Our guide Philipp took us on an exciting tour of the most important sights and places. He rounded it all off with old legends and stories, but also lots of historical facts and tips for our stay. It's always great to have an experienced and above all passionate guide by your side. In this case, however, it was particularly noticeable and made the entire tour an experience! We were really able to discover the city in a completely different, more intensive and much more beautiful way. Thank you for the great time and this truly unforgettable experience!
