This was one of the best tours I have been on while in a new city/country. The Watchman was very funny and informative. It as a great way to learn more about the history of Rothenburg and explore parts of the city. At only $7 euros it is well worth it. Our group was on the larger side and we... More

Great tour! There was so much history, and it is very entertaining. I highly recommend this tour if you are here in the evening.

My 15 year old daughter and I took this tour, and it was hilarious! This fellow is very informative with a sense of humor that will make you laugh out loud at times. We were lead on an hour long tour around Rothenburg with various stops along the way. The lone Nightwatchman is dressed in standard Nightwatchman uniform and carries... More

No wonder there are so many good reviews. I thought i had misheard the price, only 7 euros. About 300 people in our group which never became an issue, Stories were informative and get lighthearted and delivered with deadpan humour. Excellent value for money.

The night watchman is the not to miss thing in Rothenburg. He's entertaining and enlightening mixing bad jokes, puns and history into a fun evening. The cost was 7 euros payable at the end of the tour and while most people paid I didn't not see any effort to force a collection. This was fun for everyone except small children... More

This is a must if you go to Rothenberg ob der Tauber. The night watchman is VERY funny and keeps your attention the whole time. There are so many interesting stories and visualizations during the tour. This is free, but he does ask for gratuity at the end. You really should because he is great and it's worth it. My... More

This guy has made a great name for himself, and for good reason. There was over 100 people on this tour and everyone seemed to enjoy it. The night watchman himself was informative and funny, while being respectful of Rothenberg's history. If you're in Rothenberg at 8PM, this is an absolute must do!

We arrived in town early and saw the tour sign posted in the town square. It sounded like fun so we were back by 7:55 P.M. for the tour. We almost didn't go as there were about 200 other people waiting with us for the watchman to arrive. We followed him like rats trailing after the Pied Piper of Hamelin.... More

If you will be in Rothenburg, DO THIS! A super fun and informative overview of Rothenburg's history! The "watchman" is hilarious, makes jokes with/(on) the tourists in the group and makes it an enjoyable time for all! Totally worth the fee! Highly recommended!
