Description

H.C. Andersen needs your help. His Shadow escaped from the world of the dead and you need to find him. The only thing he left behind was his notebook. Read through the Shadow’s Notebook and follow his footsteps around the Assistens Cemetery. It’s up to you and your group to figure out where the Shadow went.

The package contains a book, a letter with instructions, and a pen. It will lead you on a 2-3 hours scavenger hunt in green and tranquil Assistens Cemetery.

Gather your friends, family, or colleagues and meet them at the specific location that’s written on the package. Open the package, and let the adventure begin!

The book will guide you to different spots in Assistens Cemetery. While wandering in the area, you’ll:

1. Read a story about where you are
2. Solve a puzzle (to solve it, you need to look around for clues); the answer to the puzzle will reveal your next location
3. Go to the next location
4. Repeat from step 1!

Don’t worry, you don’t need to remember all of this. The instructions will be in the package. And if you get stuck there are clues and answers at the end of the book.

A rave from the grave!
A fun exploration of Assistens Kirkegård, solving puzzles at a number of headstones belonging to some of the more colorful characters of Copenhagen’s ancient and more recent past. A great afternoon adventure for those historically inclined, or just looking to learn more about the city in a novel way! 10/10 would recommend

Great way to spend an afternoon in Copenhagen. The whole family participated in solving puzzles, reading aloud and learning about Kødbyen.
