Guided tour with the night watchman

A journey back to the Middle Ages. Join the night watchman on his walk through the dark alleys of Rheinfelden's old town.


Go on a tour with the night watchman.

He checks whether the guards have properly raised the drawbridge over the Rhine. Whether the tower guards are doing their duty today without beer and schnapps. He checks at the barracks whether the Habsburg garrison troops are quiet. And whether individual soldiers have not strayed into the neighbouring «Haus zum Meerfräulein».

An amusing tour through Rheinfelden at night.

The night watchman wears a cape, a hat and a lantern. Make sure that no shady character is up to mischief in the town.
