About
The Sanatorium Zonnestraal by architect Duiker is one of the earliest and most important examples of architecture of the Modern Movement. Apart from a high point in architectural history, the complex is also an important social landmark. Conceived as a follow-up colony cure tuberculosis sufferers prepare for their reintegration into society, is the brainchild of Sunbeam trade unionist Jan van Zutphen (1863-1958). His ideal is realized with money that the diamond workers union brings together the TB Patients on its members to help.Monthly tourEvery last Sunday of the month there are tours (1 ½ hour) provided by a professional guide. These tours start at 12.00 hours and 14.00 hours from Dresselhuis Pavilion (nr. 19). One should specify in advance to Landgoed Zonnestraal

Struggling monument of modernistic architecture
Sep 2017 • Couples
Built as a recovery hospital for Tuberculosis patients Zonnestraal stood empty for decades before being partly restored. Some small business, a nice restaurant and art galleries are now struggling to keep the place alive, battling with local government to get funds for full restoration.

Nice to visit if you like architecture (or if you need medical expertice)
Mar 2017 • Family
I went to this spot for treatment in the expert clinic (the best hand-specialists in the Netherlands) and I'm glad that I discovered it: the buildings (in which more specialized clinics are situated) are unique and great architecture. Everything is transparant (because of the use of much glass) and light. It's nice to walk between the buildings and in the woods nearby.

Great architecture and restauration of an historical place
May 2015
It used to be a sanatorium, a complete self sufficient place for sick people to live. Nowadays it is a health center, but beautifully restored. If you are into architecture, you should go there! They do magnificent things with new measurements for buildings in respect of the old ones and if you live nature you also should go there. The scenery is beautiful. If you love history, you should read about the place first. It is intriguing to walk these historical grounds.

Beautiful example of architecture of the 1930s Landgoed Zonnestraal Hilversum
Aug 2014
This building is a beautiful set of buildings which reflect a special period in the architectural era of the 20th century of the Nteherlands. There are organized tours around the facilities which where used for patients suffering of tuberculosis during the aftermath of the Second World War. It very nicely shows how the medical world thought about the disease as well as how the patients were cared for. The architecture is very special indeed.

Historical

I love the way this place has been preserved and taken back into use. It used to be a hospital and even still has the little resting cottages which were used for patients that had the plague. The location is situated in a forrest area to compliment the aspect of rest and peace.
