The built 1898-1930 by the Landesversicherungsanstalt Berlin "Workers tuberculosis sanatoriums" constitute one of the largest hospital complexes in the surrounding areas.

The whole system was exemplary for its time and shows with which social commitment and medical expenses against tuberculosis has been taken as the devastating common disease to the late 19th century. The location in Beelitz offered in addition to the excellent connection to Berlin and Potsdam region due to its location in a large forest area, the necessary climatic conditions for the care of patients: quiet and sheltered from the wind with a smoke- and dust-free air.

The combination of unusual architecture and decay makes the sanatoriums a popular motif for film productions. In addition to numerous television and student films also parts Polanski The Pianist, Wolfgang Becker were Sick House, Valkyrie with Tom Cruise and other feature films in the sanatoriums.
