The tour was interesting and funny and well worth the 7 euro. I didn't expect to find him there because my tour book said only until Christmas but he was still there "between the years" when everything else seemed to be closed.

This tour is a must. The Night Watchman is full of insights into the olden days and has a wicked sense of humour. A great, fun way to learn about the town

Seriously, this is the best hour I've ever spent walking around at night. For 7 euro you will get a walking tour of Rotheburg with punchy, comedic one-liners thrown in. It is educational and entertaining. Bundle up if you're here in winter, it can be chilly.

Excellent, humorous 1 hour night tour around Rothenburg. Full of interesting details and history of the town imparted in an entertaining way which suits all the family. Just turn up at the appointed time in front of the town hall and off you go. There is a small fee but most people gave a little extra on top it was... More

The Night Watchman Tour was fantastic. The gentleman that led the tour was fantastic, he had a great sense of humour and was very entertaining as he told us all the historical facts about Rothenburg as we walked through the town at night. He was dressed in the full night watchman attire, and held a sickle and lantern as he... More

A tour that was well worth the cost attached. Our host was witty and most informative and had our attention all of the way. The duration of the tour was perfect and easy to take part of even in a large crowd.

It is worth doing it. It is interesting and our guide was very good. You have the opportunity to learn more about city's history. You don't have to do any kind of reservation.

We have been going to Rothenburg since 1970. We have seen the nightwatchman tour go from free and ask for tips to its current pay situation. All in all, a fun event. We have done it a few times with different friends and it is always interesting with some good laughs. Definitely plan to do this when in town. The... More

The guide really gets into his character and it makes the whole tour so much more exciting. The stories and sights are great. The group I had was large, so it was rough for him to share his rehearsed yet fresh stories with all 100 people.
