Embark on the 'Greatest Escapes' quest in Berlin, a captivating exploration of daring escapes that punctuated the Cold War era. Your adventure begins at the Leipziger Platz. Next, your journey takes you to the remnants of the Berlin Wall, providing insight into the physical and ideological barriers that escapees had to overcome. As you solve puzzles and follow the trail, you’ll visit the iconic Checkpoint Charlie, where many escape attempts were staged. Here, you’ll learn about the creative and often dangerous methods that individuals used to cross from East to West Berlin. The quest will also guide you through lesser-known sites that played crucial roles in the escape stories. You’ll be led to various points where tunnels were dug and secret passages were used, all while absorbing the poignant stories of those who risked everything for freedom. Conclude your experience at the Brandeburger Gate, where views of both former East and West Berlin offer a symbolic perspective on the unity and division of the past. This immersive quest not only provides a historical overview but also challenges you with engaging puzzles that bring the stories of Berlin's greatest escapes to life. Complete the experience at your own pace as there's no time limit, though around two hours is normally enough. Pause the game at any time, and restart whenever you want from the last place you visited. After you book the game, you’ll get an email with instructions on how to play. For larger groups, 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. After booking, you can play anytime without rescheduling.
