The night watchman tour was very entertaining and informative. Unfortunately we almost missed it because GetYourGuide did not provide the complete meeting point and Msrienplatz in Munich is large and a bit confusing. In addition, the contact with GetYourGuide did not work. GetYourGuide is not recommended for this event. It's a shame

The tour was wonderful. It was entertaining, you learned a lot, discovered a lot and the time passed by in a flash. You have learned a lot about life in the Middle Ages and the development of Munich and the lively narrative style means that a lot has been remembered. The torch gave the tour a special atmosphere. I can only recommend.
