Ballonen – prison turned youth hostel

The former state prison Ballonen, situated on Frederiksø, was built in 1825 to house the political prisoner Dr Dampe, a dissident, philosopher and theologian who spoke out against the king and the absolute monarchy. 

Today, the five prison cells have been converted into accommodation with a communal kitchen and bath and toilet in the hall. The standard corresponds to an average youth hostel.

Christiansø Administration runs Ballonen and is responsible for reservations.

Reservations can be made between 10 am and noon on weekdays by calling +45 5646 2013.
