Welcome to BARABAS - the first prison hotel in Switzerland!
Whether sleeping in the cell, in the former office of the prison warden or in the old library, today's Hotel Barabas offers a lot of comfort and is an experience for young and old in the heart of the old town of Lucerne. Free WLAN and private bathrooms are part of it in the prison. Only 10 minutes away from the train station, Hotel Barabas is the perfect starting point for excursions in the region or a leisurely stroll through Lucerne.

The space
The central prison, built in 1862, is the perfect blend of modernity and the authentic prison feeling. The original cell doors and architecture will make you wallow in old times, while a green oasis of well-being awaits you in the former courtyard. In the in-house restaurant Izakaya Nozomi you can discover the variety of Japanese cuisine and enjoy various sake with it.
