    History

    This prison was built in the end of the 19th century and used to house approx. 600 prisoners. It was built in the outskirts of the city, but due to the growth of this big city, the prison is now situated more or less in the city centre, Most of the inhabitants were men, but there were also cellblocks in separate buildings for women and juveniles.

    Data shows that 8 prisoners have been executed here who were being charged for murder. Most prisoners stayed here for only a short period being several months.

    At one point the prison needed to be renewed, and the city chose to build a prison elsewhere in the city.

    The Explore
    Like the one in France, but better ;)

    From first seeing pictures of this prison, I knew I had to locate it and get it explored as they don't often pop up like this. Many hours of research later and I had my location! or so I thought! Different prison but the same guard towers so it was back to the drawing board until I finally pieced together where the correct location was.

    Fast forward a few weeks and I'm in Belgium on my first euro road trip and decide to take a trip over to see if the place was still accessible or not. Upon entering the grounds, a lot of the doors and gates had been padlocked which didn't fill me with hope on getting inside but we managed to find an opening.

    Even though there was no-one in them, walking past these guard towers was still intimidating.

    Whilst we were gathering our last few pictures before preparing to leave, I could hear the jangling of keys and the sound of a radio drawing ever closer, As I approached the top of the stairs to have a look, four very kind german police officers came into view and told us that we shouldn't be here and would need to leave soon. After a brief conversation, they let us on our way.

    Thanks for reading!​

    It's a shame about the graffiti really, other than that, it's still a pretty decent wander
