Many sanatoriums were built between 1910 and 1940 due to the huge outbreak of tubercolosis this hospital is one of them.
Built in 1932 and opened in 1947, delayed due to the Second World War.
This building is 250 meters long and 6 levels high. Long corridors and endless rooms are characteristic of this building.
They were provided with all the necessities. And in this huge building there was still room for a Theatre, Swimming Pool, Chapel and a great view.
Later this building was used for rehabilitation and follow-up care.
After 2008 this huge building was no longer needed and due to high costs for heating and maintenance,
It has been for sale for a long time but no chance for converting. Because the costs for demolition are very high, this building has become a huge burden for the hospital group. They try to close it, but people continue to look and make entrances.
