London, Feb 12 (ANI): Austrian incest fiend Josef Fritzl's flat has been put on eBay as a holiday home.

Tourists are expected to bid up to 700 pounds-a-night to stay in the one-bedroom flat.

It is being auctioned by Fritzl's current tenant Anton Kraushofer.

Fritzl owns Kraushofer's two-storey 'House of Horrors' featuring seven flats, a pizzeria, a shoe shop and 13 parking spots - which is up for sale for 565,000 pounds.

Kraushofer came up with the idea after seeing the town's hotels were fully booked for the dungeon dad's trial next month, reports the Daily Star.

The 33-year-old lorry driver said: "It's not just the money, I am doing this because I am a good person."

Fritzl used to be a regular visitor and carried out all the maintenance work on the apartment.

Kraushofer said: "He was a neat, completely normal-looking pensioner, always friendly and kind. He probably was a bit wealthy because he was driving a Mercedes."

Fritzl, 74, used his daughter Elisabeth as his sex slave for 24 years after imprisoning her in a basement dungeon under the family home in nearby Amstetten.

She bore seven children by her dad - one of whom he is accused of killing by failing to get medical help

He faces court in Sankt Poelten on March 16 charged with murder, rape, slavery, incest, imprisonment and abuse. (ANI)
