Discover the "Bagpiper" of Nuremberg and much more


Explore Nuremberg with City&Quest

The Hauptmarkt 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 to 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 Nuremberg’s most beautiful faces!


Hard to top – you only pay € 45,- (VAT included) per team!


by smartphone plus equipment

Take up the team challenge!

Do you love being active and to be challenged? You want to have fun and to be out together? Are you curious and do you like to use your skill? Then City&Quest is the very game you are looking for. The city rally takes your team to known and lesser-known places in the city, demanding your cleverness, cooperation and creativity!


Put together your team, including your family, friends, acquaintances or colleagues. Your group can be of any size. As an ideal group size for the game we recommend 2 to 6 people. Children under 12 years should be accompanied by an adult. The game is suitable for all ages: from 9 to 99! 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 here. The Actionbound app helps you to find the spots and type in your solutions. Therefore, do not forget to activate the GPS function! Make sure that your battery is charged or pack a power bank so that you aren’t running out of power on the way. One smartphone or tablet per team is enough.


Borrow your City&Quest bag at the rental station (see below). Inside the bag, you will find the necessary equipment to solve the puzzles. The price is € 45,- 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 distances of the tours, you will need about 2.5 hours on foot. During your game, you can pause as you like. So plan enough time for your stops so that you can have an ice cream here and there, have a coffee or just let your soul dangle. Who knows, maybe you'll fall in love with one or the other location where you want to stay longer 🙂
