How it works?
Go to the starting point of the Detective-Trail, which is mentioned on the Detective-Trail map (print Detective-Trail map – see “Order Detective-Trails”) or in the web app. The first puzzle is already waiting there. Then follow the route descriptions. You will come across mystery posts where a puzzle awaits you. The puzzles you can solve with clues at this location. Additionaly you learn a lot of interesting and surprising facts about the corresponding city and region.
At the end you will find out if you are a master of detective by verifying the code. The verification of the code takes place either with a lock on a treasure chest (small gift in the treasure chest) or an SMS code (small gift with subsequent delivery). The four-digit code is calculated from the solutions of the mysterys.
Who pays how much?
No advance booking necessary
Participation does not require any advance registration – everyone can decide for themselves when they want to set off on Detective-Badgers mystery adventure.

Detective-Trails are designed for children and adults – with support the trails can be solved from about 7 years, without support the mystery can be solved from about 14 years. The degree of difficulty (easy, medium, difficult) is different for each Detective-Trail. The difficulty is indicated in the product overview. Detective-Trails are ideal for families, clubs, couples, schools and companys.
How to do a trail with large groups?
If you want to do the trail with large groups (only possible with a printed Detective-Trail map), we recommend forming small groups of approx. 5 people. Each group starts one after the other in small time intervals (approx. 5-10 min.).
Play with the print version (printable Detective-Trail map) or in the web app
The Detective-Trails can be completed using a printed Detective-Trail map or in the web app. You can decide how you prefer to play after purchasing the Detective-Trail. All participants of 6 or more pay the same for the Detective-Trail experience (see also: who pays how much?). Here you have a sample map of a Detective-Trail: View Detective-Trail map (in german).
For some trails, the Detective-Trail map can be purchased at a local sales point (see information at the respective trail). If you want to play the Detective-Trail in the web app, you will find this option under “My account” after purchasing the Detective-Trail.
