It’s not so easy to find derelict buildings in Munich – real estate is far too valuable to be left to decay in peace. But there are exceptions. Not exactly an insider tip for people looking for “lost places”, so-called urban explorers, is the deserted Olympic Train Station, built in 1972 for the 1974 Olympic Games and last used in 1988. The last time I visited it, it wasn’t fenced in. Today I could only take pictures from the outside. There was a hole in the fence, but I didn’t fancy dragging my bike in for a picture.
I was surprised to read that the train station along with the train tracks are now protected as hisorical monuments. Probably because doing anything constructive with the grounds would cost the city a lot of money.
