  • A very interesting place to visit with lots to see. It's hard to imagine this place was still in use up until the late eighties. Most of the reading material is only in German but I don't think it's necessary to read it; the introductory video (subtitled in English) and photos should be enough to give you the gist. Takes a couple of hours to have a good look around.
  • Nice museum. Maybe they should be make plates or guidance in English at least. And more things concerning everyday life of prisoners (food, spoons, saucers) to show conditions in prison.
