From the order to the implementation of the city rally, everything went wonderfully. The delivered box with the cards looks very valuable and the tasks are easy to perform. We were in Cologne and had to open the envelope once to set up a Christmas market because the destination with the solution was blocked off. During the rally you walk through streets and alleys where you might not have gone on a normal tourist visit. So all in all it was a great day with lots of information.

Hat man einmal das System verstanden, ist der Tag sehr kurzweilig, man erfährt viel über die Stadt. Danach kann man sich ein bischen "Insider" fühlen. Wenn man alle Stationen ausführlich behandelt und zwischendurch hier und da einkehrt (auf ein Kölsch), dann ist man locker den ganzen Tag unterwegs.

Allerdings sollte man die Wochenenden Anfang Mitte November vermeiden, da an den wichtigen Stationen der Weihnachtsmarkt aufgebaut wird und man unter Umständen Hilfe vom Baupersonal benötigt.

Die Straßen sind recht leer und in der Fußgängerzone läuft man nicht ständig gegen andere Passanten. Unter der Woche ist es aber sicherlich auch gut.
