Cyklonkessel

As with most European places, they've got a codename. There are good and bad points to this, but it's not for here. This beautiful place takes its namesake from the 'KSG Steinmüller Cyklonkessel' Makers plate that sits above the main a control panel. A 'Cyklonkessel' is a type of boiler used to heat water, in this case for power generation. This whole building, partly built into a hillside, was constructed to provide power for the long-defunct paper mill next door. According to the said plate, this setup dates from 1956. Next door to the 50's plant is an even older power station that appears to be from the first 20 years of the last century. A truly retro experience.
