Witches, Rascals, and Poor Devils:
Unusual bits from Heidelberg’s legal history
Executions used to be popular local highlights. In 1762 the University was closed for a day so that students could witness one – an experience that was expected to have a beneficial effect on their behaviour. A “true witch” accompanies you through centuries of amusing regulations and gruesome punishments. Not for children or for those with weak nerves!
