Many of the former cells have been connected to form more spacious guestrooms, while windows have been modified to better frame the surrounding countryside. Thick original walls and many steel doors keep the building’s history at the forefront.

ARCHITECTURE

BEAUTY UNCHAINED

Designed in 1840 by Heinrich Hübsch, one of Baden’s most renowned architects at the time, this former prison is built from the same red sandstone that was used for the cathedrals of Freiburg and Strasbourg. In its history, the building has gone through numerous fortifications and renovations involving new oak floors, the removal of window bars, and an added glass section between two brick buildings.
