image for Colditz: a holiday destination with a difference

Colditz Castle, once a prison used to keep Allied POWs is marketing itself as a holiday destination.

The regime is a little different from the ordinary holiday camp. For instance, there are compulsory headcounts before breakfast and at 6pm. Lights out is at 10pm. Anyone caught wandering the corridors after dark without permission runs the risk of being shot. These are just some of the rules you are expected to conform to should you book your two weeks in the sun at Colditz.

"It's marvellous," said Agnetha, chairwoman of BDSM International, "I booked two weeks and ended up in solitary on bread and water. I'm coming back next year, definitely. Hope to actually escape, next time."

The owner of the Hotel, Albert Speer, said, "There has been increased interest since we turned the old commandant's quarters into youth accommodation, with special family rooms. But there is no dungeon. I keep telling people this, but no-one believes it. There is no dungeon. So, if you're looking for that sort of thing, you may well be disappointed. But we're going more for the family market, where parents may teach their children how to escape, write coded massages, build gliders from toilet rolls, that sort of thing. The response has been good, so far."
