Passau
Known as Dreiflüssestadt (City of Three Rivers), Passau is the place where the Danube meets the Inn and the Ilz. The picturesque city lies in Germany’s far southeast corner near the Austrian border. Settled since prehistory and a former hub of the salt trade, it became the Roman village of Batavis, then later the Holy Roman Empire’s largest diocese and a sword-making center. Saint Stephan’s Cathedral, home of the world’s second-largest cathedral organ, is one of Passau’s favorite attractions.

This outstanding fun for friends of adventure and hints is located in the middle of the old town in a quaint vault. Also, youexit is perfect for teambuilding for companies and clubs. We will lock you into one of our thematically different rooms and it's your goal to escape! To escape you don't have to be an rocket engineer. Our quests don't depend on the language you speak. Suddenly, you will be caught by the atmosphere of our game and lose every sense of time. That's why a countdown on the wall tells you the time left. We can't guarantee that you will be able to escape, but we can ensure that you will have an unforgettable experience! less
