Explore Leipzig city center in a unique way with a scavenger hunt in German. You will find 11 sealed and numbered envelopes in the city game box. In these envelopes are the challenges, which have to be solved. You receive clear directions and make your way through Leipzig's city center on foot. Solve the riddles and discover the next stop for your tour. The solution to the riddles is always the number of the next envelope. Prior to solving the riddles you don't know the order in which the envelopes for the scavenger hunt/city tour have to be opened. You will also receive detailed information about the history and today's use of each of the sights during the tour. You decide yourself when you want to start your scavenger hunt through Leipzig's city center and how long you want to stay at each site. Stroll through the city at your own pace and experience a an interesting and extraordinary tour.

These sights await you on your tour: The city game starts at the central train station in Leipzig. Continue to Augustusplatz, where you can see the opera, the cloth hall as well as the so-called “Uni-Riese”, a well-known high-rise building. You will also pass the popular student club Moritzbastei. Not to be missed during your Leipzig tour is the famous restaurant Auerbachs Keller in one of Leipzig’s many arcades, the Mädler Passage. Discover also the beautiful Old Stock Exchange (Alte Handelsbörse) and the town hall during your scavenger hunt. Your tour will also lead you to the St. Thomas Church ‒ one of Johann Sebastian Bach’s famous domains ‒ and to the St. Nicholas Church. You don’t need to book a date for your scavenger hunt.

Die Rätsel waren wirklich einfach und auch mit Kindern gut machbar. Wir heben uns die letzten Stationen noch für nächstes Jahr auf. Tipp für die Macher: Eine Karte von der Innenstadt mit den einzelnen Stationen drauf wäre vielleicht noch schön. Evtl sogar mit freirubbeln der jeweiligen Nummer, wenn man sie erledigt hat.

tolle Idee - hat echt Spaß gemacht, aber die Rätsel waren ein bisschen zu einfach und teilweise hat die Bilderauswahl auf den Karten zu viel verraten. Rätsel waren nur anhand der Bilder lösbar. Dennoch würden meine Tochter und ich es bei unserer nächsten Städtetour wieder machen.

Insgesamt hat uns diese Art der Stadtführung gut gefallen. Wir konnten die Stadt erkunden, wichtige Sehenswürdigkeiten entdecken und je nach Lust und Laune eine Pause einlegen. Großer Negativpunkt waren jedoch die Beschreibungen der Sehenswürdigkeiten auf den Rückseiten der Karten - viel zu viel Text und unnötige Infos!! Unser Vorschlag wäre, die Infos nur in Stichpunkten auf die Karten zu drucken und schöne wären auch ab und zu kleine Anekdoten oder ein witzige Geschichte bezüglich der Sehenswürdigkeit anstelle von bloßen Fakten. Meiner Erfahrung nach werden Jahreszahlen schnell wieder vergessen (also 2-4 pro Karte reichen vollkommen), während witzige Geschichten/Legenden noch lange im Gedächtnis bleiben.
