The search for the next place was quite demanding (for children), as you can quickly lose track of a strange city. But the accompanying adults could help. Since the tour went through the area of the peppercorns, it would have been nice if one or the other film location (the bridge, for example) had also been included. The price is aimed at EVERYONE involved, although it was only interesting for children / adolescents. The total price for 2 adults and 1 young person is a little too high.

Well thought out, beautiful route through the Hafencity, Elphi to the Landungsbrücken. For the children (ages 8, 10) easily solvable questions and always with an interestingly described contribution on the cards. The corresponding photos on the cards for the stations are very useful and helpful. Another advantage is that everything can be done at your own pace with stops in between at Eis & Co.

An amazing treasure hunt! I’ve played a few others and especially the ones lead by mobile phones were always very underwhelming. This was different because you used physical materials and everything felt well thought throug. Would definitely recommend!

We were really excited with the game. The children loved it and it was the first time we had a walk through the sightseeing and they didnt complain at all. Totally recommended activity for families!

It was so much fun! So many information about hamburg and the monuments. Riddles made your group work together which is perfect for team work and having some fun. Definitely recommended!
