The historical prison in Lucerne was built in 1862 and used as an actual prison until 1998. The cells, in which criminals would have to wait out their sentence, are now able to be experienced by our guests. Individual cells are generally comprised only of 1 bunk bed, 1 shower, and 1 toilet. An adventure based on reality. A very important difference from the earlier jail cells is that the guests of the Jail Hotel can leave whenever they wish. The breakfast in the bar and lounge area is included. And free wifi is available as well.
The city of Lucerne is the cultural hub of central Switzerland and was founded during the Roman era. Lucerne impresses it visitors today by combining the modern and its historical roots. The Jail Hotel is located in the Altstadt (old city) and is only a few minutes away from the central train station on foot. There are also countless bars and restaurants in the area. The entrance to the bar (Club Alcatraz) that is associated with the hotel is free for Jail Hotel guests.
