The dishonest and accordingly still single Hangman tells his tales of Devil’s work and witches’ magic, and his fruitless search for a hangman’s daughter to wed. He’ll show you enchanted sights and offer protective amulets, bones, and healing tinctures. He remains ever vigilant against the “witch’s shot”.

A historically based and vibrant journey through the lore of justice, healing, and superstitions of yore. The tour doesn’t require it to be dark because in the Dark Ages people believed in spirits during the day too. Suitable for children aged eight and older.
