Walking Tour with the Night Watchman
In the dark alleyways of medieval Zurich, the night watchmen were important guards: they not only called out the hours, but also in particular were on the look-out for fires and shady characters such as drunkards and thieves.
Nowadays, tour participants who accompany the night watchman on his rounds through the city after dark embark on a journey back through time to the Zurich of yesteryear.
The night watchman tells participants all kinds of gruesome stories of harsh sentences, executions, hangmen, and witches, and of plagues and devastating fires. However, he also relates some amusing anecdotes, and time and time again causes his fascinated listeners to smile and marvel at the many interesting facts about the city´s eventful history.
