Of monks, bones, rotten teeth

Weinheim is an interesting and colourful city, but how did people live here 600 years ago? Why was a city wall actually necessary at that time? And did people just eat grilled meat on the spit? These and many other questions will be answered by the museum educator and city guide Matthias Wildmann. And to make it not only an exciting but also a lively journey through time, he has many original finds in his luggage. This explains, for example, why people had bad breath back then, or why a monk's back often hurt. So it will not only be exciting, but also educational and fun. It is an interesting time in the Middle Ages, but whether one would really have liked to live at that time, the children have to ask themselves this question at the end of the guided tour.
