Awesome experience! The app was very easy to be used the way this experience is built gave me a very fun time in the city.

We expected more. Too many churches, few main attractions. Would be great if you can also get to the fortress or toy museum or house of nature. For example, if you have the Salzburg Card, you can combine the scavenger hunt with the sights. The only solutions were the pictures. No explanation of what is sought. So you always had to click the help button to get the solution. However, the paths between the individual points were easy and quick to reach and you were not chased across the city. Expandable, but great idea.

The puzzles are just right in terms of difficulty. It's not impossible to solve. It was a lot of fun getting to know the city in a different way.
