Style of hotel and ambience

The former prison was renovated, extended, and turned into a unique hotel. Narrow, dark cells have given way to modern, light rooms that promise a pleasant stay. In the hotel's Skyline Restaurant, you are definitely not served prison grub but excellent cooking. The jail charm has been maintained in the dungeon, which is now home to a pub.

Special features of the hotel

The old jail house Fronveste promises to its guests a extraordinary stay with its skyline restaurant Monte Christo over the roofes of Meiningen and the jail Die Kneipe.
