Dresden: The Original Night Watchman Tour in Lantern Light

With his halberd, he protects the honorable citizens from vagabonds and shady characters even in the darkest corners. Look forward to an entertaining tour with spooky stories and juicy anecdotes from centuries past. Furthermore, take a look at the beautiful sights of the city. See the Semper Opera House and the famous Zwinger, walk over the palace square, and get a glimpse of the Brühlschen Terrassen.

We had the night watchman Klaus, this very likeable and funny man is great and can only be recommended... if there were 8 stars, he would have earned them! We had a lot of fun and laughed a lot. And we also learned a lot about the history of Dresden because he told it so well...thanks again for this great regards Michael from Lower Saxony...

wirklich tolle Führung mit unser wunderbaren nachtwaechterin (ich glaube Wahl mit Nachnamen) - originell, interessant. für unsere 11 jährigen Zwillinge und 14j. Teenager war es etwas zu lang, aber sie fanden es insgesamt auch toll. viele interessante Geschichten für erstmalige Dresdenbesucher - absolut zu empfehlen.

the tour with the night watchman (oh dear his name... Ger... not Klaus) was SUPER! we learned a lot about the history of the city, country and people, were not overloaded during the march through the old town and were well prepared with the starter drink anyway. Great guide, thanks again!!

Our night watchman Klaus gave us an entertaining tour of beautiful Dresden. We had a lot of fun and got a lot of information about Dresden at the same time. The time flew by. Clear recommendation!

Hab die Tour jetzt schon zum zweiten Mal gemacht und würde es immer wieder machen. Man sieht die schönsten Flecken in Dresden und erfährt einiges darüber.
