There is life beyond Grand-Place! Play a city game and explore the streets of Brussels while you solve challenges and learn the fascinating history behind each exciting location. 


Come and discover the origins of the city: its port, nowadays converted into the lively Place Sainte-Catherine; the first city walls, which surrounded the cathedral; the Royal palace, its noble quarters such as the Grand Sablon, plus huge monuments such as the Palais de Justice!


Highlights:

  • Meet Jeanneke, sister of a certain famous child.
  • Enjoy a stunning view of the palace from Poelaert viewpoint.
  • Stroll along the picturesque Mont des Arts.
  • Discover what happened at the Monnaie Opera...

Each clue will lead you from one place to another by providing you with exact directions so you won't need a map, GPS, or guide. As you solve the problem and guess the answer, the secret story of that place is unlocked.


After you buy the quest, you'll get your access code by e-mail which will be used in the app. The tour will take you about 1.5 hours to complete, but there’s no time limit which will allow you to go at your own pace. You won't need a guide, just download the app, go to the starting point, and begin the adventure.


If you are a large group, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group. All group members will be able to play the city game on their smartphone. Alternatively, each person can purchase their own ticket.


You can play as a group and solve the clues together as you walk, or you can split into smaller groups/teams and compete against the others. Each person can also play on their own, separate from the group and meet the group at the end of the tour.
