We happend to came up on some mysterious and strange place when we were out driving here in mecklenburg-vorpommen. Germany is full of abandoned, spooky places and buildings, but this one seemed extra strange.
A small road leads out on the island Wustrow in Rerik, east Germany. Iron fences and guards with weapons protecting the area, hidden cameras and warning signs about explosives. Not sure what they are protecting we asked around, searched the internet and we don't know what to believe.
It used to be a military area, first for The German army and then taken over by the Russians. The fences has been there since at least the early 1930s. Hitler was here and also Mussolini already in 1937.
Strangly the island was kept isolated even after the Russians left DDR 1992-93 after the Berlin wall fell.
But what happened after they left? Why is it still a prohibited area? There are many theories, some are more interesting than others...
Is this place :
A hidden abandoned town ?
An base like the area 51 in the Us ?
An secret military base ?
Or do the locals know something we dont know yet and they are talking about stranges stories about experiments on humans gone wrong...
And they say, dont go there the place is cursed.
We went there,
And yes, we entered the zone and came by the guards and the electric fences and all mines & explosives.....
