Visit the paranormal, the mystic and the macabre and relive the stories of ghost soldiers of Moravian College, the legend of Liesel and Lafayette and many more. Historic Haunts of Downtown Bethlehem will take you on a journey into the past and the paranormal. Experienced tour guides will escort you through the darkened streets of Bethlehem's Downtown Historic District with only a candle to light your way. You will hear the tales of ghostly soldiers who patrol Moravian College. You will find out who or what haunts the oldest bookstore in the country.
Tours begin and end at the Moravian Book Shop with ten stops in the Downtown Historic District of Bethlehem. The tours last approximately 1 hour and leave on time. Walk-ins are welcome during Tour hours but reservations are recommended. Ticket holders should arrive 10 to 15 minutes before their scheduled tour to collect their tickets and candles. Comfortable shoes are recommended since the tour covers about 1 mile of walking with stops over some areas of brick and uneven pavement. Tours run during rain or moonlight unless the weather is dangerous.
Video and audio recordings of any kind are prohibited but still photography is encouraged on the Ghost Tour. The tour is not recommended for young children because it requires 1 hour of walking and standing.
