Full description
Take a totally unique tour through the Speicherstadt & Hafencity with this self-guided scavenger hunt for you and your friends. Get to learn about this city whilst you find clues and solve puzzles. 

Start your tour by going to the start page of your city adventure. Via a link you can start right away or at a later time - it's totally up to you! Once you start, it's also possible to take a break now and then to stop for a bite to eat or to rest. Your first task will immediately plunge you into a world full of hidden clues and photos. The town adventure will make sure you answer tricky questions and will provide you with exciting information on the respective topic. If you aren’t able to solve a task at some point, then you will get helpful hints.

Coffee and tea, emperors and bishops, pepper bags and peppercorns wait to be discovered by you. Admire the brick facade of the warehouses and their decoration and explore the city of Hamburg and all it has to offer. Your adventure will be over after two to three hours, once you and your friends have become experts of Speicherstadt and HafenCity.

The beginning was a bit bumpy. We stood in front of the starting point and didn't know what to do next. Only after an email to the provider did we get a call and an email with the further steps. After that everything went wonderfully. Exciting, entertaining. Brief explanations of the locations. Good advice if you got stuck. It was fun

Spent a day in Hamburg with my 10 year old daughter before visiting the musical. Found the scavenger hunt would be a nice way to keep it happy as we walk through the city. It also worked. The scavenger hunt is (as the name actually says) limited to the Speicherstadt. I now know very well about this because there is a lot of information about every puzzle solved. It is also good that there are always several tips on request, and if you really don't get it, you can have the solution given and continue. It passes many beautiful places and bridges, you are made aware of the architecture and history ... really nicely done. Solving the puzzles is also a lot of fun!
