The Romantic Road Sights

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 legal processes in the Middle Ages. Guided tours can be arranged in advance.
