A Nazi prisoner-of-war camp has been opened as a spartan $32-a-night hotel for vacationers willing to relive the wartime experience.
Colditz Castle in the German state of Saxony was specifically equipped for “troublesome” officers who had escaped from other camps, and was the site of frequent escape attempts.
Guests sleep in the World War II guards’ living quarters and offices, and eat in the staff canteen, reports the British newspaper The Sun
They are also will be given a three-hour tour of tunnels and hidden rooms used by the POWs.
Colditz Castle – built in the 11th century – holds a special place in British memories of the war due to the 30 cunning escapes. A 1955 movie, "The Colditz Story," remains one of that country’s favorite films of all time.
