Guided Tour: Stay of Execution – uncensored



guided tour
Discover the dark secrets of the city of Lucerne. Get to know the history of the penal system in a pure and uncensored way, take a courageous step into the medieval dungeon in the water tower, hear about customs and punishments and see where the pillory and Trülli stood on original sites.

Don't worry, the guillotine from 1862 is no longer in use, but we show it in the Historical Museum before we take a closer look at the former central prison.
