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.
Exactly, it was never a prison. There also are/were several Mexican restaurants named Alcatraz in Berlin and even a bar with that name if I recall correctly. I'm too lazy to look it all up right now.
