What people are saying about Stralsund, Germany

A very informative and entertaining city tour with a very good balance of data and anecdotes. We liked it a lot and we are happy to recommend it. Of course, you can't see the entire city in 1.5 hours. The city guide solved this very well by explaining the rest of the city model. It should also be emphasized that the tour took place even though there were only two of us.

We did a very informative tour with lots of details. Stralsund was brought very close to us, with a lot of background information.

Very pleasant course, friendly guide who answered questions and knew how to convey many anecdotes

Mr. Köhn led us very well over Rügen and flexibly adapted the tour to us.
