Ghost Tour With The Executioner

Has anyone taken the Ghost Tour With The Executioner in Rothenburg? Is it worth it? This takes place at 5:00 daily, but I am not sure where the meeting place is.

Are you referring to the Nightwatchman tour? If so, it is definitely worth it. It takes about an hour and is so informative.

this must be a new one -- we were in Rothenburg three years ago, and this was not on offer.

I second the recommendation for the Night Watchman's Tour. He's funny and informative, and is a great way to learn a little more about medieval life.

(FWIW, we took it once in the early autumn, when it had gone dark one chilly, damp evening -- and again years later on a summer evening in the twilight. It was LOADS more fun on the chilly, damp evening -- Herr Watchman is very, very tall, and he was quite the sight rounding the corner of the building with his black cloak billowing in the wind, the light of his lantern guttering at the end of his halberd.)

From the website that I referenced above, I take it that the first such tour will be offered on 16Sept, therefore, no one will have taken it previously.
