Full description
Experience a diverse tour to sinful places and learn about changing moral values over the centuries.

Listen to grim stories about times when lust and passion were used as a means to an end, and sometimes as motives for murder and manslaughter. Learn more about sexuality in the Middle Ages and listen to the stories about easy girls and dark fellows on this entertaining tour. Hear about how the Romans dealt with sexuality and how attitudes towards lust and passion changed in the Middle Ages. Find out what happened to adulterers and what was going on in the town baths. Follow the trail of crimes of passion and explore the cathedral city in a unique way.

    The tour itself was very informative, the manager was very nice and presented many interesting examples in a playful way, which brought the tour to life. However, it was very difficult to listen for two hours while standing, because given the circumstances that there was a lot going on in the area and the cathedral bell was ringing very loudly, I could hardly follow the narrator. In my opinion, an hour would be enough for such a tour.

    Does what it says on the tin

    We were lucky enough to have a private tour, no one else had registered for this tour. So we roam five (including tour guide Ina) through Cologne and tell all kinds of interesting stories about sex and violence. Can anyone interested in this tour, it was very entertaining and we all had fun
