It was so much fun walking around the city and just exploring. Never once thought “Are we lost”. The game shouldn’t take a lot of time, but we made it last most of the day since we were stopping a lot to take in the sites, shops and restaurants along the way. The game definitely hits “most” of the major landmarks and areas that you will want to visit while in Amsterdam.

Bewusst als letzten Ausflugspunkt gewählt, hat es unsere Erwartung vollends erfüllt. Wir konnten die Fragen komplett lösen, mussten lediglich bei 2 Fragen mehrere Versuche nutzen und haben so direkt einen schönen Abschiedsspaziergang durch die Stadt übernommen 😎

Die Schnitzeljagd präsentiert 10 sehr unterschiedliche Rätsel und ein paar Infoemationen zu Gebäuden und der Stadt. Spaßige Beschäftigung, um in der Stadt herumzukommen. Zum Kennenlernen der Stadt würde ich zusätzlich einen geführten Rundgang empfehlen.
