We booked this on a Sunday and did it as a couple! It was a lot of fun and also very informative. It's also great that you can take a break at any time and that's how we discovered some nice cafes. Highly recommended 😊

Interesting! But it’s assumed that a minimum of 2 persons will go for it! I used it alone! Plus there were times when it was unclear what was required of the puzzle! No questions on screen!

Great activity to explore the city and sights in an entertaining way. At the same time, you discover other beautiful things like alleys, cafes, etc. Great idea with the scavenger hunt 👍

The explanations during the tour were particularly interesting. The background gives you a better insight.

A well-guided insight into the old town of Lübeck.
