We broke off between the 5th and 6th station, the Frankfurter Allee was so long and so loud. With our bikes we were sure to stay tuned. But until then the game was great! Learned a lot in a playful way. Thanks to the developers!

All perfect! Good explanations are each site and especially because it was placing you in history to understand the context of the viaita
