Dive into the eerie history of Heidelberg with this immersive audio tour. Tailored for those with a curiosity for the darker side of the past, this walking adventure brings to life the chilling experiences linked to the Hangman's Daughter. It's an exploration that connects somber tales with the very streets that hold them. Starting at the historical Town Hall, the narrative unfolds through the old town, tracing the legacy of the hangman’s profession—feared, respected, and nearly forgotten today. The journey ends at the Marstall Stable, once filled with the sounds of horses and whispers of the past. Along the way, discover the compelling Church of the Holy Spirit, pass under the Karl's Gate, ponder at the Old Bridge, and meet the Bridge Monkey. The path then leads to the Witches' Tower, the playful Student Jail, the intellectual University Square, and the panoramic King's Throne. Each stop seeps with stories that transport you back in time, giving a unique perspective of the city, infused with secrets and legends. Touch the ancient stones, close your eyes by the tower, and feel history come alive. The Hangman's Daughter may be a phantom of bygone times, but the echoes of her world still linger. This tour invites you to experience these echoes, leave the present behind for a moment, and roam through the hidden narratives of Heidelberg, where every corner holds a mystery to be uncovered.
