Full description
As a child, did you dream of glowing coaches, ghosts, demons, evil spirits, and women dressed in white? Take a nightly tour through the alleys and dark side of Cologne. Your night watchmen will meet you at sunset or midnight, walk ahead of you, bearing torches and educate you on the history of the city through the tales of its spookiest legends.

Over the centuries, the residents of Cologne have told many a scary story. They've spun tales of ghosts and demons, werewolves howling at the moon, evil spirits haunting the souls of the living, and humans themselves committing gruesome deeds. There is always a kernel of truth separating legends from fiction and fairy tales. Legends try to explain the inexplicable. In this spirit, the residents of Köln made up stories, which were often held to be true after several years or decades, and were finally passed down as historical facts.

Learn the history of this fascinating medieval city in a new and interesting way. Become acquainted with the local customs and traditions and experience a truly one of a kind tour.
