      In German only!

      Watchman Bremme is very nice and entertaining storyteller. We forgot the rainy weather as he led our group enthusiastly through the city centre, stopping at historical sights. We found out that the language is just in German which I could not understand. Luckily my husband knows a little German and he could follow it. So hope that this tour can be in English as well, we would come back for that. Maybe some texts in English? We would recommend this tour for any native German speaker. You’ll have lots of fun with Bremme’s stories and play of words.

      In fast allen großen Städten, die ich mir ansehe, buche ich immer die Nachtwächtertour. Ich muss ehrlich sagen, in Leipzig war diese besonders gut und vor allem Unterhaltsam. Der Nachtwächter (der mit seinen wilden Bart auch sogar echt aussah) war von Anfang an in seiner Rolle und hat uns mit seinen bildhaften Erzählungen mit in seine Zeit genommen. Meine Frau und ich waren von diesem Nachwächter absolut begeistert. Wir können den Rundgang jedem mit gutem Gewissen weiterempfehlen. Viel Spaß Euch lieben Nachtwächterbegleiter.

      Die Tour mit Nachtwächter Bremme war einfach klasse! Er hat uns mitgenommen auf eine Zeitreise in das 18. Jahrhundert und hat das ganze sehr authentisch und unterhaltsam gestaltet. Er war voll in seiner Rolle und man hat ihm auch angemerkt, dass er selbst richtig Spaß daran hatte. Würde ich auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen :)
