Vestre Prison Wikipedia
Vestre Prison (Danish: Vestre Fængsel) is the main jail of the Danish capital, Copenhagen. Erected in 1895, it is Denmark's largest prison with a total capacity of 530 inmates. It primarily houses pretrial detainees, not convicted felons.
During much of the German occupation of Denmark, Vestre Fængsel was operated by German police.
