The idea for the game was a little whimsical at first, but coupled with the beauty of the Südfriedhof, it was definitely worth it. With its parks and a portion of curiosity that this game arouses, the walk across the southern cemetery is a special experience.

Timely dispatch of the documents. Painstakingly designed maps told us a lot about the individual waypoints. I would book it again for any other city.
