Full description

Get to know Colmar at your own pace on this interactive scavenger hunt walking tour played on your phone. Decipher riddles, interact with the most important attractions of the city, and unlock interesting facts. 

After downloading the scavenger hunt tour on your mobile device (via a link and login credentials received upon booking), use the mobile app and integrated maps to reach 10 of Colmar’s most important attractions on foot.

Start your tour at Église Saint-Martin with its beautiful Gothic architecture. Explore the Unterlinden Museum and admire its exhibits. The Municipal Theater will amaze you, with its architecture and acoustics. Then the Champ de Mars awaits you, to calm you down in this wonderful landscape! Fontaine Roesselmann will enchant you in a central part of Colmar. Find out why Colmar is also called Little Venice! Get to know Koifhus for its incredible architecture and history. The miraculous Eglise Protestante Saint-Matthieu will fill the capacity of your camera without a doubt while the icing on the cake of this unique tour will be the Bartholdi museum, which was the home of the famous sculptor-creator of the Statue of Liberty in New York.

At each stop, learn about the attraction and solve a location-based riddle that can only be solved if you reach the specific location. Use logic, imagination, observation, and team spirit to unlock the correct code and reveal the next destination of the tour.

As you walk through the city, enjoy the flexibility to pause your game at any time to take a break, snap the perfect photos, stop for lunch, or visit a museum. Choose to continue the tour later or save the rest for another day.

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.
