New construction of
Detention House B -
Neumünster Prison

The German correctional institution Neumünster in the northern federal state of Schleswig-Holstein was built from 1901 to 1905 as the Neumünster Central Prison in panoptic style. The buildings constructed at that time with their regularly structured brick and plaster facades are listed.

The enclosed area of the facility is surrounded by a 685-metre-long wall. Since 2004, the entire prison has been completely renovated and modernised by Gebäudemanagement Schleswig-Holstein AöR (GMSH).

The prison has a total of 596 places for male prisoners. Of these, 51 are open prison places in two houses on Holsatenring and on the Moltsfelde estate.

For the current new construction of Detention House B, a building from the 1960s with poor structural fabric was demolished at the same location. The modern, multifunctional new building with a floor space of 5,700 square metres will include a medical, social therapy and psychiatric department.

For the new building, which cost almost 18 million euros, STUV Prison Solutions is supplying detention room locks, passage door locks and motorised locks of the HSL series for mechanical and electronic use with control. Completion is planned for the first quarter of 2022.
