Fodor's Review

The gruesome medieval implements of torture on display here are not for the fainthearted. The only museum in Europe that provides an overview of the history of law also soberly documents the history of German trials in the Middle Ages. A special exhibition through the end of 2018 pays extra attention to the city's history of witchcraft and witch hunts. Guided tours can be arranged in advance.
