Betreten Verboten (Trespassing forbiden) in b&w

Beelitz-Heilstäten Hospital is an abandoned ruin close to Berlin. Hitler was treated here. The movie "The Pianist" was shot here. The hospital remained a soviet military hospital until 1995, well beyond reunification. The area was unsecured until 2007 and become a place of visit for curious people. Now it has been partially secured and requires a bit of effort and trespassing to get in.
