Full description
Explore Leipzig city center in a unique way with a scavenger hunt in German. You will find 11 sealed and numbered envelopes in the city game box. In these envelopes are the challenges, which have to be solved. You receive clear directions and make your way through Leipzig's city center on foot. Solve the riddles and discover the next stop for your tour. The solution to the riddles is always the number of the next envelope. Prior to solving the riddles you don't know the order in which the envelopes for the scavenger hunt/city tour have to be opened. You will also receive detailed information about the history and today's use of each of the sights during the tour. You decide yourself when you want to start your scavenger hunt through Leipzig's city center and how long you want to stay at each site. Stroll through the city at your own pace and experience a an interesting and extraordinary tour. You can stop the tour at any time and continue it on a different day - just as you wish and how it fits your schedule. En route you will find plenty of inviting cafés and restaurants to relax in between stops and enjoy a refreshing pick-me-up. Experience Leipzig with this combined scavenger hunt and city tour in a unique way: An experience for the whole family! These sights await you on your tour: The city game starts at the central train station in Leipzig. Continue to Augustusplatz, where you can see the opera, the cloth hall as well as the so-called “Uni-Riese”, a well-known high-rise building. You will also pass the popular student club Moritzbastei. Not to be missed during your Leipzig tour is the famous restaurant Auerbachs Keller in one of Leipzig’s many arcades, the Mädler Passage. Discover also the beautiful Old Stock Exchange (Alte Handelsbörse) and the town hall during your scavenger hunt. Your tour will also lead you to the St. Thomas Church ‒ one of Johann Sebastian Bach’s famous domains ‒ and to the St. Nicholas Church. You don’t need to book a date for your scavenger hunt.

Nice tour with free time to get to know the city

Overall, we liked this type of city tour. We were able to explore the city, discover important sights and take a break depending on our mood. A big negative point was the descriptions of the sights on the back of the cards - far too much text and unnecessary information! Our suggestion would be to print the information on the cards only in bullet points and beautiful ones would also be small anecdotes from time to time or a funny story about the sight instead of mere facts. In my experience, years are quickly forgotten (2-4 per card are enough), while funny stories / legends remain in the memory for a long time.

That's fun

We know Leipzig through so many other events. Among other things, we have already undertaken a culinary city tour. You also stop at various sights, get a lot of information, look shortly afterwards and continue. With this Schnitzeljadt, you are looking for small details that you would otherwise not notice. All in all, great city game.

Die Rätsel waren wirklich einfach und auch mit Kindern gut machbar. Wir heben uns die letzten Stationen noch für nächstes Jahr auf. Tipp für die Macher: Eine Karte von der Innenstadt mit den einzelnen Stationen drauf wäre vielleicht noch schön. Evtl sogar mit freirubbeln der jeweiligen Nummer, wenn man sie erledigt hat.
