The meeting point for the 2-hour tour in the Grand Hotel is perfect, you don't have to wait in the cold! Our tour guide was a woman, she was very punctual at the meeting point! Her explanations in German were very informative, humorous and easy to understand. It took us to places that we would never have found on our own and that are not mentioned in any travel guides. We also got suggestions for good restaurants and additional objects worth seeing, which we could then see on our own. She was able to answer all of our questions, it was a shame that the tour together came to an end!
Dagmar, our tour guide, was really personable. She has told a lot about the city. Got to know the old town even better. Discovered new places and can collect a lot of information. She even exceeded the planned time of 2 hours and also showed us restaurants, which are highly recommended. Simply great Dagmar you should read the review. Thank you Thank you Thank you Katja and Jens
The walk was fun and interesting. Just a pity that there was not much to see about functionalism.
Delightful, knowledgeable lady who was well versed in local history
