The scavenger hunt is really great. Suitable for elementary school children or up to a maximum of 12 years. The children are busy and get to know the city in a playful way. You can set your own pace and see the sights along the way as you please. Our kids loved it. Will definitely be something again when we are in another city.

Lovingly made, nice round through the Albstadt. The puzzles were not a challenge for our boys (10 and 12) but they were proud to lead us. There was some information about each station. So we had our own individual city tour. We took 1.5 days and stopped everywhere if we liked it.

Wir sind sehr oft in Dresden da es unsere Herzensstadt ist. Dieses Jahr haben wir die Kinder auch mitgenommen ( wir sind meist nur 2 Tage zum Dixieland in Dresden) und dafür die Schnitzeljagd für Kids gebucht. Es war ein tolles Erlebnis da wir auch noch überrascht worden sind und sehr viel über diese tolle Stadt gelernt haben.
