Join us on a light-hearted walk through dark times. Together with chronicler Nicolaus von Waldighofen and his scribe Peter, we set out on an exciting journey to a time when the earth shook, the city burned, and the Black Death claimed hundreds of lives. The pair put a humorous twist on their reconstruction of these disastrous events from the darkest chapter in Basel's history.
