In a city near Erfurt Germany in a burned out and abandoned hotel this room sits quiet amongst the bustle of the busy city outside, slowly it is being reclaimed by nature and no one knows of the beauty that sits inside this abandoned building only a few feet from the sidewalk.
The hotel suffered from a fire 3 years ago but it was purchased by a man who used his brothers stolen passport to obtain the loan. The hotel is just sitting in idle decline while the German courts try to decide who ownership of the property belongs to now.
