    The "Alpenhaus" on the site of the former "Workers' and Lung Sanatorium" in Beelitz-Heilstätten was a sanatorium for a total of 273 patients until the end of the Second World War. In the last weeks of the war the Alpenhaus was destroyed and not rebuilt. Since then the building has been falling into disrepair.While the roof has been almost completely reclaimed by nature and is not accessible, you can visit part of the ground floor. The former dining room, the bathroom, some hospital rooms and the sanitary rooms are included. Not only is the atmosphere great, but also the small details. There are, for example, the power lines laid at the beginning of the 20th century with small porcelain insulators under the ceilings. Or the lack of floor edges or ornaments so that the tuberculosis bacteria didn't have a chance to hide. Very impressive, even if you have to push your way through the aisles with 30 other visitors.You can find information about the tours here: baumundzeit.de

    The name Alpenhaus actually has nothing to do with this area, but when the excavation was made there were a few small hills with the excavation, the architect had them raised a bit and lakes created and a small alpine panorama was created.

    The roof forest is very impressive. There are also guided tours here.

    The inside of the Alpenhaus can only be viewed with a guided tour. You can admire it very well from outside and above via the treetop path. The tour is not available at a bargain price, but it is worth it! 👍

    A very historically interesting area. It is a shame to see these old venerable buildings slowly reclaimed from nature. Try it out anyway and take a look at the whole area as long as possible. The guided tours through the old buildings are highly recommended.

    The Alpenhaus can be explored both from below and via a tree top path. On the way you learn everything about the history of this building.

    Really worth seeing. Be sure to book a guided tour. You get a lot of information and come into the building.

    It is really impressive how nature takes back the house. End time feeling. Very very tourist crowded on great days. Guided tour bookable within.

    The Alpenhaus will stand for a maximum of 10 years, then it will collapse. Better hurry.
    Great tour, impressive area. Here in particular, nature brings the structure back very quickly

    The view from above into these old ruins makes it possible to put yourself in this long-forgotten time. Scary!

    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 Building B IV, which burned out in 1945 - it was also called "Das Alpenhaus".
