Themed tour on the history, architecture & use of the most famous house in Quadrant A

Indoor – themed building tour, not barrier-free (participation from 12 years, helmet compulsory)

Experience what was once Brandenburg’s most famous “lost place” at the start of its revitalization. Wander through one of the most impressive expressionist clinic buildings.

The surgery building – myth & modernity. – Go on a journey through time with our guides: opened in 1930 as the most modern lung surgery facility in Germany, the building was the medical heart of the largest military hospital of the Soviet armed forces after the Second World War, before it was (turned) into the “Lost Place” par excellence after 1994. On the first floor of what is probably the most famous sanatorium building, discover the interiors from the patient rooms to the operating theaters, from the historic elevator to one of the bathrooms and marvel at how aesthetics and functionality once worked together.

There is no seating in the building. Helmets are compulsory for all tour participants.
