The correctional facility Lübeck (also called Lauerhof ) is located on the Lauerhöfer Felde in the Lübeck district of St. Gertrud auf Marli and is the second largest prison in Schleswig-Holstein. It has 399 detention places for men, plus 39 places in social therapy. In addition, there are 69 places in prison for the entire women's prison system in the state.


The correctional facility was built between 1908 and 1909 as a prison with 558 prison places.

time of the nationalsocialism

During the time of National Socialism , the number of prisoners in the Lübeck-Lauerhof women's prison increased. Among others, the social democratic resistance fighter Gustel Breitzke and the communist resistance fighters Margarete Kaufmann and Hedwig Voegt were imprisoned. Furthermore, the French resistance fighters France Bloch-Sérazin and Suzanne Masson were imprisoned here until they were guilty at the Hamburg remand prison on Holstenglacis. A plaque of the Ahrensbök memorial for the two resistance fighters was inaugurated in 2014 on the grounds of the Lübeck prison.

Special events

The institution became known nationwide through the escape of the felon Christian Bogner on October 26, 2004, who is said to have killed the landscape gardener Engelbert Danielsen on the same day and later buried it in the Nordheide ( Harburg district ). The police union thereupon sharply criticized the Kiel Ministry of Justice , which had long been informed about security deficits due to a lack of staff. Minister Anne Lütkes ( Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen ) rejected calls for resignation . The minister launched disciplinary investigations against prison staff.

In response to the event, a new 6 meter high wall was built around the existing wall from the end of 2007.
