Was a nice tour with a fair amount of building sightseeing and commentary!

Unfortunately, the guide didn't manage to "tie" me up. She seemed unmotivated to me. I also found the group to be too large. The lecture had often already started before the last people had unlocked.

Walk mainly through the park at the ZOO and a few more streets through the city.
