Fancying a day out at the swimming baths in Neuköln, we headed towards the site of Blub, that is the Berliner Luft- und Badeparadies (Berlin air and bathing paradise). But oh noes! We seem to have come too late! Unfortunately the indoor/outdoor swimming and sauna complex had to be closed down in 2005. Something about the fussy health inspectors of the Berlin Council not being too happy about people swimming in rat's faeces. Oh, die Schlappschwänze! That and that youth gangs had claimed it as their territory and terrorized families looking for a fun day out. The sauna area limped on until 2012 as 'Al Andalus', but inevitably the rats over-ran Paradise.
Now it is a paradise for graffiti artists and urbex photographers, so let's go!
