In 1895, the foundation of the family Louis Schlutter, built this hospital. In 1899, the sanatorium opened as a provincial district hospital. Doctor Clemens Weisker was the first director. After disputes with the founder and the hospital commission, Weisker’s contract was terminated after only two years. Louis Schlutter died in 1904. You can still find his name, as the founder, on the building.

The site was enlarged in 1927, several service buildings were added. The hospital served as a military hospital during the Second World War and after 1945 as a sanatorium for the Soviet occupation. Since 1990 the buildings became abandoned.
