    In the heart of Berlin, the Spreepark, the biggest amusement park in the former GDR, bought by a mafia fairground, was abandoned in 2002. The funeral family, still the owner, organizes tours on weekend where we walk between an overturned T. Rex, near a decapitated diplodocus and a ferris wheel with rusty nacelles.

    Some remains are still recently discovered. Like this wall, unearthed at the beginning of 2018 by a local historian and which would be the original part of the Berlin Wall, erected in a hurry in the night of August 12 to 13, 1961. A week after being revealed in the press , the 80m of this wall were protected by a fence.

    Georg, 32, runs the blog Digital Cosmonaut, a reference on the Berlin urbex. For him, the historical attraction is stronger than the simple search for sensations.

    Georg does not reveal an address unless a place is already well known, such as here the old train station that served the factory and a whole residential complex built by the company Siemens in 1897. The split of the city during the Cold War forced the train line to close and the station has been abandoned for more than 30 years.

    For the most rigorous urbexers like Georg, very strict rules must be respected. Enter without any break-ins, do not take anything except photos and videos and leave nothing on the spot.

    On his blog, Georg shares photos of places he has discovered but never reveals the location, unlike another popular blog, Abandoned Berlin, run by an Irish photographer, which gives very comprehensive information on the locations, gives a rating of 10 to indicate the difficulty of access to the place and even how to celebrate.

    In each of his explorations, Georg was never worried by the authorities. He spends time inspecting the surroundings before entering a place. He is very careful not to show too much in the neighborhood - like here on the docks in the city center - sometimes ready to call security guards or the police.

    Georg has learned that in the heart of the Cité Foch, there is an abandoned swimming pool for more than 20 years. This city was built in 1957 for the French military - and their families - then responsible for the north of West Berlin, and whose streets have kept their French name.

    Easily accessible, the pool has not escaped vandalism. Georg does not try to get inside the building, completely barricaded and is content with some photos that have a documentary value for him. A hundred yards away, the former commercial complex of the French community has just been razed without being able to explore it.

    Georg is one of the purist urbexers. He regrets that sites full of history are degrading or looting through the passage of visitors with sensations and adrenaline. On the other hand, it has nothing against companies that organize visits to certain sites if it can help preserve them. "The trouble is that these companies are trying to sell you an experience that is prefabricated, which does not have much to do with the urbex."

    The former Tempelhof International Airport, in the heart of Berlin, which had allowed West Berlin to escape the Soviet blockade, is without a doubt one of the most successful examples of reconversion. Closed in 2007, it reopens 3 years later to the public as a huge urban park, larger than Central Park in New York.

    Every weekend, cyclists, skateboarders, musicians or picnic enthusiasts invest in the 6 km of slopes and the 386 hectares of tarmac at the former Tempelhof International Airport. True to their commitment to nature, the Berliners resisted the urban madness that threatened the site.
