Wander through the maze of dark alleys on this 2-hour night tour and see the legends of yesteryear brought to life. The further you proceed, the closer you get to the dark side of Bonn. Listen to scary stories as you are guided by the night watchman.
What to Expect
Participants will hear scary stories about ghosts and devils that originate from the times when the Black Death stalked the streets, when witches were hunted and the city was violently sacked. During these times it was the night watchmen who guarded the city walls, with the intent to keep away death and destruction. Experience the times when the night still held a mystical spell.
There is always a kernel of truth that distinguishes the legends from fictional fairy tales. People often look for an explanation for mysterious happenings. These stories have been passed down to our times over the centuries.
If you are brave enough, you can be a part of these legends and stories on a night tour of Bonn. Your night watchman will protect you and lead you safely back to daylight.
The night represents mystery, death, and mortality – but also silence. In earlier times a specific occupational groups undertook their work at night: the night watchmen. Night watchmen have been in Bonn since the 17th century; they have wandered the dark streets and along the city walls to provide security.
