Lots of people wants to explore the Castle of Mesen for it's beauty and serenity. As always with a hype, unwanted "guests" appeared on the location with bad intensions. Some folks have no respect for the castle and the local people. Others where caught by the police while stealing parts from the abandoned castle. With rough force complete stairs and bannisters where stolen. Copper thiefs have brutally taken away the small collection of copper that was still in the castle. The coloured stained glass windows are still intact, just for how long this will stay...

Rumours about a nearby demolition are getting bigger each year! The conditions are getting more dangerous by the week! Keep in mind that the place is very dangerous and unstable to explore. I've been there for 2 and 5 years ago and in the spring of 2007 for a reshoot. The conditions are very bad! I only can advise to stay on the ground! It's always the best to watch to large amount of photos on the web!!!
