This tour is excellent, but requires 2 hours of walking, so be prepared! Our guide is well versed on Vonnegut and WWII. The tour was informative and fun. There were 6 in our group.

We met Danilo at Theaterplatz, knowing nothing of our exact itinerary. He started in on us as someone with an agenda, fire in the belly over every abuse of power by government and multinational corporations. It didn't feel like a good start. Once we began...More
