A NEW HOME.
Röntgen responds to a call of the University of Gießen, where he finally finds professional satisfaction after the University restructures and extends the institute to suit his wishes. After moving to Gießen, the couple rapidly gains a lot of private friends. Many of the friendships that Röntgen and his wife make here will last for a lifetime. Together they go places and Röntgen can pursue his passion for hiking and hunting.
The couple remains childless. Thus, they adopted the daughter of Bertha‘s widowed brother in Gießen. Röntgen‘s parents also move to Gießen and spend their last years with the young family.
