Full description
Experience Düsseldorf from a different perspective as you join a night watchman at the end of the day and take a stroll through the historical Altstadt (Old Town). Venture down the romantic lanes and see the streets and buildings illuminated after dark by the glow of the atmospheric lanterns.  Follow a guide equipped with a hand lantern, horn and halberd, as in days of old, and admire his typical gown and costume. Listen intently to interesting tales and hear juicy details of the customs and everyday life of the olden days. When the watchman cries, ‘Hark, ye folks," it is time to explore!

    We really enjoyed the tour through and around the old town of Düsseldorf. Although we've been living in Düsseldorf for a few years, we've learned a lot and seen some corners we've never been to. Even if you think you already know the old town and its history, you will definitely learn a lot. No boring, run-of-the-mill information is given, but lots of interesting details. Thanks to this tour and the friendly night watchman guide, we learned to love Düsseldorf even more :)

    My wife, my daughter and I took part in this city tour in Düsseldorf last Thursday and were all very enthusiastic. This was mainly due to our night watchman (Michael), who passed on his knowledge to us with a lot of humor in connection with acting skills. His matching antique clothing and the accessories he carried with him also made the night tour a great experience. We are happy to recommend this city tour.

    Booked as a surprise for my girlfriend, the evening walk with the very entertaining night attendant was absolutely recommendable. We had a lot of fun and learned new things about Düsseldorf and its history. In addition, the night watchman himself has a really pleasant voice that you would like to hear longer. If you still have doubts, do it.
