Sanatorium in the Forest

Sanatorium in the Forest

This is a building with a long and troubled history.

It was built in the early 1900s in late historicism style and renovated after the Second World War in the opposite style: popular architecture (also known as “New Objectivity“).

This building was a sanatorium, a hospital (under Nazism), and finally a hotel.

Kafka stayed here during the last years of his life, he was then moved to another sanatorium where he later died.

The hotel was closed in 2002.
