What people are saying about Baden-Württemberg

quite magical and probably contemporary presentation of van gogh's works as animated large-scale projections. wonderful lyrics and music. you should look for a nice seat and then enjoy 'the show' in peace! I would have liked to have had more floor projections here in cologne, so that I could really immerse myself in them, in other halls there seems to have been a different structure.

Es geht bei dem Spiel nicht um das Kennenlernen der Stadt sondern um mehrere kleine Kriminalfälle (und um einen großen, also um die eigentliche Story). Einige der Kriminalfälle waren recht knifflig, einige etwas einfacher. Uns hat das Konzept sehr gut gefallen.

Good experience to learn about chocolate making. Not a bad choice to spend an hour here. Taste the chocolate straight out of production lane was yummm!

Interesting and fun - perfect for families (and fun for grown ups), and a nice way to discover new parts of the city.

Very good and very easy to get in. You take yourself around, was a good experience
