  • Vanessa Kopp

    The fortress on the striking mountain Asperg can be seen from afar. It has been used as a prison since the beginning of the 18th century. Since 1968, it houses the prison hospital of the Baden-Wuerttemberg judiciary.

    A museum gives insights into the lives of 23 inmates from three
    Centuries and shows why they were imprisoned. The House of History Baden-Württemberg has set up the impressive exhibition at this historic location. The museum is open from April to October, from Thursday to Sunday. For the entrance you pay four euros. Further information about the museum can be found here: hdgbw.de/ausstellungen/hohenasperg.
