The activities available to guests and groups at the Langholmen Hotel are all about pretending to be a prisoner and making your escape from the island. You will learn skills such as teamwork, climbing, and marksmanship. Has no-one told the staff that Langholmen is not a prison any more? I can’t imagine why anyone would want to escape because it’s so nice inside.
As well as these fun games of imagination, you can take a Kayak tour of Stockholm and visit the hotel museum which tells you all about Langholmen’s fascinating 250-year history. Judging from the pictures here it seems they have done a commendable job of converting the old prison into a top hotel. Your room is in a converted cell but fortunately, you are given a key so you can go out and enjoy dinner at their traditional Inn and Pub. No bread and water here.
There is also a youth hostel attached to the hotel enabling you to meet a more diverse range of people than you would usually find in a luxury hotel. This unique location allows you to enjoy the sights and sounds of Stockholm and its surrounding countryside from an unusual setting.
