Sanatorium Königsberg was a tuberculosis sanatorium on the Königsberg between Goslar and the Granetalsperre.
The sanatorium was put into operation in 1985. The main building was formerly a private residence built only 3 years prior. The hospital eventually ceased operations in 1970 due to the dwindling number of tuberculosis patients.
After four years of vacancy the Cornelius-Helferich Foundation took over the plant in 1974, to make a treatment and nursing home for mentally handicapped children- and that apparently in a miserable way. The operators couple literally has “ruled” and there was little money available. In September 1984, the home due to not holding the regulations of the country’s social welfare office was closed. So, the supervisory authority have repeatedly criticized the structural conditions without that because something has changed, and then to withdrawn authorization for the operation of the home. Many myths and ghost stories are told about this area and its buildings.
Today, only ruins remain after several fires and vandalism. This atmosphere, after 30 years of decline, is optimal for rumors, legends and horror stories of all types.
