Full description
Meet your night watchman guide in Marienplatz, then travel back in time where your adventure begins. Follow your guide through the dark alleys of Munich, and listen to the tales of the ghosts and ghouls that still haunt these streets. Learn how during the Middle Ages, it was the night watchman’s duty to maintain order and peace in the city, as well as to protect the citizens from thieves, murderers, and enemies. Hear how each night he would close the city gates and call the striking of the hour. During the walking tour, the night watchman will guide you to some of the most prominent historical locations and buildings in the city. By the end of the tour, you’ll have a new perspective of Munich, and a few tales to take home.

Great Tour! Dedicated guide! It was very entertaining and also quite interesting! I can only recommend it! Honest dealings with customers - prior call to advise that CSD is taking place on our scheduled day and the tour will be a little more limited. Rebooking or canceling would have been possible without any problems.

With a torch through Munich's old town, that's fun :-)). With a lot of humor and wit, the "night watchman" told the stories about buildings, dungeons, etc. that cannot be found in any travel guide. Almost 2 hours, which unfortunately passed much too quickly. Language problems were also dealt with very individually, which was great.

We were lucky to have a tour just to ourselves. So we could feel like VIP guests. The tour was very entertaining and informative. We learned a lot about life in the Middle Ages and were then very happy that we are allowed to live in today's world. The time passed very quickly and we say thank you and keep it up.
