This was a prison. It was interesting and the thought of how torture was given gave me the chills. Unfortunately a guided tour is only offerred with at least 5 people. Other drawback is that it is in german.

Underneath the Rathaus, near the Castle, you can go and see the Old Dungeons. The rooms are very well preserved. It would be ideal if only small groups can visit at once the dungeons, because the space is quite small.

prison is located underneath the town hall and can only be visited as part of a guided tour. Our guide was excellent and her knowledge impressive as her commentary really brought the prison to ife particularily the horrific conditions in which the residents were detained

It was a prison (torture chamber) in medievil times. It does not contain any prisoners anymore. Tourists visit it to learn about a terrible history of in humane treatment. Located under old city hall in Nuremberg.
