It was a very nice tour of Colmar, you passed all the important places. It was frustrating that we couldn't solve the last puzzle on site despite our experience. Some of these are not easy for beginners. Also at the first station we could see many changes in the picture, but we could only find out the right number by looking at it. After completing a station, a special text for the next station or something like that is always displayed, but you have to deselect it with the x in order to be able to select the route to the next station. For example, we could not understand why the text with the headless horses is displayed. Some of the solution aids were too easy, so that as a beginner you sometimes cannot find the solution and may give up in frustration. Aren't there any free or premium geocaches of this type in Colmar? In general, GetyourGuide in Colmar was a good experience.

Good way to get around and see the city. It can be recommended. That way, you do it at your own pace and is a good way to e.g. when, like us, you had a dog with you. PS It is probably a bad translation when "Scavenger Hunt" has become Scavenger Hunt rather than Treasure Hunt, which would probably be the correct translation.

Level 1: The puzzle was a bit confusing as only one sheep is shown as the difference. It would be better to have several differences so as not to be misled. Level 6: The restaurant does not have the correct address. Level 10: It is above, not below, the main entrance. Otherwise, the puzzles were fun! The individual levels are close together.
