Beelitz-Heilstätten

Since a couple of years, Beelitz-Heilstätten is not a insider´s tip but it is a great destination for day-trippers. Yesterday we went to Beelitz for the second time. 3 years ago, almost nobody was outside in the abandoned buildings. The level of destruction was high but we could go into almost every building. Today, of course it is very crowded and you have to take a guided tour to enter the buildings (www.go2know.de). We choose the tour through the old surgery station and it was quite interesting. Our guide told us not only the facts about the old building but also some personal stories from people he met who survived the second world war in the basement of the surgery station. It was quite impressing. After the tour we enjoyed the new "Baumkronenpfad" 20 meters above the ground and had a classical "Erbsensuppe" from a field kitchen...
