But now he has died at the age of 81 and has apparently taken the secret with him to the grave. Or not? While dissolving the apartment, his children found a few things that could possibly give clues to the secret. Or is it just worthless junk from a weird, somewhat lonely old man?

He or She can certainly give you hints if you don't know what to do next.

Meanwhile my 4th tour with the Segway through different cities. We were all warmly welcomed and very well briefed before we went on the Düsseldorf tour including a break in the old town. Unfortunately very entertaining as it is over much too quickly. Thank you for the beautiful day that we will never forget.
A nice short break from everyday life. Very nice employee who explained and showed us everything. We can recommend anyone who wants to feel like on vacation for a short while.
Nice guide, careful briefing and practice with each and every one of them before we set off, safe and beautiful tour, always happy to return.
