    Anyone who has ever set foot on the enchanted terrain of the Beelitz Heilstätten knows about the magic of this plant. Ancient castles, buildings that radiate incomparable charm, a vast old park with an undreamt of biodiversity, and a history that goes back more than 100 years. Nature, history and architecture seem to merge into a total work of art in this magical place.

    As the first treetop path he not only opens up the world above the treetops, but also spans a huge ruin on which an original forest has been developing for over 60 years.

    At a height of up to 23 meters on the path and 36 meters on the tower, the treetop path opens up an unprecedented perspective on a magical place.

After the German division military hospital; expire after the withdrawal of the Red Army; 1990 temporary stay of the cancer patient Erich Honecker. Today a listed ensemble of 60 buildings. Since September 2015, a 320-meter-long treetop path has provided a spectacular view from up to 23 meters above the overgrown building ruins of the former Beelitz Heilstätten and, of course, the treetop habitat.

    A unique venue. Here nature gets her room back. Visiting the Treetop Trail is a less-priced thing, but well worth it. The path is not very long, but in connection with the barefoot path (cost extra) quite an experience even for children.

    Brand new the Baumgipfelpfad! We recommend. Just do not dine there very expensive.

    To visit the sanatoria you need a little time, a good view and a good camera. Unfortunately, we were not able to join a tour inside the buildings, but we will definitely make up for it. The morbid charm of the terrain and the buildings is remarkable.

    Recently, a barefoot path has opened beside the treetop path. Be sure to go in, especially with children. It's a great experience

    On September 11, 2015, the first treetop path in Brandenburg was opened on the site of the former women's lung sanatorium. It is 320 meters long, up to 23 meters high and crosses the tree-covered ruins of the burned-out pavilion B IV in 1944 - the building was also called "The Alpine House". Access is from the third platform of the 36-meter high observation tower.

    The Beelitz Sanctuaries are a huge area and offer a bizarre contrast of renovated buildings and ruins. After the end of the Second World War, in which the sanctuaries were partly severely damaged, the area was taken over in 1945 by the Red Army. The sanatoriums served until 1994 as the largest military hospital of the Soviet / Russian army abroad. It was also from December 1990, the whereabouts of Erich Honecker suffering from liver cancer, before he and his wife Margot were flown out to Moscow on March 13, 1991.

    Historical and scenic very nice place. Costs almost 10 Euro admission, tours cost extra, but are very informative and exciting. The area alone and the ruins there are worth seeing, even the part that is accessible free of charge. When we were there there were good stalls with grilled and fish sandwiches.

    I recommend a guided tour in the area Beelitz-Heilstätten, about 3 hours for the treetop path and the former sanatorium plan. Very interesting what you get to the guide so everything. 2 adults for both about 39 EUR.

    The Beilitz-Heilstätten workers' lung sanatoriums, built between 1898 and 1930 by the Berlin State Insurance Institution, form one of the largest hospital complexes in the Berlin area. It is a listed ensemble of 60 buildings on a total area of approximately 200 ha.

    The terrain fascinates by ruins and renovated buildings. That was also used for film sets.
