Full description
Discover Dresden’s historic city centre in a wholly new way with the Scavenger Hunt City Game. This is how the Scavenger Hunt City Game works: The city game box contains 11 sealed and numbered envelopes, each holding riddles that need to be solved. Following clear and precise directions, you will be taken on a walk through Dresden’s wonderful historic city centre. Solve the riddles to find your way to the various sights. Once you solve a riddle you will be given a number, which reveals which envelope to open next. You don’t know ahead of time in which succession the Scavenger Hunt City Game envelopes need to be opened. Additionally, for all the sights you visit, you will receive detailed information regarding their historical background, current use, and much more. It’s up to you when to start your Scavenger Hunt City Game through Dresden’s historic city centre and also how long you wish to stay at each location. Let yourself be transported on a mysterious and unconventional tour! You can take a break from your City Game at any time or even continue your Scavenger Hunt on another day – just as you like. You will pass numerous cafes and restaurants, perfect for lingering a while whenever you feel you need a rest. Experience Dresden’s historic city centre with the Scavenger Hunt City Game in a unique way. Simply book the City Game, get it sent to you or pick it up, and you’re ready to go. You start at the Theaterplatz, in the immediate proximity of the Semperoper. Next, you will pass the Augustusbrücke and the Katholische Hofkirche on the way to Brühl’s Terrace. You can also discover the Academy of Fine Arts, with its impressive dome, and the architecturally unique New Synagogue. Of course, you will also see the famous Frauenkirche, the Dresden Castle and the Zwinger. There is no need to make an appointment for your Scavenger Hunt City Game. Simply book the City Game box and get it sent to you (the shipping costs are already included in the price) or notify us and come pick it up during our opening times – then you’re ready to go.

A great way to explore beautiful Dresden! We visited the city in a group of 10 people. The game helped to have decisions on where to go and what to explore first. Would definitely recommend this game to a group. Will certainly have a look-out for a game like this when visiting another city.

Just awesome!!

This was a successful day. Or should I say it was a successful two days? We began the scavenger hunt on Saturday around 11 and were able to take the route at a relaxed pace. We had a lot of fun throughout, took photos and enjoyed the free time. At the Frauenkirche we ended the tour for the day- since we felt like it. We ended the entire tour on Sunday. This was a great way to visit Dresden's old city. We're still thinking about a lot of the things we experienced on this tour. The information is interesting and the assignments that lead you to each spot are easy to finish. You remember the answers. Awesome. Thanks for the lovely idea

Really awesome event for tourists

I booked this trip for my birthday in order to show my friends and acquaintances Dresden without having to know my own way around, and it was a complete success, we all saw what we wanted to see and got as much time as we wanted, and saw everything, such as the Frauenkirche. Whoever doesn't know their way around super well and would like to let others take them on a tour should book this one.
