Zwinger-Prison Münster

This old building was during the National-Socialist era a prison and execution range of the Gestapo. In 1945, it was partly destroyed by an Allied bombardment, but the executions continued.

Now it is a memorial for the victims of National-Socialism. There are sightings during the summer months.
