Salzburg after Dark is a one of a kind tour that takes you around the city when the sun has set. The city looks very different at night as there are many legends and stories that are associated with the historic city. Hear all the chilling stories and get to see some of the greatest attractions that are sure to make your trip worthwhile.
The focus will be on the witch trials and torture of the 17th century. There are also blood-curdling stories to be told about St. Peter's cemetery and, of course, the Hohensalzburg Fortress. The "White Woman" is supposed to have haunted the fortress especially at full moon until finally the whole place was illuminated at night and she disappeared.
The town hall, the Waagplatz, and the New Residence are further stops on our journey. These places have dark histories as prisons, torture chambers, and places of execution. You will shudder to hear about torture practices and why alleged sorcerers and witches had their hair shorn and were washed with holy water.
Let yourself be bewitched and come along on an eerie walk through Salzburg in the dark…
