Past turn into gravel

Abandonded construction a little bit outer than the middle of nowhere.
Honestly, didn’t see the sign before leaving the place.
The area was for about fourty years a part of DDR – the eastern german part.
Now surrounded by water at one side and trees the three others.

The nearest area close by is likely to be controlled with chemicals.
It most closely resembles a lunar landscape – every moment is expected,
that Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin or one of the other ten lunar walkers pass by.
Neither did David Scott (not even Roger Moore aka James Bond) in the lunar car.

When visiting abandoned places the most striking – many broken windows.
Don’t know if it is human causes, or a natural cause.?
