In the last couple of years, I have traveled often to Germany in a search for abandoned ballrooms and you would be surprised how many there are.
In the past, almost every German village had a local hotel. This was the place where people of the town would come together to have feasts, weddings, birthdays or any big celebrations. The majority of these hotels had their own ballrooms. However, times changed and these places became old-fashioned and got neglected.
Sometimes, I was lucky enough to find totally stacked hotels, with beds still made and dishes in the cupboards. Sadly, most of the time I found the rooms empty. However, the beautiful ballrooms made up for it.
