Full description
The night watchman of Speyerer Stadtwache takes you to places and events that you would never have heard of otherwise. Shameful murderers, dissolute monks, and terrible hustlers once unleashed their mischief in this medieval city, and many a picturesque alley has kept a terrible secret for centuries. During your ramble through Speyer, you will have to strengthen your nerves for this nocturnal experience. Nevertheless, you should not be fooled by the guard, and always keep in mind that the night watchman has a loose shame and one or two of the stories are definitely lies. Enjoy a night out in the medieval old town. Visit the Cathedrals park, see the remains of the medieval city wall and monasteries, and the Jewish synagogue. Pass by the famous historic city gate, Altpörtel, and the historic quarter of Speyer. Learn about history, legends and myths Speyer was founded by the Romans and is one of Germany's oldest cities. The first known names were Noviomagus and Civitas Nemetum. Around the year 500 the name Spira first appeared in written documents. Speyer is dominated by the Speyer Cathedral, a number of churches and the Altpörtel, old gate. In the cathedral, beneath the high altar, are the tombs of eight Holy Roman emperors and German kings. The imperial Cathedral of Speyer, is one of the largest and most significant Romanesque edifices in Germany.
