Night watchman Peter brought us closer to the history of Munich in dialect. With consistently exciting and some informative facts, scary stories and humor, he has drawn a detailed picture of the life of a night watchman in Munich over the last thousand years. We enjoyed the tour with him and saw Munich from a different side. Definitely worth a recommendation!
