Christmassy City Walking Tour – Costume Tour through the Wintry City

We’ll have to admit we don’t know much about the historical St. Nicolas, but the legends that surround him are bizarre: That he still fills good children’s stockings with gifts is said to be related, for example, to the story that he once threw a lump of gold through the window of a house on three evenings one after another. A poor man lived in the house with his three daughters. The generous dowry achieved results: All three daughters were thus able to be married off.

Even if the substance of this legend is uncertain, one thing is clear: As bishop, Nicolas certainly didn’t run around in red and white garb. That’s why Trier guide Heinz Fischer will appear in the classic form with miter, bishop’s crozier, and purple robe. In his bag, he has a whole host of exciting Christmas stories hidden behind some of Trier’s doors. You’ll hear all about them in the tour. The tour will go for an interior visit into the Porta Nigra.

Each Saturday at 12:00 noon on the following dates:
November 30, December 7, and December 14, 2019
