Full description
Discover Salzburg's most interesting places by solving clues around town and unlocking amazing stories. Visit the Do-Re-Mi stairs, Salzburg Dom, Salzburger Marionettentheater, Nonnberg church, and other iconic locations. Download an interactive application and begin your exciting exploration game. Your mission is to help the Von Trapp family from The Sound of Music escape Salzburg before WW2. Solve clues to reveal exact directions to your next stop on the tour, without the need of a map, GPS, or a physical guide. Each solution unlocks an interesting story and reveals Salzburg's secrets. Complete the tour at your own pace as there's no time limit, though around 2 hours is usually enough time. Pause the game at any time, and restart whenever you want from the last place you visited. After purchasing the quest, an access code will be delivered to your email, which can then be used in the downloadable app. Once you have downloaded the app, simply head to the starting point at Mirabellplatz whenever you choose and begin your adventure. If you are a large group, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group. All group members will be able to play the city game on their smartphone. Alternatively, each person can purchase their own ticket. 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 others. Each person can also play on their own, separate from the group, and meet the group at the end.

It's a nice idea. Although everything was in English, everything was well explained and you get to see the "most important" sights of the city. As the name suggests, the game is very much based on the film, but it is also somewhat understandable for a non-connoisseur, not least with the help of the information. Sometimes it can be a little difficult to find your way around if you haven't already seen certain places before, but here again the support scores. After a few moments we got help via live chat. With Getyourguide this app was even 60% cheaper ...
