Hamburg, 1582.
The city flourishes with its mercantile prosperity and marine might. Many come to the city seeking fortune or fleeing prosecution.

Your name is Abraham Ruah, a Sephardic Jew who has fled the inquisition in Portugal. For you, Hamburg is a place of opportunity and freedom. The city has everything, but it’s missing good food. You’ve decided to sell the small fish cakes your grandma used to make.

You’re at the pier getting the cod when you feel a blade on your neck. This can’t be good.

Ein schöner Trip, aber die Lösung der ersten Aufgabe wurde nicht angenommen. Die Aufgabe an der Baumwallstation ergibt ein fehlerhaftes Wort, lässt sich dann aber erraten. Wir hatten auf alle Fälle unseren Spaß.

We could not find one of the clues but you quite a lot of the harbour and also get some insights. Riddles are neither very hard nor very easy. Once you get it, its easily solvable

oft schlecht beschrieben und ziemlich schwere Fragen.

good story, directions were sometimes a wee bit missleading. Some of the riddles/clues were not correkt, but thats okay because the whole tour is in the phase of testing.
