Discover Karl Friedrich and much more in Karlsruhe

Have fun exploring the city!

There it is - the new city puzzle game! Its name: "City&Quest Karlsruhe". Its mission: exploring the city through solving puzzles. And now also available in English! You feel like learning about the city in a different way? You like solving puzzles? You like being together with more people? Then "City&Quest" offers the perfect combination for you and your team. Experience exciting details together. A special group experience that is fun and makes you feel up for more!

The Square of Basic Rights between the Market Square and the Palace is your starting point. From there, the ca. 4 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. Duration by bike: ca. 2 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 Karlruhe’s most beautiful faces!


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 one of two rental stations (see below). Inside the bag, you will find the necessary equipment to solve the puzzles. The rental fee is € 25 to borrow one bag per team. This also requires a deposit that you will get back upon your bag return. Watch out: Please return the complete bag at the same station you obtained it from and during the respective opening times!


You'll need plenty of time and stamina. For the 4-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 in about 2 hours. The bicycle rental system Fächerrad offers cheap hire bikes at different locations in the city.
