Alcatraz is somewhere in Germany according to Apple Maps.
What? I didn't know that the continental drift had gone that far yet!
There is a Alcatraz in Germany. It's a prison that was turn into a Hotel. It's in Berlin, East Berlin.

Then there's Alcatraz Island.
No, I don't think that's correct. There is a hostel located near the former site of the Wall in what used to be East Berlin. It's named "Alcatraz" after the prison in California (which gets its name from the pelicans which used to hang out on that island before people started using it.) The building occupied by the hostel was never a prison; it's just a building.
