Full description

Get to know Rotterdam at your own pace on this interactive scavenger hunt walking tour played on your phone. Decipher riddles, interact with the most important attractions of the city, and unlock interesting facts. 

After downloading the scavenger hunt tour on your mobile device (via a link and login credentials received upon booking), use the mobile app and integrated maps to reach 10 of Rotterdam’s most important attractions on foot. You can start the game at any time.

Start your tour from the much-photographed City Hall! Visit St. Laurenskerk Rotterdam's only medieval building, still the strange Cube Houses await you. Take a picture of the imposing Witte Huis skyscraper, and let yourself get lost in the Rotterdam Maritime Museum with its unique exhibits. Visit the Walloon church with its unique interior. You will also pass by the National Monument for the Merchant Navy with its sacred symbolism. Admire the Erasmusbrug that connects two vital axes of the city. The Wereldmuseum with its historical exhibits will captivate you and your camera! See, walk, and relax around the Caland monument, which with its incredible history will be the icing on the cake of this tour!

At each stop, learn about the attraction and solve a location-based riddle that can only be solved if you reach the specific location. Use logic, imagination, observation, and team spirit to unlock the correct code and reveal the next destination of the tour.

As you walk through the city, enjoy the flexibility to pause your game at any time to take a break, snap the perfect photos, stop for lunch, or visit a museum. Choose to continue the tour later or save the rest for another day.

For someone visiting Rotterdam for the first time It was a fun way to explore the city. The route took in all the main sights, with the flexibility to decide which ones you wanted to visit in more detail, or to stop for refreshment. Some clues were very challenging (but solvable with hints) others were easy. It took me 6 hours with several breaks for refreshment. For me it missed out the Market Hall (although this should be obvious from the Cube Houses) and Euromast. I continued my walk to visit the latter.

The scavenger hunt aka city tour is nice. The puzzles are doable, even if we needed help once or twice. Is a very nice change from the conventional city tour. In my opinion, but a bit expensive if you are alone.
