What people are saying about Heidelberg

We had a great time exploring Heidelberg even though it was freezing. It was cool to have some additional pieces of history provided as we tried to find different landmarks. Our brains weren’t functioning well in the cold and the riddles were frustrating at times but the app lets you skip that part if you want. Overall it was a fun way to see things that we would have probably missed.

Great city tour with little puzzles. Now and then, what was expected of a puzzle was tricky. Then you just had to try it. But this was great fun. Maybe the scavenger hunt could be made a little longer.

auch für jüngere kinder geeignet (unsere sind 7 und 9). wir hatten alle sehr viel spaß! man sollte auf jeden fall genug zum trinken dabei haben.

The puzzles were quite easy. It would be nice if the starting point could be chosen freely.

Puzzle 9 was wrong because there were actually more letters on the line
