Guided tour:

DUNGEONS

Medieval jurisdiction

Being thrown into the dungeon was usually tantamount to death. The medieval dungeons in the vaulted cellars of Nuremberg’s City Hall are unique in Germany.

From the fourteenth century, they were used to hold and question prisoners pending judgement. Twelve small cells and a torture chamber provide an oppressive insight into medieval jurisdiction.
