1. Berlin: Mysterious Dark Ages Walking Tour
In the dark ages of the Middle Ages, wolves threatened our beautiful city of Berlin and stories were told about witches, werewolves, demons and the devil himself. Mummies are said to have risen in Berlin and scared the Berliners to death.... The "Reaper" (also called Grim Reaper) was a personified allegory of death and people in the Middle Ages believed in life after death. The three-headed hellhound "Cerberus" guards the entrance to the underworld so that no living person enters and no mortal escapes. What is hidden in the underworld and why does this thought still fascinate us today....??? In the Berlin City Palace, an eerie figure is said to have terrified the electors and kings in the Middle Ages. Did such a sinister figure really exist and where has it gone today? The witch hunts and torture are among the darkest chapters in German history. Find out today how such "madness" could spread in a country of intelligentsia and poets. Executions were carried out publicly in the Middle Ages because they were intended to create a kind of "deterrent". This turned into true folk festivals. Today you will visit "the devil's pleasure garden" and find out what cruel madness took place in the 16th century. Don't miss out on this entertaining evening walk.
