Heavy boys, light girls – the red light city tour

Bookable in public and exclusive implementation.

The oldest trade in the world is entwined with a whiff of the wicked, the forbidden, and also of temptation. One of our red light tour guides* will now take you on a journey through time to the red light milieu of Freiburg in the 70s, 80s and 90s and tell you about heavy boys and light girls. Don’t miss the exciting stories from a time when some streets in Freiburg were bathed in a dim red light! In the “Schnecken” suburb, not far from the Schwabentor, “trade” had been at home since the Middle Ages. Here the policemen drank a coffee with the whores in the legendary Cafe Ruef in the morning. Here the citizens lived next to pimps, prostitutes and thugs and bought their long red wine in the “Würschtle-Puff”. In the Arena Bar, Freiburg celebrities stood at night with scantily clad women at the bar, and at the other end of the city center, Gina Wildkatze, the manager of the Playboy Bar, got out of her limousine in a long white fur coat. She once had real, white mink bikinis sewn for her 15 bar girls.

The Red Light City Tour is a HISTORICAL CITY TOUR .
