Full description
Immerse yourself in an interactive city discovery experience across Amsterdam's Forest, located on the edge of the city. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and explore Amsterdam’s greenest space. Solve riddles via a web app in your phone’s browser. This game is suitable for friends, couples, families with kids, and team buildings. With a variety of challenges and riddles, use your creativity and imagination to unlock the secrets of this lush landscape. All the information you need for your adventure will be provided by the local partner prior to the start of your adventure. 

As part of the activity, you and your team will need to solve 11 riddles, starting at the Grand Cafe de Bosbaan, at the top of the rowing track. Each riddle takes you from one (hidden) location to the next. Discover local recommendations and fun facts, all while learning about the history of the city.

Discover spots in Amsterdam Forest that most locals don’t even know. See popular sights from a different angle (literally!). Get lost in the natural beauty of Het Amsterdamse Bos. As you solve 11 teasing riddles, learn about the stories of the forest and be rewarded with local recommendations. Experience the great outdoors, where you will explore a goat farm and get lost in a maze. The route is approximately 8 kilometers long, so it is recommended that you cycle along the trail. 

The highlights you discover on this game: This green adventure will take you to a goat farm (you can feed the baby goats, do a yoga class with them or sample some goat-milk ice cream!), you’ll find the best pancake restaurant in the ‘city’ and a bird island (what? yes!).
