Kraftwerk V is an abandoned power plant in Germany. The power plant was seriously huge – once home to 12 turbines in a single hall. The turbines have since been removed, but the turbine hall remains, complete with two small control rooms.

A further, much larger control room remains in perfect condition. The control room appears to have been preserved just how it would have been when the plant closed. A vast array of traditional control panels surround the room, along with a few stations in the centre. Amazingly we also discovered the lights still work.

Our Visit
The second stop on a tour of Germany with Spider Monkey, Val and Robin Decay saw us arrive at Kraftwerk V and we were instantly in awe of the size! We had a quick scout around the building and found some sort of event taking place just by our access point, so we had to rethink things. Our perseverance paid off and we soon found ourselves inside the huge building. The amazing control room took some finding, but proved to be the highlight of the visit – this control room took our breath away when we walked in!
