Back to Beelitz

Last Thursday I made a second visit to the Beelitz sanatorium. I read in the papers that a somewhat trustworthy speculant has recently (finally) bought the sanatorium complex. It's a firm that has previously successfully renovated many properties in Potsdam. Until now, all potential Beelitz developers had gone bankrupt before having gotten anything done. Here's hoping that the old buildings will be restored with respect and love and put to new use in a constructive way that will be rewarding for the whole community.

Since the area will be off-limits once the restauration begins at some point in the future, I wanted to make sure that the first time I went there wasn't the last time. There were some buildings that we didn't visit back in January, and though we explored the surgery building, we somehow managed to miss the perhaps most interesting part - the operation rooms.

The hallway that leads to the operation rooms.
