City Treasure Hunt with your smartphone

Discover the city with tricky puzzles and an exciting story or experience an adventure right at home. This requires skill, keen power of observation and a lot of fun.

Scavenger Hunt and city treasure hunt

Form one or two teams with your friends and solve one of our URBANmissions.

The URBANmissions city are indoor or outdoor. The outdoor URBANmissions are usually played in a certain part of the city. Since they take place in a relatively small area (e.g. old town), there is no need for long walks or use of public transport between the individual puzzles. The game is compact and does not lose its tension.

The URBANmissions home can be played anywhere, because they are not tied to any particular environment. You can play the game in the comfort of your own home.


Fight against time:

All games are timed and must be solved in the allotted time! The duration of the game is usually between 60 and 150 minutes.

Games with several teams:

Most URBANmissions can be played in a duel. Which team will be the first to solve all the puzzles correctly and will win the game?

This is how you play an URBANmission:

Step 1:

Find the right URBANmission in your city and buy it on our webpage.

Step 2:

Download our free app in App Store or Google Play to your smartphone or tablet.

We wish you a lot of fun!

What is a URBANmission?

Frequently asked questions about the scavenger hunt app with escape games in your city or at home

What is an URBANmission?

A URBANmission is an outdoor escape game that takes place in a city district or on a walkable terrain. Tricky puzzles embedded in a funny story have to be solved in a given time.

Do we have to use public transport during the game?

No. All URBANmissions take place in a relatively small area and the distances between the puzzles are short. Thus the game is compact and does not lose its tension. For the vast majority of puzzles, it is not even possible to move between them by public transport.

Do I need internet access during the game?

Once you have loaded a mission into the app, you generally do not need internet.

An exception are puzzles made with augmented reality (AR). The mobile phone/tablet with which you will use AR needs internet access.

However, each mission is also developed in a version without AR so that you can play it without internet. See the note for each mission.

However, internet is always necessary to download the app and the purchased URBANmission to your mobile phone/tablet. You can do this without any problems at home using your wifi.

Internet is also necessary for the transmission of the achieved score at the end of the game. This can also be done at home if you connect to the Wifi. You must then select the mission you have played again and click through to the last screen. Then the points are transmitted and you can view your result in the ranking list.

How large should a team be?

For most URBANmissions we recommend a team size of 2-5 people.

Can two or more teams play simultaneously and or against each other?

Most missions can be played in duels in two or more teams. Note the corresponding comment for each mission.

What does duel mean?

Duel is a game variant in which two or more teams play against each other. All teams have to solve the same puzzles, but in a different order.

At the end all teams compare the achieved score.

What happens if I realize on site that my battery is too low or the gps is not working?

You can return the redeemed voucher code on your phone/tablet and use it on another device. You can return it via the trash can icon on the first screen of the mission.

Very important: once a mission has been started, i.e. time is running, it cannot be returned. So make sure that your battery is sufficiently charged.

How should i dress?

Make sure you are dressed appropriately for the weather. The outdoor URBANmissions take place outside during the whole game.

Can I play in English?

Most missions are also playable in English. Note the appropriate language option for each mission and select the appropriate language when booking.
