City Jail - Enkhuizen
In the old City Jail of Enkhuizen you imagine yourself as a prisoner when a prison sentence was still real misery. Delve into the dark past of the musty oak cells. You can still see the indentations in the walls that the prisoners made pending their verdict. Would they be hanged or just tortured?
The ancient instruments of torture harbor the cruelest memories of the fate of many criminals. The city prison can be found next to the city hall: high, narrow and crooked due to subsidence.
