A toilet group was hung with all kinds of notices; "stand closer to urinal, spatter danger", "flush toilet longer", "do not spatter on toilet seat" etcetera. Also some funny poetry.
"Auf diesem Scheisshaus sitzt ein
Geist der jedem der zu lange scheisst
von unten in die Eier beist"
Followed in a different handwriting by
"Ich habe 2 Stunden hier geschissen
und er hat mich nicht gebissen"

In the women toilet this poetry was of course completely absent.


"Please flush long time. Thank you."
The big hall can be divided into two parts, a part with a flat roof and a part with a round roof. Along the far wall of the round roof part were more rooms, toilets, a small workshop. Some plastic was hanging from the roof, maybe to guide leaking water to the sides.

Barely visible, the roof construction

Many wheels to turn.

This big wheel is for the fire extinguishing system.
A sliding door near a locked exit was blocked by pieces of wood. These were easily removed and I followed the staircase up. This small upper floor was halfway filled with empty racks and had a nasty big hole in the floor.

The roof was leaking in many places. The ceiling is obviously not water resistant.
Going back to the entrance of the big hall I climbed up the spiral staircase mentioned earlier. Here was the air-conditioning equipment and behind that a hide out for local youth or so it seemed. They had gathered chairs, a table and some pictures from the offices below to make it more cozy. A skylight and lots of candles provided light.

Some place to hang out.
I looked for a way out on the far side of the big hall, because I didn't want to walk all the way back and because that way I would have to cross that open part between buildings in full view of the road in front of the factory. I did a lot of searching but the only possible way was through a broken window which I decided was too dangerous because of all the glass fragments still hanging in the window frame. So back I went, through the big hall, the small hall, the first, graffitied hall and outside where I had started.

View through a broken window. This is where I wanted to go.
