Its origins go back to the 13th century, when a religious foundation was set up in about 1260.
As a result, the hospital, a home for the elderly and poor among Hof’s citizens was built next to the Lower Gate outside the town walls of Hof next to the river Saale. As its tradition going back 750 years, this facility is one of the oldest hospital foundations in Germany. The Bavarian Vogtland Museum and the town’s archives are also housed at the foundation’s headquarters in front of the former Lower Gate.
