Medieval Crime Museum Tours

With exhibits ranging from grotesque shame masks to ominous looking iron torture cages, Rothenburg’s Medieval Crime Museum is surely one of Germany’s most unique sights. The gruesome array of punishment and torture devices on display is certainly the focal point of a visit, but it’s not all for shock value – the museum also offers a fascinating insight into medieval crime and punishment, from arrests and public trials, to the development of criminal law and the working of the European courts. 

Delve into Germany’s murky past and learn about the legal use of torture, punishment and the death penalty, as well as hearing about some of Bavaria’s most notorious criminals, who dabbled in everything from treason to murder to witchcraft. 

Practical Info

The Medieval Crime Museum is located in Rothenburg ob der Tauber on Germany’s Romantic Road and is open between May and October from 10am to 6pm, and afternoons only throughout the rest of the year. Adult admission costs €5.
