Prison Alcatraz

Another important attraction is the former prison Alcatraz. Today you can visit it without problems – provided you get tickets for the ferry in time, which means, in this case, two to three months before 😉

Alcatraz, which is a 500 meters wide island, is more than 1,2 miles away from the mainland and located in the Golden Gate Bay. The most famous inmate was Al Capone, who was in Alcatraz from 1934 to 1939. Especially the location of the island made escape attempts impossible.
