Specialty Museum
If you're curious about ancient punishment and torture, you'll want to stop by Criminal Medieval Museum. Four floors with more than 130 displays reveal the history of European law and punishment, starting with the medieval period. Be aware that the exhibits explaining the penalties that were meted out during this time might make you squeamish. The sections that focus on the development of German law are especially interesting. A guided tour will help you go even more in-depth. Many aspects of the museum may not be suitable for children--or the faint of heart. Take a look at our Rothenburg itinerary builder to schedule your visit to Criminal Medieval Museum and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
