Full description
Enjoy a 1-hour walk through Frankfurt at night with a robed hangman as your guide. Follow your scary guide (if you dare) on a journey of discovery of Frankfurt's history and his bloody work. But while you listen to your guide, be aware, for he must finish his work and he has no time to waste because the devil is after him.  Start your journey into the past at the cathedral, where German kings and emperors were elected and crowned. Continue towards the bank of the Main where many culprits, mostly women, were drowned in the water. Finally, reach your final stop, the Römer, Frankfurt's famous Town Hall, where you will learn all about the Römerberg's gruesome past as the location of many medieval death penalty punishments and torture chambers.
