Bremen: Walking Tour in German with Night Guard
- Duration: 1.5 hours
Discover the dark streets of Bremen accompanied by a night guard carrying a lantern, horn and axe. But be careful to stay with your group since no one knows what might happen. Learn more about the city's exciting past on a walking tour. Find out more about historical misconducts and the long-gone times of Bremen, an old Hanseatic city. Listen to stories unknown to the ordinary citizen, as only the night guard checked the proper closing of doors and gates. Travel back in time and visit the Bremen Market Square and the Böttcherstraße up to the Schnoor while listening to the tales told by the night guard.
Follow the night watchman on his tour through the city after dark. Let him give you an account of his duty and the untoward activities he is confronted with every night. Learn what everyday life, food and drink, childhood and school were like in past centuries. Listen to the watchman’s stories, as he takes you from Bremen market square through the Böttcherstraße to the Schnoor. Beware not to lose your group, though. Because if you do, you might easily be suspected of having committed a crime or fall victim to of one of the many dangers unbeknownst to today. At the end of the tour, back in present-day Bremen, you will have learned a lot about the long gone history of the old Hanseatic city as the night watchman, who makes sure doors and city gates are properly locked, will be able to tell tales of things the honest citizen woulnd't even know existed.

We Bückeburgers have already been to Bremen a few times. But the exciting stories of the 'night watchman' were an enrichment, probably for each of the inquisitive visitors to learn about history, bizarre and piquant things about the medieval life of the city of Bremen. The tour through the wonderful alleys of the Schnoorviertel with the half-timbered and artfully brick houses was a real pleasure. Visitors to the city of Bremen should definitely miss this experience! Always my pleasure!
Overall a successful tour. The group was not too big, so you could follow the guide's stories very well. Our guide, Marcus with "c"! was really great. One noticed that he enjoyed the tour. He didn't just tell, he integrated the group. Definitely recommend the tour!
Definitely a local Bremener with an engaging sense of humour that got the tour participants involved and he painted a believable portrait of Bremen's past from the perspective of a night guard.
Great, we really liked it. The night watchman did it really well and with a joke for the children.
Such a great tour through the city center of Bremen. Would recommend it to everybody :)
