5. Duisburg: Scavenger Hunt for Children
Explore Duisburg with your kids on an exciting self-guided scavenger hunt. Visit Old Market square, look at the famous humpback bridge, and solve fascinating puzzles.
Begin your scavenger hunt at Mercatorbrunnen. Open the first of your 8 sealed envelopes and start your adventure. Continue to Burgplatz and Alter Markt (Old Market) to see the Roland statue next to the Town Hall. Stroll around Alter Markt to get an idea of what Duisbury looked like centuries ago.
Next, head to Altstadt Park (Old City Park) and the Inner Harbor. Take a close look at the humpback bridge to see how this straight bridge can form a hump to allow ships to pass through. Finish your scavenger hunt at Salvatorikirche (Church of our Savior).
As you solve puzzles and follow the scavenger hunt trail, learn about each attraction's history from your sealed letters. Take a break from the puzzle when you want to grab a pastry or a coffee, and spend as much time as you wish at each attraction.
The Scavenger Hunt Box contains 8 sealed and numbered envelopes. These contain puzzles that need to be solved. Guided by clear and unambiguous directions, make your way through the inner city of Duisburg. Solve the puzzles and let the clues lead you to the next destination. Each solved puzzle will yield a number that will tell you which envelope to open next. You will not know in advance what order the scavenger hunt city envelopes need to be opened. The envelopes will also contain detailed background information of each attraction, its history, its current use, and much more.
Decide for yourself when to start your Scavenger Hunt through Duisburg for children, and how much time to spend at each location. Take a break from your Scavenger Hunt whenever you feel like it, or even continue your scavenger hunt on a different day. Order the Box and enjoy this special sightseeing tour whenever you want. Please note that the scavenger box will be shipped to you and needs approximately 5 days.
