Our city tour starts at the tourist office. But there are only two participants, namely Hans and me. So it is a private tour!

We visit the cathedral with Bonifacius crypt, the palace garden with the orangery and roam a little through the city with many interesting explanations about the street names and the houses. After the tour I visit the castle.
