Eckardtsheim, Germany

Eichhof was a clinic where private treatment for alcoholic neuropathy took place. Alcoholic neuropathy is a disorder involving decreased nerve functioning caused by damage that results from excessive drinking of alcohol. During the two World Wars, Eichhof was used as a military hospital and between the two wars as an orphanage.

This private clinic was only for the more fortunate people. The forested surroundings also gave some rest to the patients. In 1998, the group was sold to private investors.
