Full description
Experience Düsseldorf from a different perspective as you join a night watchman at the end of the day and take a stroll through the historical Altstadt (Old Town). Venture down the romantic lanes and see the streets and buildings illuminated after dark by the glow of the atmospheric lanterns.  Follow a guide equipped with a hand lantern, horn and halberd, as in days of old, and admire his typical gown and costume. Listen intently to interesting tales and hear juicy details of the customs and everyday life of the olden days. When the watchman cries, ‘Hark, ye folks," it is time to explore!

    My wife, my daughter and I took part in this city tour in Düsseldorf last Thursday and were all very enthusiastic. This was mainly due to our night watchman (Michael), who passed on his knowledge to us with a lot of humor in connection with acting skills. His matching antique clothing and the accessories he carried with him also made the night tour a great experience. We are happy to recommend this city tour.

    Booked as a surprise for my girlfriend, the evening walk with the very entertaining night attendant was absolutely recommendable. We had a lot of fun and learned new things about Düsseldorf and its history. In addition, the night watchman himself has a really pleasant voice that you would like to hear longer. If you still have doubts, do it.
