This tour is very interesting if you can comprehend history unlike me I had a very hard time understanding what the tour guide was saying because I was 10 years old. The night-watchman(Hans Georg Baumgartner) takes you around the walled Medieval town of Rothenburg pointing out interesting buildings, throwing in snippets of history and comic relief.I won’t ruin the thrill...

Guide definitely stayed in character for the whole tour. Learned some interesting factoids about the area and general history. A good experience all around. Tour guide was fun, sociable and knowledgeable. A must see while in the city! Lots of fun! Great way to spend an hour after the Christmas markets close.

He not only dressed and played the part superbly, but he also engaged people with his sense of humour. Very well done.

The tour guide was funny and knew a lot of knowledge on the town and its histories and the executions that took place. I recommend a must see and do for anyone who visits and is interested. €7 for English is really good for what you get.

Went on this your during our stay. The guide was entertaining and had obviously researched his topic. We would recommend as a fun activity....you learn about medieval history more than about the city itself though, just fyi.

Our guide was very entertaining and had an impressive accurate knowledge of history. A nice combo of macabre history and regular history.

The tour guide was entertaining This was after Christmas day and weather was beautiful with full moon. He points on architecture,that we wouldn't have noticed. It was like having our own theater performance. We are really enjoy this tour and tour guide as well. Bring comfortable shoe,no high heels..

Really good! The tour guide was entertaining, charming and informative! Fabulous value for money and the black humour was very good too. He really gave a fascinating insight into the mind of a mediaeval executioner. Thank you ever so much;.)

The tour was at times awkward and often inappropriate. The guide tried to make it dark and funny but it came off as creepy, bad creepy. It was as if the guide wrote a German tour and translated it in google translator. Half the group left halfway through. You won't miss anything by skipping this tour and going to the... More

This tour was great. It was more like having our own theatre performance, as the guide impersonates the executioner. He does two tours in the sumemr, one in German at 6:00 pm, and one in English at 7:00 pm. (5 euros in German, 7 Euros in English). He points at details on the architecture, that I wouldn't have noticed or... More
