The year is 1548.

The Holy Roman Empire dispatches Kaspar Spiess, the chief-inquisitor of the Emperor, to the Free City of Frankfurt to track down and locate stolen relics from the Cathedral of Saint Bartholomew.

There’s growing discontent within the city. After years of war with the Protestant Schmalkaldic League, the Imperial Free City is now once again under direct Imperial control, with Catholicism returned to power.

The theft of priceless relics from a Catholic church is a blatant affront to the Emperor, and only agents of the Schmalkaldic League would dare to be so bold. An attack on the church is an attack on the empire, and the relics must be returned swiftly.

After hours of grueling travel, there’s no time to lose. Track down the thieves and locate the missing relics. The Holy Roman Empire demands it!

Die Tour war sehr informativ, was uns gut gefallen hat. Auch die aufgesuchten Orte waren ganz gut gewählt. Die Texte allerdings bedürfen einer redaktionellen Überarbeitung. Die Rätsel waren aufgrund der bereits im Haupttext angegebenen "Lückentexte", die Hinweise auf das Lösungswort geben, zu simpel. Auf diese sollte ganz verzichtet werden. Der "Brunnen" im 2. Rätsel hat übrigens kein Wasser mehr.
