Full description

Get to know Strasbourg 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 and legends. An ideal outdoor activity for first time visitors, couples, groups, families, and children. Can be used as a great team-building activity.

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 Strasbourg’s most important attractions on foot. You can choose to start your tour whenever you want.

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 city sightseeing game.

Start your tour at the much-photographed Ponts Couverts. Visit the architecturally exemplary Church of Saint-Thomas, while La Place Gutenberg will give you a taste of downtown life.

Take a photo in the building of the Alsatian Museum, which will amaze you with its exhibits, and discover the beauty of the Strasbourg Cathedral, a Gothic architectural masterpiece. Visit the incomparably beautiful Palais Rohan, with its blue-blooded aura. You will also pass by the city's largest square, Place Kleber, named after a well-known general of the French Revolution.

Admire the iconic Strasbourg Opera House with its unique acoustics. The "new town", with its great history, will enchant you and your camera! The icing on the cake of this unique experience will be St. Paul's Church(where the tour ends) with the rich interior design.

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.

What a great way to see the city. Got to see the highlights while also finding side streets and interesting shops. Really feel like we got a good taste of the city. Sat by the carousel, listened to a school band, ate pastries. Would definitely recommend. They may have upgraded based on previous comments. We had no trouble with questions and didn't need any hints.

The Strasbourg riddle tour was much more interactive than any other city tour. We took breaks when we wanted and explored the city at our own pace. A few puzzles could not be solved well without hints, this could be improved a little, for example with a few more details in the task. But overall highly recommended!

What a fun way to explore the city! This took us places we wouldn’t have looked for on our own, and it was great to be able to stop and go through the cathedrals on our own time. The puzzles were challenging, but we only needed hints a couple times
