The first home on the site Winnenden in Württemberg was founded in the former castle. After modifications to the then latest findings, the hospital for up to 100 beds, was opened in 1834. Dr. Albert Zeller, the first medical director, was convinced that the patients could be cured. He gave the patient's welfare, care and compassion. By a beautiful, healthy environment and a strict Tagesstrukur, he saw his treatment supported. It developed Zeller therapies, which are still today working as occupational therapy, group therapy and social inclusion.
