You may not exactly be the first one here, but it´s one of the most popular urbex destinations right now for a good reason. The sheer dimensions of this place are enough to make it a completely surreal experience to explore. On top of that, it´s also insanely picturesque. There´s rusty machinery and huge mazes of pipes twisting and bending in the most confusing ways as far as the eye can see. Dare I say "indursty porn" at it´s absolute wildest.
When it comes to access, my personal experience was a bit tense, but I´m sure there were easier access points than the one I used. Watch out when you´re in the open between buildings, as you may encounter vehicles driving around on the grounds. Also in some areas, there´s lot´s of metallc dust, so bringing a respirator would be advised.
If you rush through, you can see the highlights in a couple of hours, but if you really wanna do this enourmous place justice, take at least two days. It´s worth it.
Personally (as a fan of industry), this is currently my favourite abandoned place. Do it. It´s a blast (pun intended).
