This tour is quite interesting. At the same time it’s scary, it’s fun and informative. I learned a lot about Hamburg’s past in a fun and interactive way. I would recommend this tour to friends and family (especially those with kids).

Story telling is mesmerizing. The actors and role play were extremely realistic. If you’re looking to discover Middle age Hamburg, you won’t be disappointed.

Det er en god måde at fortælle om Hamburgs historie kunne godt tænke at der var flere ture på engelsk
