Night watchman tour Blankenberg
An exciting journey to the past awaits visitors at the night watchman tour through the small, historic town of Blankenberg, located between Bonn and Hennef in the Rhein-Sieg district. The guide, which is available for adults and children, guides you via the stately gate, past crooked houses, through the Renteigasse, past Church Saint Catherine, to the gate of the monastery, built in 1215 and ends up at Castle Blankenberg. From down the castle you will have a spectacular view over the nearby landscape of the Sieg valley. While walking you will meet a few illustrious figures from the history. The tour ends after almost two hours at the marketplace.

"Now hear ye and let me tell you… this is what he cries through the alleyways of Bonn. The night watchman goes ahead and lights up the streets with his torchlight for his guests. The night watchman tells stories about the city's history stretching back over 2000 years including wars and the plague, witch hunting and pay agreements for the hangman. You can also smile at the scary anecdotes from the Middle Ages and early modern history...
