Children discover the City!

This is a guided tour with a special twist: There are a lot of interesting spots to discover between St. Michael's Church, the Fountain of Miracles, the Little Tower "Türmle" and the new Guildhall.
Get lost in the stories of our iconic dumpling washer "Knöpfleswäscherin", climb the former city walls, "swim" through the city stream "Wedel" and pass the spooky eagle owl gap.
You can also experience time travel with a knight.
