From the order to the implementation of the city rally, everything went wonderfully. The delivered box with the cards looks very valuable and the tasks are easy to perform. We were in Cologne and had to open the envelope once to set up a Christmas market because the destination with the solution was blocked off. During the rally you walk through streets and alleys where you might not have gone on a normal tourist visit. So all in all it was a great day with lots of information.

It was great fun. However, you should avoid the weekends at the beginning of mid-November, as the Christmas market is being set up at the important stations and you may need help from the construction staff. You are not allowed to enter the places. It is also recommended to take a Sunday morning. The streets are quite empty and in the pedestrian zone you don't constantly run into other passers-by. During the week it's certainly good too.

We 3 women had a great day. The tour was very nice and the questions solvable. We got to a lot of corners that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. You could take breaks at any time. Clear recommendation for a great girls' day. We slept in the Maternushaus.

The scavenger hunt was interesting, informative and entertaining. It was fun exploring different points in Cologne on foot. And despite a Kölsch break, we finished at a leisurely pace in just under 3 hours. I can highly recommend.

The tour is super entertaining and all steps can be reached quickly on foot. If you skip the intermediate stops and just "graze" the place, you'll get through it much faster :)
