Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: A cross between a treasure hunt and an escape room, each Mystery City game combines exploration, puzzle solving and little-known stories from history to transform the way you explore the city. Groups have a fixed amount of time and a set of tactile props to solve real historical mysteries. Race against the clock or just enjoy the adventure - either way, we are sure that you will learn and notice things that can't be found in a normal guide book! During the game you will: - Walk around noticing architectural elements, monuments, and shops - Meet some of the city's past and present inhabitants - Solve puzzles while laughing with your friends - Learn about a true story from the city's history Are you ready?

We had a really cool team outing with the Mystery City tour. We were 4 teams competing against each other making the tour extra fun. The tour has elements that everybody will like: history, walking through beautiful Amsterdam and gaming. What more is there to like?

I did the tour with some friends who live in Amsterdam and we had a great time together solving the challenges and discovered beautiful hidden gems in the city centre. The story is very intriguing and once you start you can't stop until you solve the mystery! 100% recommended!

This was a fantastic and engaging way to see the city. We were able to learn some fun facts about the history of the city and see some sights that aren’t usually part of a general waking tour.
Thanks so much, we had a great time! Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a fun way to see the city and have a great group experience.

Visited Amsterdam in September and played with some friends, and it’s a great game with challenging clues! Each clue makes you walk to different places around the city center, familiarizing you with Amsterdam’s streets, and the history they carry.
Highly recommend

I played this with a friend two weekends ago, and we discovered new things, even though we have both lived in Amsterdam. The props are beautiful and definitely make the mystery seem real. Would recommend for families or companies as well!
