    Was a nice entertaining tour. "Grete" (Steffi) was very responsive to us and was also fun for one or the other. A short detour to the mulled wine stand was also possible. Our wishes and needs were addressed. So we were unloaded on time at our location for the rest of the evening ... thank you.

    the leadership was unique

    it was a great tour. Even though there were only two of us, the night watchman did a great job. It was very interesting and fun, we learned a lot of new things. The night watchman also had fun - he was photographed several times and even got a kiss at the Christmas market. Best service, so always recommended.
