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

Amazing and unusual local experience
I went on the puzzle walk with my boyfriend, can totally recommend this as a couples activity. It is super fun to solve the puzzles together, it was not too hard, even though some of them made us pretty puzzled at first. Super cute story and amazing artwork also.
Even though I have lived in Copenhagen for more than 10 years, this made me look at the area worth new eyes. Recommend it for locals and tourists alike!

Great way to experience Kødbyen
Had a lot of fun trying out the Kødbyen puzzle walk in December with my girlfriend. Have been in Copenhagen many times, but this experience was new to me and a great way to explore Kødbyen. Great puzzles and a good challenge! It was a surprise gift for my girlfriend.

Great original way to explore Copenhagen
Once in a while I come across a company that impresses me. This is one of them. Original, slightly quirky and fun. I can definitely recommend it if you want to explore the city in a different way and enjoy a puzzle or 2.

We had a wonderful time solving puzzles and exploring Kødbyen. I’ve been there countless times before, but the puzzle walk shed a new light on the area. I’m really looking forward to upcoming puzzle walks!
