Witches and Heroines
A historical guided tour – not only for, but about women!
Follow us in search of Kronach’s women of the 14th to 19th century. Women like the “Wierzweiber”, the “Trebern-Messerinnen”, the “Malzdörrerinnen”, the “Trosserinnen”, the cooks of the infirmary, the healers, the wise women or the wild woman.
You’ll get to know incredible facts e.g. about “Hexenriecher” (witch smellers), the old church chastity and morality, the first female teacher in Kronach and her problems.
Who visited the questionable spinning rooms? What do the images tell us at the Michaelsbrunnen? How did soldier’s women live? Come with us to the Upper Town on a journey through time!
