      Assessment of the night watchman tour on October 30th, 2020 at 8:00 p.m. I found the night watchman tour interesting because I learned a lot about Dresden and Marda. It was a lot of fun Lea I would recommend the tour because it is well explained for both kids and adults. Marlon It was a great tour ... I would like to repeat ... meet Marda Göhler on the Elbe in the summer. Elina The tour was very interesting for me because I learned a lot about Dresden. I also really liked Marda Göhler's personality. It was very beautiful. Kornelia THANK YOU…… for the detailed stories, the wonderful Saxon language, the many small facts that were told, the responsiveness to our children and young people, the fun we all had. Ramona

      It was a very entertaining and informative tour. We learned a lot about Dresden and got a good insight. It was a completely new type of city tour for us, more like a coffee gossip, the information was served on the side, so to speak, and was not bored with a rattled text. The group was manageable. And our night watchman Doris spoke loudly and clearly, so that we could hear everything well. It was a successful tour all round, which we can warmly recommend to every visitor. Our two teenagers were also in a good mood and in no way bored.

      When we arrived at the meeting point we were greeted with lanterns and a relaxed / funny saying. The group was split up and then the night watchman tour started. The sights were explained to us very professionally. The lady had the group fully under control with her relaxed / witty manner. This is a must when you visit Dresden. Many thanks
