sleep behind bars
A night behind bars becomes a reality at SleepIn FÆNGSLET.
SleepIn Fængslet is an unforgettable overnight stay with plenty of food for thought.
The goal is to create a remarkable, authentic experience of prison life that grips our guests the moment they step through the big green gates of the former penitentiary. It accommodates the common museum guest as well as our visiting conference attendees and school classes on field trips. An experience you will never forget – that is what we aim at with SleepIn FÆNGSLET.
SleepIn FÆNGSLET is situated in the prison’s old sick ward. The building has been carefully renovated in order to fulfill the requirements for housing our new “voluntary” overnight guests. However, the authenticity has not been compromised. One example is the old radio in the cells that has been preserved in working condition and the graffiti by former inhabitants that still covers the cell walls.
SleepIn FÆNGSLET has 55 beds in 22 rooms, each one accommodating 1-4 pers. Showers and toilets are located in the halls.
The hostel is considered a socioeconomic business and profits are channeled into other activities and happenings in the prison.
A night at SleepIn FÆNGSLET will not only take you back to the prison past – it will crawl under your skin.
SleepIn FÆNGSLET has wheelchair access, 2+2 pers. wheelchair-friendly rooms and toilet and showering facilities for disabled.
