“Dark ages to experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

Creepy place, and giving no good feeling. But that´s not what it is for.
You can learn a lot about history, and all the time feel thankful, you´re born in another time - not like one of these unlucky ones, who were thrown, imprisoned and tortured there...
Take a guided tour and give yourself some shivers...

“Beware of tour restrictions”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

My husband and I live about an hour from Nuremberg, so we have attempted twice now to go to this sight. The first time, a Saturday evening, it was closed and the second time it was open but we did not have enough people to go to see the torture exhibit. Very sad because this was one of my top 5 things to see in Nuremberg.. The lady at the office didn't speak English but I gathered the total info and you have to have a minimum of 5 people in your group to go down to the prison. They do have some information in the lobby, pictures, documents, posters, but all in German. :( Really bummed out that we couldn't go down. Hopefully we can in the future.

“Must know German”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Fortunatly we had someone in our tour group that spoke both languages and was able to translate most of the information. There is a pamphlet in various languages that you can use to guide yourself too. The overall experience was interesting. You are able to go into rooms and see how the prison system was before. You will not regret going to this attraction if you don't mind following along with your pamphlet.

“Step back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

Wonder what is was like to be imprisonned in the medivial? Step back in time and make a guided tour. Learn about what was considered a crime and the punishments. Not recommended for small children.
