Full description
In the game box, you'll find eleven sealed and numbered envelopes. In these, you find small tasks that need to be solved. Led by clear directions,  walk around the Erfurt old town, solving the puzzles in order to get to the next station. As solution for the puzzles, you get a number that tells you what envelope you have to open next. As you criss-cross through the city, you’ll receive detailed background information on the history of each site that you reach.  You decide for yourself when to start the tour, and along the way, take as much time as you’d like stopping for a bite to eat, a coffee, or to do some shopping. The game starts at the famous Erfurt Cathedral, and leads you through the city’s most historic sights. Walk pass Kaufmannskirche, Stadtmuseum zur Krämerbrücke, and the Petersberg Fortress. Above all, experience the city in a unique way, having a blast with your family, friends, or yourself. Please note that the game is in German.

Very nicely designed and informative. As a result, we were able to get to know Erfurt in a relaxed manner without being tied to appointments. It is also nice that secular buildings are taken into account as well as sacred buildings and general landmarks - very varied. Thank you for the great idea.

The scavenger hunt is very nice and fun. Unfortunately there was a question about the cathedral, which we could not solve because the cathedral was in the process of renovation. I think that should be checked here at regular intervals whether the tasks are still up to date. Otherwise it was really nice.

Das Rätsel war durchdacht, eine angenehme Länge (zeitlich und von der zurück gelegten Strecke) und ideal mit Kindern und Großeltern. Wir haben eine Mittagspause in der Michaelisstraße gemacht (war auch Teil der Route) und eine Unterbrechung zum Eis-Essen. Vielen lieben Dank für den wundervollen Tag in Erfurt!
