City guide Brunhilde Kohls slips into the costume of the famous Westphalian market woman and, dressed as Güth's Mariechen, leads the tour participants through Gütersloh city centre. Always on hand: anecdotes from the life of the "best saleswoman far and wide" who, with her striking appearance and resolute sayings, captured a place on the market and in the hearts of the market visitors. Humorous, quick-witted and self-confident, that was Güth's Mariechen (1875 to 1952), whose monument on Kolbeplatz still commemorates her today. She is known as a true Gütersloh original. And so is the city guide, who brings the market woman back to life on her tour, therefore adding some variety to everyday life.
From the meeting point at Café Fritzenkötter, she will take you on a 1.5-hour tour of Gütersloh's most important squares and sights. Brunhilde Kohls will explain the history and stories of the buildings and share her tales about the market woman.
