap and dead pigeons. Uaaargh!!!

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