Full description
Get to know the Austrian capital by playing an exciting scavenger hunt. Start at St. Stephen's Cathedral, get to know the famous shopping street "Graben" and discover the Votiv Church, the Vienna City Hall and the famous Burgtheater. The historic square Heldenplatz, the Vienna Hofburg and the square Michaelerplatz also await you during your scavenger hunt. Learn about the history of the city of Vienna, the coffee house culture and the famous Albertina. Let your day end with a piece of delicious Viennese Sacher cake and a cup of coffee. Here is how the city game of Vienna works: One box contains 16 sealed and numbered envelopes. These are small tasks that have to be solved. Guided by clear and unambiguous directions, you will walk through Vienna. Decipher the puzzles and let yourself be guided to the next sight of Vienna. Decide on your own when you want to start your scavenger hunt tour of Vienna and how long you want to stay at the different locations. Let yourself drift on a mysterious and extraordinary tour. You can take a break at any time or continue the tour on another day of your choice - whatever you like.

A nice treasure hunt through the center of Vienna. Very nicely done with lots of information. Take your time. It says 5 -6 hours, take that time too or even count on a little longer with lunch. I even think it's fun with young teens, then spread it out over 2 days.

We (group of girls) had a lot of fun with the scavenger hunt, learned a lot about the city and sights. Great idea, we would do it again in the next city at any time. It's also great that you can determine the speed of the tour yourself, decide when you want to take a break or when you want to continue.

It was a great way to get to know the city!

If you want to explore a city differently than with the traditional city tours, the scavenger hunt is really recommended. Due to the puzzles, you can take a closer look and it is sometimes much more interesting than a conventional city tour. Especially when you are traveling as a group it is a lot of fun and you work a lot together. Of course you get a lot of interesting information from the game and you can read it again later.
