Full description
Have a 2-hour interactive discovery experience across Budapest. Solve riddles via a web app in your phone’s browser, each taking you from one hidden location to the next. You’ll unlock local recommendations and fun facts, as well as the history of the city.

Discover spots in Budapest that most locals don’t even know. You’ll see popular sights from a different angle (literally!) and explore the streets of one of the most charming neighborhoods in the city, Castle Hill. This place is way more than just a tourist location—discover local cafés and galleries, find curious statues, and wander through hidden passages. Discover Fisherman’s Bastion, Matthias Church, Buda Castle, and get picturesque views of the Danube, the Parliament, and more.

This game was created by two locals, Dora and Adam, who love puzzles, games, and any kind of brain-teaser. This game is suitable for friends, couples, families with kids, and team-building exercises. Enjoy being together while exploring the city, be creative, and use your imagination to uncover the city’s secrets.

Lovely little app but could have said that there were a number of steps to start the tour which less able bodied people may not be able to cope with. If that had been stated a meeting place, perhaps at the site of the first clue, could have been given as well. Also, one of the clues the escalator was closed (for repair) so didn’t have a chance of answering that one. Overall would recommend it as wouldn’t have visited the places we went through.

Great activity to discover the surroundings of Buda Castle. Fortunately there are clues, otherwise we would never have finished our quest! Point for improvement: offer the activity in other languages
