If you are in Leeuwarden and looking for a fun activity, then a look at this former prison should not be missed. Trendy cafés and restaurants, workshop spaces, game companies and a hostel have now taken the place of the inmates. But the stories thankfully remain. Famous and infamous names like Herman Brood, Holleeder, Doctor O., Aage M. and, of course, the Hogerhuizen have made history here... Take a guided tour with a former inmate and wander through this exciting building. Every Saturday and Sunday, there is a Prison Tour you can sign up for.
