Ferme st Valentine

Visited this crumbling farm a few months ago. Parts of it al already collapsed and very dangerous. How that roof is still standing up on only two rotten beams is a small miracle, and that won’t last long. Inside you could trace fallen roof parts all the way into the cellar…. Other parts of this…

Pritzner fac

In the middle of a large Belgian city, this old college is an unexpected thing to find. Guarded by a 5 metre high gate and a second 2 meter high gate, this location can be quite difficult to enter. Even the main building itself was complete sealed-off. So I went in thru a coal dump…

Return of the King

Not a lot of photo’s of this castle, just as I started taking pictures, the owner was shouting from outside… So I had to find a way to escape. He never saw me 😉   More images can be seen here: https://www.arnoraps.be/album/return-of-the-king/

The Chapel

This chapel was a protestant church in a part of Germany that is now Poland. After the war this chapel was left to rot, probably because it was protestant (and polish are mostly catholics) and Poland had a communist government.

Fort Vaux, Verdun

Fort Vaux, Verdun. May 7th, 2017 A 100 years after the armistice, and it’s still very impressive to visit. Not only this fort, but also the surrounding lands.

Rusty Dusty

This was huuuuuge. Walked like 15 km only to see everything in this factory. Mostly empty, but did find some nice photo-ops. Special metal wires were made here.   https://www.arnoraps.be/album/rusty-dusty/


A few weeks ago Anya asked if I would like to visit this location. This pig slaughterhouse was impressive. It did make me think for a moment seeing the scale of this, but I still like some meat though. Some people told me this was only a small factory, so there are even bigger slaughterhouses active.…

Mr Benz

Visited this abandoned factory a few years ago. This has been abandoned for more than 60 years. Now part of the roof is coming down. They used to make tiles and cinema chairs, and I suspect that the owner lived here too. The name of the location comes from the old Mercedes that used to be…

Moerputten bridge

The Moerputten bridge is a railway bridge from the former “Halve Zolen” train line, running between Den Bosch and Lage Zwaluwe. This bridge is located in a swamp area and is converted into a bike path.
