The Ökumenische Hainich Klinikum gGmbH Mühlhausen built a new building for forensic psychiatry north of the existing hospital area, with financial support of the state of Thüringen.

Spread out over 5 wards the new hospital is able to house up to 80 mentally ill people.


The configuration of the building consists of a triangular ring, with required staircases being located at each corner. The centre is used to establish a green courtyard.
