My husband and I and our 12 and 16 year old kids all enjoyed the walk with the Night Watchman. It was interesting, a little scary and a lot of fun. Not to be missed.

The most entertaining one hour walking tour you will find in Europe. If there is one thing to do while in Rothenburg ob der Tauber it is Georg’s Tour. Informative and funny you won’t believe how quickly the tour is over.

Great tour around Rothenburg with our guide who was a local to the city and was very informative and funny. Great for the entire family and draws a big crowd. It is just an hour and that hour flies by but great tour.
