Full description
Experience Düsseldorf from a different perspective as you join a night watchman at the end of the day and take a stroll through the historical Altstadt (Old Town). Venture down the romantic lanes and see the streets and buildings illuminated after dark by the glow of the atmospheric lanterns.  Follow a guide equipped with a hand lantern, horn and halberd, as in days of old, and admire his typical gown and costume. Listen intently to interesting tales and hear juicy details of the customs and everyday life of the olden days. When the watchman cries, ‘Hark, ye folks," it is time to explore!

    Mir hat es riesig gut gefallen, bei Vollmond eine Exklusiv-Führung bekommen zu haben. Wir sind pünktlich gestartet und ich bekam eine rundum informativen Rundgang durch die Altstadt von Düsseldorf. Egal, was ich nachgefragt habe, Nachtwächter Bernd konnte immer kompetent antworten. Humorvoll, charmant und geistreich - also unbedingt buchen! empfohlen von Simone 🙂👍

    Die Nachtwächterwanderung hat genau unsere Erwartungen erfüllt. Der Nachtwächter war total authentisch - ein echter Düsseldorfer! Die Wanderung war zudem sehr informativ und in der Dämmerung wurde atmosphärisch alles zu einer runden Sache. Ein schöner Betriebsausflug für uns - gerne wieder!

    Ich hatte meinem Mann anlässlich seines 60. Geburtstags diese Tour geschenkt und er fand es super! Unser Nachtwächter Michael hat uns wirklich mit Herzblut geführt und sein Düsseldorf näher gebracht. Es war sehr informativ und dabei total humorig! Danke!
