Beelitz-Heilstätten is a hospital complex of about 60 buildings. Some sections remain in operation for neurological rehabilitation and for research and care for victims of Parkinsons disease.

if this was my joint, I'd get morning glories, let them grow up the walls and along the railings. Fill it with ferns and flowers. Have a moss-covered fountain and make this a home for butterflies.
