Great tour through Lübeck with lots of information about individual sights. The puzzles are easy to solve for all ages. We found it all very fitting for us as first-time visitors to this wonderful city. We particularly liked the fact that we were able to do the tour at our own pace. This also left us time for a little shopping and a stop at the café was possible without any problems. So everything is very relaxed, as it should be on vacation. Our “kids” (15,17) also really liked it. Many thanks to the organization team for this offer.

This is a completely different way to discover Lübeck. You go at your own pace and can take a break every now and then to strengthen yourself. The route is perfectly designed to see all the sights. I can recommend this scavenger hunt for both tourists and locals who want to go sightseeing in their city again.

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 👍
