Discover the "Brückenaffe" of Heidelberg and much more

Explore Heidelberg with City&Quest

The Church of the Holy Spirit in the heart of the Old Town of Heidelberg is your starting point. From there, the ca. 3 km long route leads to 11 other City&Quest locations – most of which are located in the middle of the city centre, some a little distance outside. Duration on foot: ca. 2.5 hrs. The GPS feature of the free Actionbound app helps you get from location to location, so you can go tracking down and lionizing the unique buildings. You can interrupt the game as you like. In this way you explore Heidelberg’s most beautiful faces!



Hard to top – you only pay € 33 per team!


by smartphone plus equipment


Put together your team, including your family, friends, acquaintances, colleagues. Your group can be of any size. As an ideal group size for the game we recommend 2-6 people. Children under 12 years should be accompanied by an adult. Another group can start the game in parallel but in the reverse direction.


Download the Actionbound app for free from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store with your smartphone or tablet. Alternatively, you can download the app via www.actionbound.com/bound/cityquest. During your City&Quest game the app helps you find the spots and type in your solutions.


Borrow your City&Quest bag at Hostel Lotte (see below). Inside the bag, you will find the necessary equipment to solve the puzzles. The price is € 33 to borrow one bag per team. This requires a deposit (€ 50 in cash) that you will get back upon your bag return. Watch out: Please return the complete bag at the rental station during the respective service times!


You'll need plenty of time and stamina. For the 3-km distance, you will need about 2.5 hours on foot. During your game, you can pause as you like. If you want to get along faster, you can also do the game by bike. The bicycle rental system VRNnextbike offers cheap hire bikes at different locations in the city.
