Full description
Discover Frankfurt’s fascinating history and attractions while you solve clues around the Old Town. Explore this beautiful German city by playing a quest with your friends, significant other, or family. Embark on an adventure where each clue will lead you from one place to another, giving you exact directions, so you won't need a map, a GPS, or a guide. When you solve it and guess the answer, the secret story of that place is unlocked. Book the quest and receive your access code by email that can be used in the app. The tour will take you up to two hours to complete, but there’s no time limit, so go at your own pace. You won't need a guide, just download the app, go to the starting point, and be ready to begin the adventure. All group members will be able to play the city game on their smartphones. You can play as a group and solve the clues together as you walk. Or you can split into smaller groups/teams and compete against the other groups. Each person can also play on their own, separate from the group and meet the group at the end.

The old town wonder begins at the cathedral. Unfortunately, in the first riddle you can find two buildings that match the riddle and after entering the solution (when the wrong building was found) you are looking completely wrong, since the following path description also leads to suitable markings. Then you can't solve anything. It took us more than 30 minutes to get back to the start and find the right way with a tip. After that everything was logical and easy to find.

Unfortunately, the system is not mature! For example, we solved the first puzzle correctly: when asked about the symbol of justice, we entered "scales". That didn't go through. According to Questo, "scales" was correct!!! We had booked a German version of the game. That was very demotivating! Questo also only let the resolution for the Iron Bridge pass as an English name (padlocks) instead of locks! The end of the puzzle then remained open after 90 minutes of suspense... All in all, it was still fun and we learned a lot of new things! A revision would do well!

Me and my bf did this for one of our days in Frankfurt lol! It took us a few hours bc we stopped at like two cafes for coffee and then later a little beer & food. It was freezing outside when we did it so we needed breaks to feel our fingers again! But overall I THOROUGHLY enjoyed doing this and hope that other places I go in Germany have similar places! I loved doing this and my bf is super smart with history so he got the hard questions right and I got the easy one ahah but I highly recommend for a cheap little activity !
