Full description
Explore the beautiful Elbe castles and the area around the famous Blue Miracle Bridge in a unique way. The City Game Box contains 11 sealed and numbered envelopes with small puzzles that need to be solved. Guided by clear directions, make your way on foot, by bus, train or bike to the beautiful Elbe River castles of Dresden and to the area around the Blue Miracle Bridge. Each solved puzzle will yield a number that will tell you which envelope to open next. You will not know in advance what order the scavenger hunt city envelopes need to be opened. The envelopes will also contain detailed background information of each attraction - its history, its current use and much more. Decide for yourself when to start your Scavenger Hunt City Tour and how much time to spend at each location. Embark on an enigmatic and extraordinary tour and take a break from your City Game whenever you feel like it, or even continue your scavenger hunt on a different day – it’s completely up to you. There will be numerous cafes, restaurants and beer gardens along the way, so feel free to give in to the temptation to rest and linger. Start the game at Albrechtsberg Castle and walk through its beautiful park to the castle’s Roman baths. The neighboring Lingner Castle will also be worth a visit. Continue by bus, train or bike to Dresden’s suspension railway. If you want, make your way up the Elbe slope and enjoy a fantastic view of the picturesque Elbe Valley from there. Discover the Körnerplatz and the Friedrich-Wiek-Haus. Next, make your way down to the Old Fährhaus on the Elbe River, where beautiful beer gardens will provide an ideal spot for a break. Also not to be missed will be the famous Loschwitz Bridge, the Blue Miracle. No need to schedule your Scavenger Hunt City Tour for a certain date, simply order the City Game Box and have it delivered to your home, or make an appointment to pick it up in Dresden within the opening hours and you’re good to go.

Es war ein sehr schöner Ausflug. Wir haben Dresden mal von einer ganz anderen Seite kennen gelernt. Die Rätsel waren alle einfach zu lösen. Nur bei einer Aufgabe hatten wir Probleme und mussten uns mit Google weiterhelfen. Wir sollten die Säulen vor dem Römischen Bad am Schloß Albrechtsberg zählen. Dazu hätte man sich direkt davor stellen müssen. Dort war aber alles mit Bauzäunen abgesperrt, sodass wir nicht direkt dort hinkamen.

War schön durchgedacht und mit viel Liebe vorbereitet. Mit ganz tollen Bildern, viele Hintergrundinfos und einfachen Aufgaben war auch alles gut zu finden.Leider waren 2 Stationen nicht anzutreffen, da es Baustellen gab. Das war etwas schade. Aber alles in einem eine schöne Sache und wir würden es wieder machen.

Wir haben mit 6 Personen die Schnitzeljagd zu den Elbschlössern mit dem Fahrrad erlebt und waren sehr zufrieden. Wir konnten durch die vielen Informationen Dresden auch von einer anderen Seite kennen lernen. Leider konnten wir am Schloss Albrechtsberg die Aufgabe nicht lösen, da die Brunnenanlage" Das römische Bad" komplett gesperrt war. Alles andere hat uns super gut gefallen.Vielen Dank
