Full description
In past centuries, the walls of Heidelberg Castle learned many dark secrets of their inhabitants and heard of murder, intrigue, and unholy connections. The chattering night watch of the Dukes Palace invites you on a tour around the castle and gardens and tells you everything about these gruesome legends and events. Of course, the night watchman have noticed some piquant details about state affairs and they like to dish the dirt about the dukes and their family business. Look forward to a tour with eerie legends, anecdotes, and spicy details around the long-forgotten inhabitants of the most romantic ruin in the world. Of course, the night watchman will also report bloody battles and the destruction of the castle, and if you always wanted to know what pipe smoking and bombing has to do with the finding of French uniform buttons in the vaults, then you should acompany the night watchman on their way around the dark walls and through the dark trenches.

    sehr gut und interessant für Gäste und Einheimische

    Die Gruppe mit 34 Teilnehmern sollte das oberste Limit sein, es wird sonst schwer für den Nachtwächter alle akustisch zu erreichen, gerade wenn die Gruppe im Halbkreis um ihn herum steht und er sich mal der linken und mal der rechten Seite zuwendet. Ansonsten prima gemacht, es hat uns sehr gefallen.

    Geschichtsunterricht mal anders

    Ich habe nicht mit so viel Humor seitens des Guides gerechnet, womit der Abend an sich nicht sonderlich gruselig, dafür aber sehr unterhaltsam und auch lehrreich war. Es ist, als würde Dir ein Vertrauter der Stadt sämtliche Geheimnisse verraten und munter aus dem Nähkästchen plaudern. Es war unterhaltsam und sehr schön mal eine andere Seite Heidelbergs kennen zu lernen :)
