Well worth the 8 Euro price. A must-do if you’re here at night. Great supplement to Rick Steves‘s audio walking tour.

This was extremely enjoyable tour, the tour guide is dressed as a local from the 15th century and was amazing, I could have listened to him tell stories all day, very good English as well, we were very impressed

We were pre-booked but you can just show up at 8 pm and take the English tour. There were about 70 people or more in our group. It takes right at 1 hour and is so worth it. The Nightwatchman knows his history and it is very entertaining and informative. He talks softly so stay close to hear everything. He deadpans his jokes and it is effective. He reminds me of Gene Wilder in looks and in his mannerisms. One thing that was troubling is that there were a lot of people who did not seem to pay him - just walked away at the end of the tour. So much for the honor system - maybe they did not speak English and did not understand. Not sure. Go. Enjoy.

The Night Watchman was very entertaining and funny. He really brought to life a little bit of the history of the town and several of the historic locations in the town. Not to be missed!

We were in a group of about 30 for the English speaking tour at 8 PM. The Nightwatchman arrived at the steps not at the fountain in the market square. Many took photos with him before we began. He stopped at 5 locations, and while the tour did last an hour, we did not walk all that far. He is a good storyteller and his English is good, with a nice medieval accent. He had us laughing frequently, not at jokes, but at stories and his asides. He presented many interesting historical glimpses of the town, well worth the 8 euros asked at the end.
