English tour starts at 8PM. I thing the German speaking tour starts at 9.30PM. Lasting around 45 minutes, the night watchman tour is entertaining as it is informative. Starting at the town square, the walking tour takes tourist to a few stopping points where the last remaining night watchman share interesting history of the town. The tour group can be quite large as there is no limit on the number of participants. But at each stopping point, the night watchman does make sure that everybody can hear and see him.
Bottom line the night watchman tour is highly recommended for two reasons. One, it is quite entertaining and informative. Second, beside dinner, there is nothing else to do in Rothenberg after dark.
