Prora-0425 Hammy hiker

Mein Vater war ein Wandersmann


I think this was possibly the most surreal of the exhibits in Prora - The Colossus of Prora, Rügen, is a pretty surreal experience altogether. I am still not entirely sure why this sample of Tyrolean taxidermy was on show, poor little beggar!


Built 1936 and 1939 as a 20,000-bed holiday resort for the KdF (strength through joy) movement, the complex of 8 massive blocks stretching almost 5 kilometers along the coast was never used as such, and it has had a chequered history since.
