Book tickets

The tour against misbelief! With actor in the role of "Johannes Pistorius the Younger"

Around 1600: countless "witches" are burned, even little girls are not spared the terror. The Freiburg doctor and theologian Johannes Pistorius the Younger (1546 - 1608) takes you to the bloody scenes and familiarizes you with fanatical worshippers. But he also tells you about dangerous orifices and introduces you to the quirks of Habsburg emperors. It's shocking, instructive - and even funny!

Meeting point: main portal of St. Martin's Church (on Rathausplatz)
Duration: approx. 105 minutes

Exciting tour about the time of the witch hunts and the (Counter)Reformation. An actor takes on the role of the restless spirit of Johannes Pistorius the Younger, a fascinating Freiburg personality who has (almost) disappeared from the city's memory. He was very famous and influential during his lifetime, even making it to the emperor's court, and in Freiburg he courageously intervened in the witchcraft craze.

This tour is suitable for people aged 16 and over.
