The Arrest If the walls of the arrest could talk they would be able to recount stories about assault, escapes and arson attempts. The arrest is, like the courthouse and judge’s residence, built in Germanic style in 1914-16 by architect Gyszling. These buildings are another example of the influence famous architects has had on Tønder.

A bust of Carsten Richter, who was a former mayor, is placed close by Tønder Gymnasium, and his private residence “Digegrevens Hus” is located in the pedestrian street.Police Station/ Arrest House Housed the all-girls school “Alexandrinen Schule” up until 1945.
