Full description

Explore exciting Berlin on your own with this scavenger hunt tour that gives families, school classes and day-trippers the opportunity to get to know Berlin in a unique way. The compact version of the Berlin City Scavenger Hunt will lead you to the most famous sights of this vibrant city. The starting point for this unique Scavenger Hunt City Walk through Berlin will be the World Clock at Alexanderplatz. Continue on to the TV tower, which offers a wonderful view of the city of Berlin from its observation deck (ticket not included in the price). A puzzle will also await you at Berlin Cathedral, a perfect spot to take a little breather. You will be able to take a break from the Scavenger Hunt City Tour Berlin whenever you feel like it. Perhaps you would like to take a closer look at the Berlin Cathedral, for example, or visit the Pergamon Museum on Museum Island. Afterwards, continue on to the Neue Wache, the Humboldt University and probably the most beautiful place in Berlin, the Gendarmenmarkt with its picturesque French and German Cathedrals. Needless to say, the puzzles will also lead you to Pariser Platz, where the symbol of Berlin, Brandenburg Gate, stands. The tour will end at Potsdamer Platz with its famous Sony Center. The city game box contains 9 sealed and numbered envelopes with puzzles that need to be solved. Guided by clear and unambiguous directions, you will make your way through Berlin. Solve the puzzles and let the clues lead you to the next destination. The envelopes will also contain detailed background information of each attraction - its history and today's use, which can be used, among other things, for follow-up in class.

  • Scavenger hunt box (including shipping)

Within a short time (3 hours) we saw many beautiful sights in a playful way. The game and the paths to the individual stations are explained very well and my teenagers really had a lot of fun. At each station you could read the corresponding card and thus education & culture, combined with games and fun, were in one box. The investment was worth it and we haven't laughed so much in a long time. Without this treasure chest, I would never have seen so many beautiful sights in one day with my teenagers. A little tip: don't forget your backpack with provisions. Because the scavenger hunt makes you hungry and thirsty. Then we went on a shopping tour and it was a wonderful day for all of us...

The tour was interesting and fun - including my 13 and 10 year old sons. You can see the most important things in Berlin. The explanations are clear. In the end it took us almost 6 hours because we made a stop in the sun at each station to read the texts, take photos and here and there also look left and right, eat, drink, take in Berlin . I recommend the tour and suggest that everyone give a tip in advance as to which envelope is next. Whoever was right was allowed to open the next envelope and read it. Suggestion to the "doers": add a small section of the city map (with pen / pencil) on which you can enter the tour. Then you can follow the route again afterwards.

a really good idea - you are really active!

We didn't want to just swim in the stream of tourists. Just finding the business was entertaining. We got into conversation with a number of people who wanted to help us and also helped. The thing with the envelopes was a good idea and we (as supposedly good observers and attentive tourists) often had to take a closer look or go back to answer the questions. The reference to the solutions in the last envelope was also helpful, but was not needed. A nice enrichment!
