How it works

Go to the starting point of the treasure hunt marked on the treasure map (paper map to print out or in the app). There the first puzzle awaits you. Once you have solved it, follow the route description. Along the way, you will repeatedly come past locations at which tricky puzzles await you. There will be clues at each location to help you solve the puzzle.

Solve the puzzle, find the treasure, and win a small instant prize

At the end of the trail, the detectives will find a treasure chest – either a real one or a virtual one. The four-digit numeric code to open the treasure chest is revealed by combining the solutions of the individual puzzles. Once the treasure chest opens, the participants can take away the small instant prize contained inside. With the virtual treasure chest, the participants can use a voucher with the treasure code to claim a small instant prize at the final destination.
