The tour was very informative and entertaining. In addition to the important historical context, small stories were also repeatedly incorporated. Our guide Daniel also paid special attention to our American guests and explained, for example, not only the origin of German but also American proverbs. I can only recommend the tour with Daniel because it was very interesting for me, even though it wasn't my first tour of Rothenburg.

It was a wonderful tour! The guide, Daniel, had a wonderfully lively storytelling style and was an experience to listen to. He was really able to tell us a lot about Rothenburg in general, the architecture, the town's history and Rothenburg's popular residents. It was really great and definitely worth the price!
