Cardboard factory Inden

The old town of Inden, once stated as the most beautiful town of the region, doesn't exist any more. Soon even the soil it was build on will be dug away to reach the lignite (Braunkohl) underneath.
At the moment only the old cardboard factory still stands, the result of 10 years of negotiation between the factory management and Rheinbraun (the mining company), who agreed to move the edge of the projected mine 400 metres northward. However no agreement could be reached over financial compensation and the factory closed down in 2002, after almost two and a half century of paper production.

Walking along remnants of the old railwayline from Hochneukirch.


Town centre, the bridge spanning the dry riverbed of the diverted river Inde. In the background the powerplant where the mined lignite is converted into electricity.
Entrance to the factory grounds by walking through the dry wateroutlet canal and climbing out using a treetrunk, though in hindsite it would have been easier just to walk around to the front entrance.

.
Most doors are welded shut or bricked off, but on the rearside of the builings a large door stands open.

Large sheets of beer mats (bierviltjes) for many different beer brands are the only produkts still here.
Except for stating the obvious, I can't think of much comment for most pictures.
