Adventurous tours of the town of Burgdorf

You can explore the lovely Zähringer town in a variety of interesting ways, from culinary, scary and spooky to classic and criminal.

Discover the town of Burgdorf afresh, as our expert guides tell you fascinating and curious facts about the past and present of the historical town. From the former workers’ district that is now known as the Kornhausquartier (“granary quarter”), the tour takes you to the upper old town and parish church before finishing at the imposing Burgdorf Castle. During the tour, you can help the investigating detective solve a criminal case or explore the heritage of Burgdorf’s traditional shops. As you browse the local specialities, you’ll learn what shopping was like 100 years ago.
