A bone-chilling tour as our costumed guide takes you around some of the Old Town's cobbled streets dispensing the history of the dark characters that used to roam them and why their names became immortalised. Then you'll enter our medieval torture exhibition with instruments from Nuremberg and Bamberg castles in Germany dating back to the late 1500s and early 1600s. Finally, you'll enter our paranormally active and haunted underground vaults to see our cursed, old stone circle Pagan temple, our infamous legendary haunted vault and a recently working witchcraft temple. Be afraid, be very afraid!
