First of all I have to commend our guide. She presented everything really wonderfully, fluently and very interestingly. The start of the tour with the guided tour through the crypt of the Michaelikirche was also the highlight for us. Very exciting, interesting and also a little scary. We would have liked a little more of that, as the subsequent tours of the other "cellars" were a little less exciting. All in all a great tour, only I would change the order and not start with the most interesting. As a result, the tension flattens out a bit too quickly. Nevertheless, we liked it very much and we are happy to recommend it.

Very interesting tour with a very nice and competent group leader. We also got a lot of additional information and were enthusiastic about the locations, the only drawback was that due to Corona, the canal route with the underground streams was not offered, but we will certainly make up for it.

Super interesting tour! Had my almost 14 year old son with me, he too thought the tour was great! With younger children it could be a bit too scary or too tedious, and the distance you cover is a bit longer! Very exciting and interestingly designed tour - we will remember a few things!
