A scavenger hunt through Vienna's city center. The story might be too long for younger kids - my 14 year old enjoyed it. Except for one challenge, all puzzles had to be solved (unfortunately, the basilisk is only visible when the shutters are open)

Very nice idea! You can explore the city on your own and always get reference points, so to speak, where you have to solve puzzles. Some of these are very easy, but still worth it. All in all a great thing, especially in terms of price!

At first we didn't know what to expect, but the game surprised us in a very positive way. A real tip for everyone who likes to puzzle and, above all, want to discuss.

An excellent idea to see Vienna and encourage those less willing walkers to get out and see the sights as they work out the clues for ‘where next’.

This was a fun way to see the city and learn more about it. Would definitely recommend to others.
