Easily! Solve A Mystery is the perfect activity for the family.

We believe that the experience will be best if the children are 10 years old or above, as they will be able to pick up the clues and understand the tasks.

Children aged 13 and above should be able to solve the mysteries themselves.

No. The experience is only outside and there are no hidden or extra fees.

Our experiences are sold per person, similar to other city walks, tourist tours, and escape rooms.

Regarding the provided materials, we have a slogan called “minimum waste,” which means that we care about nature and the resources we use.

That’s why we carry the Swan and environmental labels, which plant trees to offset the resources we use for printing. Therefore, we provide one set of papers for every four participants instead of giving everyone individual papers.

We have conducted tests and surveys that show that four people sharing a set of papers is optimal for everyone to be able to see them and be equally engaged. If the group is larger, fitting amounts of material will be provided.

We hope that as a group, you can share the papers and help protect the environment. We hope for your understanding.

Our experience is inspired by real and authentic cases, in other words, crimes that have been committed.

It is up to you and your group to take on the role of a detective/criminal investigator.

You will solve various tasks and clues throughout the mystery’s self-guided tour and hopefully solve them correctly, bringing you closer to the solution.

In the end it is time for you to point out the guilty perpetrator, at this moment you are allowed to open the last chapter named “conclusion” to discover the truth about the case.

By comparing your conclusion to what happened in the real life case you will find out the solution and see if your suspicions were correct.

There are two things you should keep in mind.

Firstly, the experience takes place outside, hence you need to consider the weather.

Secondly, the tour is about 1,5-2 km in relatively flat urban terrain (not tons of stairs and hills), so a comfortable pair of walking shoes is recommended.

Yes. After you have collected the mystery, you can do it whenever you wish!

We recommend doing it while there is daylight for an optimal experience (partly to be able to read the information in the envelope, but also to gather clues in your surroundings).
