Full description

Discover the most famous sights of the Port of Hamburg in a fun way. The starting point for this unique Scavenger Hunt Hamburg will be at Kornhausbrücke in Speicherstadt (Warehouse City). Continue to Fleetschlösschen and the monument to the famous pirate Störtebeker. The Magellan Terraces at the traditional ship harbor will await you with a task, and also offer the perfect opportunity to take a break. The Scavenger Hunt City Tour Hamburg can be paused whenever you feel like it, depending on whether you would like to spend more time at a certain place or take a longer look at a tourist attraction. Continue to Kehrwieder and the museum ships San Diego and Rickmer Rickmers. The exciting Scavenger Hunt City Tour will end at the famous jetties of the Port of Hamburg. The Scavenger Hunt Box contains 8 sealed and numbered envelopes. These contain puzzles that need to be solved. Guided by clear and unambiguous directions, make your way through the Port of Hamburg. Solve the puzzles and let the clues lead you to the next destination. Each solved puzzle will yield a number that will tell you which envelope to open next. You will not know in advance what order the scavenger hunt city envelopes need to be opened. The envelopes will also contain detailed background information of each attraction, its history, its current use, and much more. Decide for yourself when to start your Scavenger Hunt through Hamburg, and how much time to spend at each location. Take a break from your Scavenger Hunt whenever you feel like it, or even continue your scavenger hunt on a different day. Order the Box and enjoy this special sightseeing tour whenever you want.

Our daughter is 7 years old. She is basically very lazy to walk, while we really like going for walks. Thanks to the scavenger hunt, it went really well. The goals are not far apart, only at the very end we ran out of breath. We're still up the Elbphi, which of course takes time. The information is interesting, but not brief enough for children. We simply left them out more often or only we adults read them. I would do it again and again, we really had a great day.

We experienced a lot and learned a bit more about Hamburg. After we had already walked a lot and the children actually didn't feel like walking anymore, the scavenger hunt was a nice incentive to explore a little more on foot. Since we were at one station before, we could simply skip this part of the scavenger hunt.

We were in Hamburg on Ascension Day. Lots of happy people everywhere. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't great and the museums were getting crowded... But we were able to start the scavenger hunt exactly when it was dry. We were able to interrupt them at great playgrounds and even finished the second part on a different day because it got really too wet. It was perfect! Also for boys who don't belong in the category "heavy readers". Compact information, great route, funny language, feel for detail. We are very enthusiastic and will certainly repeat it in other cities!
