Full description
Discover the old town of Cologne at dusk and join a night guard on a walking tour through the city.

When the townspeople go to sleep, it's the time of the night guard. Follow your guide in the flickering light of sooty lanterns, and listen to scary stories and legendary myths from times long past.

Take part in a walking tour through the shadowy underside of Cologne. Meet villains and shady people, as well as other scary characters who are waiting for you in ancient places. Follow the night guard along lonely paths and past hidden corners in the dark of the night, and discover some of the city's 2000-year-old history.
