7 Most Haunted Locations in Europe

7 Most Haunted Locations in Europe

Posted by


Many of those brave enough to visit these
places have said that they never want to go back. These are 7 of the most haunted locations
in Europe. Today’s video was done in collaboration with
Nightmare Fuel. More on that later. Number 7: The Catacombs in Paris
Beneath the surface of one of the most famous cities in the world, there is a vast network
of tunnels and mine shafts. The bones and skulls of over six million people
are stacked in this underground maze. The decision to place the dead here was taken
in the 18th century when Paris was faced with overflowing cemeteries and a series of cave-ins. During the French Revolution, the dead were
‘buried’ directly in the catacombs. Tourists are welcomed to explore the place
but they are encouraged to stay with the group for it is very easy to get lost. At the main entrance visitors are warned ‘Stop! This Is The Empire of The Dead!’ Throughout the years there have been many
stories of people going into the catacombs and never finding their way back. It is said that the mine shafts serve as the
actual entrance to hell. The tunnels stretch for miles, there is no
cell phone service and if one is to stray from the group, dying alone in the dark is
a real possibility. Visitors have claimed hearing voices and footsteps
that echo throughout the catacombs. Paranormal investigators have captured the
image of a silhouette, whom they believed to be the catacombs’ architect, roaming
the tunnels of the ossuary he had designed several centuries earlier. Number 6: Chateau de Brissac
The tallest castle in France is home to one of the most famous ghosts in the world, La
Dame Verte, or the Green Lady. At one point during the 15tt century, when
he returned to the castle, nobleman Jacque de Breze found his wife Charlotte of France
in bed with one of her huntsmen. The events that followed have been provided
with two versions. One has Jacque killing Charlotte and her lover
with a hundred strikes of his sword. The other has him strangling Charlotte in
the Brissac Chapel Tower later that day. Whatever the truth might have been, Jacque
was imprisoned and the castle was eventually owned by the Duke of Brissac. Before long the duke and his family started
to notice the presence of a lady in a green dress who wondered the halls of the castle. It was believed that the lady was Charlotte’s
ghost. Her face was described as that of a corpse,
with gaping holes where her eyes and nose should be. Nowadays, the current Duke of Brissac has
said that he and his family have grown accustomed to sightings of the ghost. Two suites in the castle have been made available
to the public if they wish to spend the night. Some visitors have reported seeing The Green
Lady while others have claimed hearing her moans from the room where she was supposedly
killed. Number 5: The Ancient Ram Inn in Gloucester
England The Ancient Ram Inn was built in 1154 and
throughout the years it has served as a priest’s residence, a public house and ultimately an
inn. The land on which it sits is situated at the
intersection of two major Ley Lines. Certain paranormal experts claim that these
lines contain a significant amount of spiritual energy. On a map these particular areas have been
traced back to Stonehenge, the most famous sacred site in England. It is believed that the energy which flows
through the lines feed the inn’s paranormal activity. It is said that at one point during the 16th
century a witch took refuge in one of the rooms, before she was found and burned at
the stake. This happened at the height of persecution
against those who did not practice Christianity. The room still exists today and it is called
The Witch’s Room. The inn’s sole owner, John Humphries, bought
the place in 1968. He claimed that one night, after he had gone
to sleep, a demonic force took hold of his arm and dragged him across the room. He had also found evidence of human sacrifices
and Devil worship. Under the staircase he stumbled upon the skeletons
of children with broken daggers inside of them. It is believed that they had been part of
satanic sacrifices and that the daggers had been broken so that they could never be used
again. Visitors who spent the night at the B&B reported
hearing the sound of children screaming. Others claimed that they had been held down
by invisible forces. After news about the haunted inn started to
circulate, waves of curious visitors and paranormal investigators started coming in. A child’s scream was even captured on video
along with the voice of a man urging the inn’s visitors to ‘Get out!’ Others have reported that the wooden beams
started vibrating when they touched them and that objects from the house started to hover. Some of the visitors got so scared that they
jumped from the inn’s first-story window. John Humphries’ daughter Caroline, who now
runs the inn, told interviewers that as a child she got so scared that she would sleep
in a caravan outside the inn. Number 4: Moosham Castle
Also known as ‘Witches Castle’, the Moosham Castle in Salzburg, Austria dates back to
the 12 century. Between 1675 and 1687 some of the most gruesome
witch trials in Austrian history took place on the castle’s premises. Those found guilty of practicing witchcraft
were tortured and then executed. Some of them were beheaded while others had
their hands cut off. The vast majority of the victims were reportedly
under the age of 21. It is said that their spirits still haunt
the castle and its surroundings. Between 1715 and 1717 the live stock around
the area was constantly attacked by numerous packs of wolves. The locals started to form hunting parties
with the purpose of finding the beasts and killing them. However, those who went searching for the
wolves never came back. Before long it was suspected that they had
either been mauled to death by the beasts or that they had become beasts themselves. People suspected of being werewolves were
imprisoned in the castle and afterwards they were trialed and killed. Members of television shows who have attempted
to document the paranormal activity taking place at Moosham Castle have spoken about
being able to see, hear and even feel the presence of ghosts. Number 3: The Edinburgh Castle
The Edinburgh Castle is considered by many to be the most haunted fortress in the world. The castle’s bloody heritage is considered
to be one of the factors behind the reports of paranormal activity. Throughout its 900 year history it has been
the site of many imprisonments, executions and surprise attacks. People stricken by the plague were sent to
the castle’s dungeons where they were left to die. Lady Janet Douglas of Glamis was one of the
fortress’ prisoners before she was burned at the stake for witchcraft in 1537 while
her young son was forced to watch. Before the fortress was under siege from Oliver
Cromwell in 1650, the ghost of a headless drummer boy reportedly appeared before those
inside the castle as a warning. In 2001 the Edinburgh Castle served as the
location for one of the largest paranormal experiments in history. None of the 200 participants were told which
areas of the castle were reportedly haunted. The vast majority of them reported seeing
shadowy figures, feeling sudden drops in temperature and that someone or something was pulling
at their clothes. Number 2: Hoia-Baciu Forest
The Hoia-Baciu Forest, located near Cluj-Napoca, Romania is considered by some to be the world’s
most haunted forest. It was named after a shepherd that had disappeared
in the area along with a flock of two hundred sheep. The forest is often referred to as Romania’s
Bermuda Triangle. A number of unexplained apparitions and ghost
sightings have been reported by those who ventured deep into the forest. Visitors have also claimed feeling as though
they were being watched along with other physical sensations such as nausea, anxiety, migraines
and vomiting. Among the strange phenomena that visitors
have described is also the way in which they experience the passing of time. One story told by locals is of a little girl
who had gotten lost in the forest when she was 5, only to emerge five years later wearing
the same clothes and having no recollection of what had happened to her. It is said that in the Hoia-Baciu Forest the
wind speaks, and some visitors have also reported hearing female voices and laughter. Paranormal explorers from around the world
have been fascinated by the forest for years. They were able to capture ethereal faces and
shapes on film and in photographs. Such sightings have been reported by visitors
as well. Many of them have also emerged out of the
wood with unexplainable rashes, cuts and burns. The forest has a clearing in the shape of
an almost perfect circle where vegetation never grows. Soil samples have been taken from the area
but nothing that would prevent the growth of plant life has been found. It is believed that the circular plateau is
where the spirits gather. Other theories have shaped the notion that
it might be the entrance to another dimension. Photos taken there have revealed the outlines
of human figures, ghostly silhouettes and hovering shapes. People living in the area do not enter the
forest for fear that they might never return home. Number 1: Poveglia Island
This small island is located between Venice and Lido in Italy’s Venetian Lagoon. When the Bubonic Plague (also known as the
Black Plague) swept through the European continent in the 14th century, Poveglia, like many other
small islands, became a quarantine colony. People who showed symptoms of the disease
were exiled on the island. For many this would prove to be a death sentence. Those too weak to oppose resistance were burned
together with the dead on giant pyres located at the center of the island. Others were buried or dumped into large pits. The fires burned once more in 1630 after the
Black Death had returned to the mainland, and Poveglia again became a dumping ground
for Venice’s sick and desperate. The number of people that have died on the
island is so great, that its core is still lined with human remains. The charred bodies mixed with the soil to
create a thick layer of ash. It is believed that more than 160.000 dead
bodies are embedded in Poveglia’s land mass. Despite the island’s dark history, in 1922,
a psychiatric hospital was built on its premises. Before long patients started to complain about
seeing the ghosts of plague victims and that, at night, they could hear the wails and cries
of tormented souls. The hospital staff ignored their complaints
assuming they were hallucinations caused by their medical conditions. It is rumored that one of the hospital’s
head physicians performed a series of gruesome experiments on some of the patients in an
attempt to find cures for their mental disorders. The horrors that they endured included lobotomies
which were executed with the use of hammers, hand drills and chisels. Most of the experiments reportedly took place
in the hospital’s bell tower. It is also said that after some time the doctor
began seeing ghosts as well. One night they led him to the bell tower where
he had tortured so many people and pushed him off. According to the legend the fall didn’t
kill him. As he laid on the ground screaming with pain,
a mist appeared out of the ground and choked the life out of him. Nowadays tourism is banned on Poveglia Island. Fishermen from the neighboring areas are hesitant
to cast their lines in the water around the island for fear that it might still be contaminated
with human remains. The Italian government have been unsuccessful
in their attempts of finding a private buyer for the island. The few people that manage to avoid police
patrols and actually set foot on the island have described their experience as terrifying. They have claimed hearing disembodied screams
and moans as well as feeling an evil presence. One traveler talked about hearing a clear
voice saying ‘Leave immediately and do not return.’

  1. I like how they section them off by continent. I hate seeing top ten most haunted places in the world and 9 of them are in America….

  2. About Poveglia… The one that owns it now has abandoned his plans to make the hospital into a hotel. He was forced to leave the island after getting scratched. He still owns it, but he will not set foot on the island.

  3. You know what the most scary thing is? Going to another tab with the music up then getting jumpscared. Now THAT'S scary

  4. Not bad, but….I dont see why you put photos in that are not related to the places your talking about. We dont need dramatizations like the 20th century hospital one you threw in while speaking of poveilga. We want to see real pictures and hear the story, even if the pic stays up for 5 secs. overall nice job

  5. Werewolves exist. But they are not in alps.oni are in North America, South America, Ireland and the UK

  6. Satanism is not about spooks and scares. Nevertheless the mass control the minds of the sheepeople

  7. Why do we see photo's that has nothing to do with the subject, like one of Bergen Belsen and the one one 9.21 of burning corpses? We can not take this type of video seriously with this fraud.

  8. You should have mentioned marston moor in England. It was the sight of one of the bloodiest battles of the English civil war and is one of the most haunted places in England

  9. brooooooo…I'm never going to the castle the green man is scarey and green lady I got a wierd feeling I'm going now

  10. There's like a tight cave hole on a cliff right next to the river near my place.
    My uncle told me how he used to throw rocks inside the cave and they would just come back at him, pretty weird.

  11. Please use pictures that have to do with the places you talk about, the use of random material together with actual pictures is totally misleading, as it makes it unclear what are pictures that have actually been taken there, and have to do with the place and what not. Especially talking about the part on Poveglia here.

  12. Great video and some truly creepy places especially Poveglia Island in Venice. I really plan to visit here to photograph it – Venice is such an atmospheric place I'm convinced many ghosts haunt it – please take a look at #negative29a

  13. I can think of way more haunted places in Edinburgh than the Castle. Mary Kings Close, The Vaults is creepy as hell (stuff happened to me down there), and don't even get me started on the Covenanters Prison. That place is so haunted that the council made it illegal to enter because people were being straight up attacked by the MacKenzie poltergeist. There is a ghost tour which goes there which is run by the only people in the entire city who have the key and are allowed to go in.

  14. like this comment if the picture on the left side of the thumbnail looks like the scary girl from the ring

  15. I recently went to CNN's world top 7 scariest places in the world: Gonjiam Psychiatric Asylum… scary even in broad daylight…I can't even tell who or what the footsteps in the video came from….. https://youtu.be/hqTW8jsZ2uA

  16. the hoia baciu circle when I searched it up I kinda see a pentagram maybe that's why few plant life grow…

  17. the forest one…how would she go missing at 5 years old be found five years later wearing same clothes haha they would be too small

  18. When exploring or communicating with elementals, hidden people, gnomes, etc. we can and should protect ourselves to recite this mantra of protection from Tibet 108 times a day: Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha. It is important that we protect ourselves always. You can get more information here bit(dot)ly/DSretreat

  19. I would like to visit the last island though since I don't believe in ghosts and/or spirits and maybe it would change my mind but I doubt it. For all I know those "screams" come from speakers to keep people who slip past the police off the island. Sounds more logical than ghosts to me even though it sounds dumb. Not as dumb as evil spirits.

  20. What's up with these European demonic lunatics, their favorite pastime is killing and Satan worship…see the pattern?

  21. My friend taught me to recite this powerful Tibetan mantra 108 times daily to protect myself from negative energies: OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA. Learn more from here: bit*%(dot)**ly/DSretreat

  22. In French, "La Dame Vert" is pronounced "LAH DAHM VAYR". A's are usually an "AH" sound, while ER is usually an "AY" sound (as in "hay" or "they")… And T's at the end of words are silent (unless followed by an E at the end of the word).

  23. Amy's crypt has visited most of these locations… She spent the night in Hoia Baciu with her husband in just a sleeping bag 😱 crazy brave!

  24. I don't like the fact that you use world war II photos of concentration camp victims for your video when it has nothing to do with that
