What is it?

Mystery City Games are a mix between a scavenger hunt,  escape room, and walking tour. It’s a bit like the Da Vinci Code or National Treasure – it’s about using clues hidden in the architecture of the city to solve a mystery. It’s an escape room in Amsterdam like no other and should definitely be included in your ‘top 10 things to do in Amsterdam’!. No app or phone is needed – we think treasure hunts are more fun with real treasure maps, locks, and beautiful pieces. 

How It Works:

  • You will meet the Game Master at our Secret Headquarters next to the Waterlooplein to pick up a backpack containing all of the materials that you need to play: treasure maps, boxes, locks, and beautiful tools – this is not an app!
  • Follow an ancient treasure map as you walk through Amsterdam city center or old Jewish quarter discovering must-see city sites and monuments such as Nieuwmarkt, the Old Church,  Torensluis, Westermarkt, the Shadow Wall, Rembrantplein, and much more!
  • Solve puzzles while exploring Amsterdam’s top attractions and having fun with your friends or family on a holiday, bachelorette party, or weekend out. If you only have one day in Amsterdam, this is the way to see it!
  • Learn true stories from the city’s history
