You are Alder, an old man who has spent most of his rather uneventful life toiling hard in Antwerp’s port. Born in Antwerp to poor, illiterate parents, at the tender age of 7, they sent you off to the port to find work. Ever since then, you’ve spent almost every single day loading and unloading ships for a pittance.

You’ve never allowed yourself to dream of anything more, but whether you like it or not, destiny is about to come barging into your simple life by way of a dirty, chipped old teapot!

Some of the puzzles in English don't work and the building with the graffiti from one of the earlier puzzles has been demolished. Needs updating, but overall an entertaining way to get to know this part of the city.

Some codes led to wrong answers. Some info is outdated due to construction work in the city. Every answer has to be 100% correct with zero margin for error. You don't need to buy a ticket for every person in the group, one is enough. However, the website doesn't tell you this.
