I really liked the ideas and the questions. The only thing that bothered us was that you couldn't try to enter the correct answer several times and then jump straight to the next question. I participated with a group of students. So I don't think it's good that you are directed to the Hotel Sacher and asked to take a break. A break in the Sacher is too expensive for students.

Parts of the tour were not solvable. Several local clues were missing or made no sense. Thus, important information was missing to get to the respective points. Even with the solution, the passages made no sense.
