Full description
Join a special kind of tour of selected criminal cases and crime scenes from different centuries. See contemporary witnesses and participants describe the cases from their points of view. On this tour you will also have a closer look at the sights of Mannheim, and an opportunity to learn about the general history of the city.  What did the shy student with the dagger want when he visited the famous poet August von Kotzebue? What made a lawyer become an armed revolutionary? What made the profession of executioner so dangerous? These and other questions are asked and answered on your walk through the scenes of mysterious and unexplained criminal cases in Mannheim. You will feel both shudders and amazement, guaranteed. The commissary takes you and your guests on a forensic search for clues about terrible crimes. The charming daughter of the Mannheim hangman and Prussian grenadiers who are hot on your heels can be there to assist the investigation, at an additional charge.
