Resident Evil

well, the evil has left the former „Heeresreitschule“ (army riding school), a military barracks in Prussia. A magnificent structure, works started in 1937 and the buildings were finished just in time for the upcoming World War. The Wehrmacht started a major program for building new barracks starting 1935, and it is really a pity, that these often wellplanned, functional and sometimes architectural sophisticated buildings were part of that stupid war machine… just wasted resources

After the war, the barracks were occupied by the soviets, who left in 1992. Since then they lay abandoned, but a huge reconstruction in on the way…

The Atmosphere is amazing, so even Hollywood made use of it and the barracks were part of the scenery in films like Resident Evil,  Enemy at the Gates and Inglourious Basterds.
