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.

Super Erlebnis. Hat Spaß gemacht. Uber dieses Spiel haben wir interessante Platze und Orte entdeckt, die wir ohne das Spiel wahrscheinlich nicht besucht hätten. Eine Verbesserungsmöglichkeite sehe ich allerdings in der Platzierung des Hinweises, wie man das Spiel startet - nämlich über eine email an den lokalen Parterre. Dieser Hinweis steht am Ende der Infos zum Spiel. Aber alles in allem ein sehr empfehlenswertes Spiel

Zunächst gab es ein Probleme mit dem Start über die App von Townadventure. Grund war, dass die E-Mail-Adresse schon mal an einem anderen Ort für eine Tour genutzt wurde. Durch die überaus kompetente und freundlich Hilfe eines Mitarbeiters von Townadventure war das Problem schnell gelöst. Die Tour war gut, spannend und informativ. Können wir sehr gerne weiterempfehlen.

Det var en fin tur. Gode instruktioner. Som en mellemting mellem sightseeing og skattejagt var vi tættest på sightseeing. Vi gennemførte turen på tysk. Det skal man kun gøre, hvis man har gode tyskkundskaber, for der er meget læsestof, og nogle af svarene kræver nærlæsning.
