Full description
A brand new way to explore Copenhagen, as you step into the story of The Little Mermaid. This self-guided walking tour game takes you from Kongens Nytorv, and the theatre where author H. C. Andersen worked in his early years, via Nyhavn and out to Langelinie – where the Little Mermaid sits on a rock looking out over the ocean. Experience the classic tale of The Little Mermaid as a StoryKeeper recruit. The tour is narrated by Frederik, a Danish StoryKeeper eager to share this adventure with you. Together with Frederik you will explore some of the most famous sights in Copenhagen, while you help him search for clues hidden in the buildings and statues in your surroundings. When you find the hidden clues, interactive elements and puzzles will pop up on the screen of your smartphone. Once you solve those puzzles, further parts of the mermaid's tale will unlock and bring you closer to the conclusion of the story. To walk this tour, you will download a separate app to your phone. An e-mail with all instructions will be sent to you after the purchase is complete. Please make sure to read through it before you go. You will be guided through the city with both visual and audio aid to ensure that you walk in the right direction. The tour will be yours to keep. You can use it at any time and as many times as you wish. Go to the starting point of the tour, open the app, put your headphones on - and your Copenhagen adventure will begin! This tour is perfect for the solo traveler, as well as for families or couples. Since the tour is self-guided, you are able to start, pause and finish the tour whenever you like, and it will be a 100% private experience. You can choose between listening to the audio while you walk, or reading the story yourself/to your group. If you plan on listening to the audio, it is recommended that each participant have their own phone with headphones for the best possible experience.

A fun experience. Seeing some beautiful sights and landmarks whilst solving problems along the way. The narration was brilliant too. A fair bit of walking but you can stop at any time for a break then continue where you left off. We really enjoyed it and the final destination ticked one off my bucket list!
