Virtual multimedia tour to witches

Check out the special exhibition from anywhere in the world

We invite you to experience one of the darkest chapters in European history online.

This virtual and multimedial tour through the special exhibition „Luther and the Witches“ is dedicated to the history of the belief in witches and the crime of sorcery, from its early beginnings through to the end of the major witch hunts in the 17th century. Special focus is placed on the person of Martin Luther and his statements for and against the belief in witches. In addition the exhibition presents the Reformation and the witch hunts in Franconia and in Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

Visitors are presented with a tangible portrayal of Martin Luther, his era and the fears and hopes of people from the 14th to the 17th centuries by means of more than 100 valuable exhibits and detailed explanations.

Our special exhibition „With the sword or strong faith“ – Luther and the Witches is now available as a virtual Tour.
