Kraftwerk Vockerode, Abandoned Power Plant, Germany

Kraftwerk V Power Plant Germany

A huge abandoned power plant in Germany with a seriously epic control room.

Visited May 2015 Wittenberg, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany Abandoned

Kraftwerk Vockerode 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.
