Haus Der Offiziere Wünsdorf was a German military and sports training camp until the Red Army took over during WWii and the Forbidden City was born.
The Germans don’t mess about when it comes to details. Just look at that curved entrance with Doric columns! We wasn’t aware of the large dining room in here, which was a pleasant surprise as we entered the building.
The dining room has a small stage and ornate featured ceiling. I guess the stage was added by the soviets they seem to like their entertainment. Between the dining hall and the swimming pool there was a sauna which I never noticed. When you enter the arched ceiling swimming pool you are welcomed by four tiled starting blocks and there is a viewing balcony the opposite side. There are arches everywhere in here all the windows, the changing room entrances and even the radiators are set in recessed arches. To the rear of the pool is a boiler house which I also missed.
We don't spend too long here and are soon on to the next building on the site. Yes this place is big and too much for one report so I have broken it up into the separate buildings that I visited.
