Since Constance is a City with a lot of History and many Stories, many different City Tours are also offered here. So I set out for the Centro Guesthouse and tested four very different Guided tours for You. Here I would like to introduce You to these briefly:
1. The classic Tour-Marketing & Tourism Constance
For This I join Klaus Haase, who is a Historian and does the City tour „Present of the Past.” At first, I’m a bit sceptical About whether such a classic 2‑Hour tour can be exciting, but with Mr Haase, time flies as if you were in Flight. Of course, it is about the History of Constance and there are some Annual Figures-but Mr. Haase knows how to link them Excitingly with Konstanzer’s Sights and Stories. Again and again he surprises the Participants with his broad Knowledge in History and Geography. He also shows a large Map of Lake Constance and tells a bit of the Region and Geography. I really notice how the Participants can classify everything a little better, because they are not out of Constancy and sometimes come from far away. Mr. Haase chooses a nice Tour of the old Town of Constantine and we end up at the Harbour, from where you have a wonderful View over Lake Constance. I hear only positive Voices from the Participants‑a competent, entertaining City Tour.
When you ask Mr. Haase himself, what’S Special About his Guides is that he portrays History in a way that everyone can understand it. It makes a Point of explaining historical Terms and following a Concept so that no unrelated Names and Numbers fly around.
The Marketing & Tourism department Konstanz offers over 20 different Guided tours of approx. 50 City Guides and in many different Languages-from the Classic Tour to the Lake Constance crime scene tour. There are also public Tours as well as private Group Tours. Take a look here.
2. History in Stories-City Leadership Constance
According to Research, I am to be told many exciting, funny and perhaps sometimes sometimes somewhat cruel Stories and Anecdotes from Constance during the tour of The city, which I can also remember well afterwards. I set out And meet Mr. Schloßarek and his Group in the old Town of Constantine. And in fact-the Research didn’t promise me too much: On an entertaining Tour We are allowed to listen to all sorts of surprising, exciting and funny Anecdotes at the appropriate locations. Right at the Beginning, Mr. Schloßarek makes it clear that he wants to entertain us and that his Stories are not always 100% historically verifiable, but all are based on different Kinds of historical Tradition. Which makes me think with every Story: Did this really happen that way? Or could someone perhaps have used something?
So The Focus here is on the Entertainment and so the 2 Hours with Mr. Schloßarek fly by in No time and in Walking Away the Participants still joke about one story or another and think about it-so they probably feel the same Way as I do. So that with Memory has really succeeded, I think to myself. Because I, too, tell my Friends and Acquaintances about one anecdote or another In the days that follow.
Mr. Schloßarek himself says of his Guides: „I think what makes us special is that we just tell very funny and eloquent stories instead of hacking around On History data.” He and his Colleagues offer different Themed Tours for private Groups in different Languages-interestingly, by Interpreter even in Russian or Georgian.

3. Guided Tour of The city with wine Tasting and Mrs. Konstanze-See Guide Konstanz
4. The Night’S Guard Tour-The Night’S Wighteners Constance
Now something completely different: It is Not until 8 P.m. that the Night’S Day tour begins with the Historian and Author Ulrich Büttner. At Dusk We gather in front of The Minster and wait anxiously. Then Mr. Büttner emerges with a black Cape and Hat, Hellebarde and Lantern. His Disguise, he explains to us, is Original from the Middle Ages. Then he also begins to explain to us first what he has with him and what were actually the Tasks of a Night Watchman and his Place in the Company of medieval Constancy. Then we start on a Tour of the Alleys of The old Town of Konstanzin, which probably a Night Watchman could have gone just like that at that time.
At many Corners we stop and the Night Watchman tells us in a humorous and Very competent way the story and Anecdotes from the Middle Ages and also from the more recent times to the different Places we visit and beyond. Even I am quite surprised at the many small Details in the Cityscape, which you simply overlook when you are constantly on the road here. By the way, do You know where the Saying „scratch the Curve” comes from? Mr. Büttner can show You this and tell you this in The Old town of Constantine.
The Tour Never got boring thanks to fewer Facts and figures and more historically arranged Stories and the Time in the Evening is also a nice Finish for a Holiday Day. The Night Watchman himself says what’S Special About his Guides is their Liveliness and I definitely agree with him on that.
The Night Watchmen Constance also offer a spooky guided tour with the Executioner and a speech-witted with the Country Chef-for Groups and also the Public. Take a look here. These Tours can also be booked via Marketing & Tourism Constance.
