The evening walking tour provided by Ralf the Nightwatchman is fascinating and a unique way to discover parts of Lucerne that you may not otherwise visit. Ralf conducts the tour in medieval dress and recounts life as it was in medieval times. He has lots of interesting stories and projects images on walls to elaborate his stories. I would highly recommend this unique tour to anyone visiting Lucerne.…

Review of: Classic Lucerne City Walk
We had the tour guide all to ourselves. We walked into the paved back streets of this beautiful city. He was full of information, historical and cultural facts and came in costume with props. We received lovely postcards to remind us of this quirky experience.

We have been on a few of these types of tours over the years and inevitably end of a disappointed in the end. Not this time! We really enjoyed this tour and our tour guide Ralph was fantastic. So much interesting history and facts about the city. We had walked past many of the sights during the day with no idea of the history and stories associated with the buildings and area. Highly recommend this tour for a great evening!…
