Every country has them: abandoned scary places. Places that give you goosebumps and make the hair on the back of your neck prickle. For Halloween, I thought I’d compile my best scary and creepy pictures from around the globe. It’s heavy on abandoned buildings and cemeteries since those are two things I love to photograph.
Let’s hope you don’t ever get stuck in some of these places alone at night! Trick or treat!
Photo above: The abandoned cafeteria of Beelitz Heilstätten, a sanatorium for tuberculosis treatment methods in the early 20th century near Berlin.
Situated in old East Berlin, the abandoned Alte Fleischfabrik (Old Meat Factory) was owned by the Konsumgenossenschaft (KGB), a consumer association, and was established in 1899.
St. Michael’s Indian Residential School in Alert Bay, BC, Canada. Abandoned school where the First Nations people were forced to assimilate into Canadian Catholic culture.
Muckross Abbey in Killarney, Ireland. Old graves intermingle with new among the ruins of an old Abbey. Creepy to walk around on a rainy day.
Abandoned house that reminded me of a scene from Poltergeist. Found on Prince Edward Island, Canada. The weeds/flowers are a nice touch
Abandoned printing factory outside of Berlin (above)
1. Beelitz room—not too cozy
