Rothenburg: Private 1-Hour Night Watchman Tour

1. Rothenburg: Private 1-Hour Night Watchman Tour

Experience Rothenburg ob der Tauber by night while hearing about its medieval past. Learn from your night watchman guide the important duties of a watchman and the greatest dangers a medieval town can face. Wander through tranquil squares and deserted alleys on this private 1-hour tour. Meet your night watchman at the suggested meeting point or be picked up at your hotel or a restaurant of your choice in the Old Town. With a hat, coat, halberd, horn, and lantern, the night watchman will personally welcome you and your group. Join the night watchman on this one-hour evening tour through the old town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Enjoy the tranquility of the almost deserted alleys and the sights of the city in romantic lighting. Listen to the watchman's stories and about life when the Black Death threatened people, as well as torture and cruel punishments. Learn to understand why places of worship, monasteries, and city defense played such an important role and how the city developed. During your tour, you will see the mighty St. James Church as well as the town hall and part of the city walls. A special highlight of the evening is a view of one of the gateways with its high towers. Take the chance to ask your night watchman whatever curiosities you may still have and enjoy a photo session with the night watchman before they say goodbye to you.

Our private tour guide was AMAZING! You can tell he loves history and the town of Rothenburg! He was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions! He gave us more ideas of places to visit and must sees! He even recommended a cute wine shop! I don’t know how he managed this, but our tour timed up perfectly with the clock tower bell and animatronics! It was amazing!

Wonderful experience We had 3 small children in our group that we were worried they would last through the hour our guide was wonderful and engaged the children right off the bat! Fabulous everyone enjoyed the tour

Wonderful evening. Harry was a great guide and made things very interesting for our two girls (9 and 13). An interesting mix of facts and lore. Definitely worth the time and money.

Our guide was Daniel. Really good and informative. In-depth knowledge of history and culture. Also very patient. Waited for us when we were waited. Definitely not to be missed.

Great evening discovering Rothenburg, we learned so much. Thank you
