Ulf arrived promptly, five minutes before the appointed time. The location of the rendezvous was clearly described on the website and easily found. He knew who had booked - five Germans and one English - and greeted us by name. He was willing to speak English, but it was not necessary. He had a good knowledge of facts and figures, and the social background. While the tour lasted one hour, as expected, he built in enough time to answer questions, and had a good selection of photographs to illustrate his answers. The short video on his tablet was clear and interesting. In all an excellent way to get to know the building the day before coming to a concert.

Bernd, Sie waren Spitze. Meine Frau und ich hatten aber auch das Glück, dass wir die Einzigen waren. Dadurch war es möglich, viele Fragen zu stellen und Bernd hat sie alle ausführlich beantwortet. Diese Tour mit Ihnen werden wir nie vergessen, Sie sind ein ganz toller Typ. Vielen Dank für dieses einmalige Erlebnis.
