Really informative city tour that certainly didn't feel long and stuck with me long after it was over. I loved the little anecdotes and history tidbits that you don't really get in standard tours. Our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and dedicated, you could tell he really knew his stuff and was passionate about the city's history. I for one felt like I was in good hands!

A great night watchman tour through Munich Peter, our night watchman, brought us a little closer to the past with wit and knowledge. One of the best night watchman tours I have taken part in in a city, we had a lot of fun and a great tour with Peter, we can only recommend the night watchman tour :-)

Just in time for the start of the tour at 9:30 p.m., it rained lightly to moderately heavily, which gave the tour a mystical quality and made it easier to put yourself back in the Middle Ages and the nocturnal street conditions of the time. The guide was an excellent fit for this time in terms of appearance and habitus. Among other things, he The job of the night watchman with all the bizarre responsibilities before u told, informed very vividly, using the Munich old town area, about this contemporary history. There was also funny, slightly scary stuff. Was really fun.
