In German only!

Watchman Bremme is very nice and entertaining storyteller. We forgot the rainy weather as he led our group enthusiastly through the city centre, stopping at historical sights. We found out that the language is just in German which I could not understand. Luckily my husband knows a little German and he could follow it. So hope that this tour can be in English as well, we would come back for that. Maybe some texts in English? We would recommend this tour for any native German speaker. You’ll have lots of fun with Bremme’s stories and play of words.

Eine Einschätzung abzugeben, die allen Reisenden hilft, ist schwierig, da ich nur von "unserem" Nachtwächter sprechen kann. Von der "Zunft" sind ja, wie wir beim Aufenthalt mitkommen haben, einige unterwegs. Unser "Nachtwächter" hat mit seiner Art, die Innenstadt kennen zu lernen, sehr gut gefallen. Wir wurden nicht mit Jahres- und anderen Zahlen überschüttet, sondern konnten auch andere "Hintergrund-" Informationen über Personen und Gebäude mit Ihrer Geschichte und Entwicklung mitnehmen.

Sehr authentisch, gute Führung. Uns hat es sehr gefallen, in die Barockzeit zurückversetzt zu werden, das karge Leben eines Nachtwächters zu dieser Zeit erläutert zu bekommen, die Geschichten um den Bau des alten Rathauses, das Leben in den Straßen sowie Bach und Goethe hautnah mit historischem Hintergrund erleben zu dürfen. Nachtwächter Bremme jederzeit gerne wieder.
