Frankfurt: Old Town Wonders Exploration Game and Tour

1. Frankfurt: Old Town Wonders Exploration Game and Tour

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.

Frankfurt: Scary Sightseeing Tour with The Hangman

2. Frankfurt: Scary Sightseeing Tour with The Hangman

Enjoy a 1-hour walk through Frankfurt at night with a robed hangman as your guide. Follow your scary guide (if you dare) on a journey of discovery of Frankfurt's history and his bloody work. But while you listen to your guide, be aware, for he must finish his work and he has no time to waste because the devil is after him.  Start your journey into the past at the cathedral, where German kings and emperors were elected and crowned. Continue towards the bank of the Main where many culprits, mostly women, were drowned in the water. Finally, reach your final stop, the Römer, Frankfurt's famous Town Hall, where you will learn all about the Römerberg's gruesome past as the location of many medieval death penalty punishments and torture chambers.

A very cool alternative if you want to explore the city but don't feel like a boring guided tour. My girlfriend and I had a lot of fun and we were able to discover the beautiful corners of Frankfurt in a playful way. In terms of price, it is also totally okay. We recommend!

A very good overview of the history of Frankfurt. Not too many numbers but the essentials. Interesting anecdotes and short stories about the older and more recent past of Frankfurt. I can only warmly recommend it.

The quest was exciting and informative. What I liked most was that you can do the tasks at your own pace. That made it possible for me to have a pleasant city tour even during pregnancy. :)

A wonderful, informative bike tour with guide Marvin. We were very satisfied and would be happy to recommend this experience to others.

Nice guide, interesting tour and good information. RECOMMENDED!
