Since 2006 when the last inmate left the former Horsens State Penitentiary, intense work and effort have been invested in the project which is now a reality: FÆNGSLET (THE PRISON). Today the historic buildings of the former state penitentiary houses FÆNGSLET, the cultural institution that encompasses The Prison Museum, the city’s tourist information center VISITHORSENS, the prison hotel SleepIn Fængslet, business events, festivals, concerts, the shared office space FÆNGSLET 2. EAST and much more. In the heart of FÆNGSLET stands The Prison Museum where the Museum of Horsens has created a unique experience of the life behind walls through sound, film, photos and belongings – ideally situated within the authentic surroundings of the old penitentiary. The former prison yard where inmates used to enjoy fresh air and exercise is today a concert arena. Outdoor concerts and event of any taste can be enjoyed here throughout the summer semester.
