To coincide with the foundation of the city in 1158, Dark History Tours will be running a evening tour next Saturday and Sunday.
Your guides Hans von Spanker and glamorous sidekick The Wench will regale you with fascinating tales about the ancient history and archaeology of the area, Medieval life, trade, the Black Death, “justice” and persecution, defences and military history.
There might – if you are good – even be a medieval beer tasting thrown in as well.
When and where?: Next Saturday and Sunday in Marienplatz, just by the fish fountain. Look for the “Dark History Tours” sign. We start at 5.15 – this gives folk time to see the Glockenspiel.
Duration: the tour runs to about 3 hours – but the time flies by.
How much? Regular: €16
Concessions: €14 (Students, seniors 65+, serving or ex-military and/or first responders)
Very young kids*: you decide
Reservations not required but an indication of interest by email would be useful so we know how much beer to bring.
*Note: While we love talking to kids about history, some of this is a bit grisly (But sadly, all too true). If you are bringing youngsters just let us know beforehand.
