JVA Moabit (Prison), Berlin, Germany

This correctional facility is truly "old-school", build in the late 19th century. It is built in the so-called "pan-optical-system" which means the guards are sitting in the centre and have visual access to all five blocks/houses at any time.

Novelist Hans Fallada wrote his famous novel "Wer einmal aus dem Blechnapf ***" while detained in Moabit.
