About
Discover medieval Lucerne with your private guide on your Nightwatchman walking tour. Learn about the history of the Nightwatchman and see the illuminated attractions. You'll be told about the Legend of the Riot of Lucerne and will hear about ghosts, demons and witches. Imagine what it was like to live in Lucerne in the middle ages and get information about the law and order of that time. Your private Nightwatchman guide is dressed in medieval style and equipped with a traditional Swiss halberd. He will guide you through narrow streets and hidden places of the historic centre of Lucerne. The tour is surrounded by pictures presented with a projector, on iPad and on postcards.

Great way to learn about Lucerne!
May 2019 • Couples
My husband friends and I did this tour in early May and Ralf was a wonderful story teller and made the evening interesting and enjoyable teaching us about Lucerne and it's history while walking the streets.
Thank you Ralf!
