Stay of Execution – uncensored



guided tour
2 hours

Join us in exploring Lucerne’s dark secrets. 

You will learn about 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 are showing it in the Historical Museum.
