    Discover Hallstatt, learn its fascinating history, and visit its attractions while you solve clues around town. Each clue will lead you from one place to another by providing you with exact directions so you won't need a map, GPS, or guide. As you solve the problem and guess the answer, the secret story of that place is unlocked. Receive all instructions via email after booking, go to the starting point, and begin the adventure. Play as a group and solve the clues together, or split into smaller teams and compete against the others. The tour will take you about 1.5 hours to complete, but there’s no time limit so feel free to go at your own pace.
