The Night Watchman is fun and informative way to see Rothenburg. His stories of the past bring to life the nature of this unique place as well as its character. Would definitely recommend this for anyone visiting Rothenburg.

Over 20 years the night watchman has conducted the nightly walking tour of town. He is informative yet very entertaining. A must do while visiting Rothenburg. Well worth the 8,00 euros per person.
