Full description
Discover Berlin's most interesting places by solving clues around town and unlocking amazing stories. Visit Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, and the Berlin Wall, as well as other locations. Download Questo, the gamified travel app, onto your smartphone, and begin your exciting exploration game. Play the role of a person needing to escape East Berlin in 1984, and see if you can do it. Solve a clue to reveal exact directions to your next stop on the tour, without the need of a map, GPS, or a physical guide. Each solution unlocks an interesting story, and reveals Berlin's secrets. Complete the tour at your own pace as there's no time limit, though around two hours is normally enough. Pause the game at any time, and restart whenever you want from the last place you visited. After purchasing the quest, an access code will be delivered to your email, which can then be used in the downloadable app. Once you have downloaded the app, simply head to the starting point at Potsdamer Platz whenever you choose, and begin your adventure. For larger groups, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group. All group members will be able to play the city game on their smartphone. Alternatively, each person can purchase their own voucher. You can play as a group and solve the clues together as you walk, or you can split into smaller groups/teams and compete against the others. Each person can also play on their own, separate from the group, and meet the group at the end.

We used the app as a family with our two children (13 and 14 years old). A very nice concept to playfully explore East Berlin. At the same time, the children are given a feeling for the situation in former East Berlin before reunification and for the risks that courageous people took to flee from this terror regime. However, we considered one of the tasks to be almost impossible to solve. This should be reconsidered in terms of difficulty. You should also plan 3 hours instead of 2 hours as announced.

The story is quite constructed and not particularly fluid. It often seems badly translated. But the puzzles are easy to solve and all in all we had a lot of fun! In my opinion, it is suitable for children over the age of 10. Rather long for all younger ones.

It is fairly easy if you're from Berlin and know your way around but fun nonetheless. We live close to Potsdamer Platz and never knew about one of the hidden places! Our mind was blown. We enjoyed the historical references and liked that you could start, pause and resume at your own pace. The gamified app was also pretty cool. We will definitely be checking out some of the other tours.
