Demonology Tour - Trier and the Witch Burnings

In the 16th and 17th centuries, Trier was a center of the witch hunts in Germany. But also here in Trier, a decisive step was taken to overcome this scourge of humanity. The courageous crusader against the witch hysteria, Friedrich Spee, worked for several years in Trier and found his final resting place in the Trier Jesuit Church. The walking tour begins at the Simeon’s College at the Porta Nigra, goes through the medieval city to the Cathedral, the pillory and Roman Imperial Throne Room (Basilika) and ends at the grave of Friedrich Spee.
