The scavenger hunt is really great. Suitable for elementary school children or up to a maximum of 12 years. The children are busy and get to know the city in a playful way. You can set your own pace and see the sights along the way as you please. Our kids loved it. Will definitely be something again when we are in another city.

Lovingly made, nice round through the Albstadt. The puzzles were not a challenge for our boys (10 and 12) but they were proud to lead us. There was some information about each station. So we had our own individual city tour. We took 1.5 days and stopped everywhere if we liked it.

Eine tolle Idee und gut umzusetzen mit Kindern. Das Zusatzrätsel war ein Highlight. Toll wäre es, wenn am Ende der Schnitzeljagd ein kleiner "Schatz" auf die Kinder warten würde. Und manch eine Station, wie das Zählen der Fenster an der Synagoge war schwierig zu sehen. Die Kinder fanden es sehr gut - und darauf kommt es an!!! Danke!
