In the 1960s, Prof. G. Melchers urged that a Guest House for guests and employees of the Institute (at that time the Institute of Biology) should be built. Thus arose, on Waldhäuser Hill, the Max Planck House as a service company for the Max Planck campus in Tübingen, which opened its doors on 1 April 1962.
