What people are saying about Düsseldorf

We did the scavenger hunt as two families with 11 and 13 year old children. So the children got to know Düsseldorf enthusiastically, were never bored and we had a great city tour to all the places worth seeing and were able to set the pace ourselves. Definitely to be recommended! We will order the scavenger hunt again if we want to explore another city.

The scavenger hunt was great. We saw so much of Düsseldorf that we would not have found without this game. There was also a lot of information about the history of the city. We also recommend with good impressions :)

we only solved half of the riddles because we found such nice places to stay! Great alternative to a usual city tour. We will definitely solve the second half of the puzzle box on another day.

It was an entertaining walk through Kaiserswerth. If you got stuck with a puzzle, you could request help and a viewpoint from the next station in the game. Very well done.

We are all totally excited about the scavenger hunt! Well thought out and a great way to explore a city on your own.
