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 interpreted otherwise. The props he carries are great, and he interacts very well with the audience.
A must do!

This is a new tour that just started in September 2008. Like the Night Watchman tour, it gives you a mixture of historical events, superstition, culture, etc. during medieval times. This is more focused on the crime and punishment aspect, since the main character is the executioner. This was the lowest of the low in medieval times, and was treated like a pariah. The character is funny and endearing, and will develop more as the tour matures. We loved his sword! Tours in English are at 5:00 pm and meet at the town square. At 5 Euros per person, this is a steal. Definitely something else to do in Rothenburg ob der Tauber!
