Experience a diverse tour to sinful places and learn about changing moral values over the centuries. While homosexuality and brothel visits were socially acceptable in Roman times, they were illegal and punishable during the Middle Ages.

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.

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

Very interesting and great story!

It was a lot of fun for us despite the winter weather! Our guide was great! She spoke really exciting and captivating and you could really put yourself in the times and stories. And it's great when they are connected to places you've been to so often. Gladly again!
