    A great tour through Leipzig with interesting facts, funny anecdotes and lots and lots of humor! With great puns (and the necessary portion of Saxon dialect) the most interesting cornerstones in Leipzig's old town were presented and explained. Packed in humorous memories from 1799, important parts of the city's history were also explained. Super nice tour, definitely worth a recommendation!

    In German only!

    Watchman Bremme is very nice and entertaining storyteller. We forgot the rainy weather as he led our group enthusiastly through the city centre, stopping at historical sights. We found out that the language is just in German which I could not understand. Luckily my husband knows a little German and he could follow it. So hope that this tour can be in English as well, we would come back for that. Maybe some texts in English? We would recommend this tour for any native German speaker. You’ll have lots of fun with Bremme’s stories and play of words.

    An den gestrigen Tag standen 2 Nachtwächter am Treffpunkt. Den einen, der unser in Empfang genommen hatte, kannte ich von meiner letzten Tour und ich habe innerlich gehofft, dass er die Tour führen wird. Leider war es dann der andere Nachtwächter. Warum leider, weil der andere Nachtwächter sich nicht wie gewohnt in die Rolle versetzte, sondern eher wie bei einer Stadtführung erklärte und dies recht unmotiviert. Die Informationen waren dennoch sehr umfangreich und interessant. Da kann man nicht meckern. :D
