How it works?

The mystery experience for families, clubs, couples, schools and companys

Go on mystery adventures with Detective Badger. Solve the puzzles and experience the region/city where you are. At the end you will find out if you are a master of detective by verifying the code.

Spontaneously and without advance notice.

How it works

Go to the starting point of the Detective-Trail, which is mentioned on the Detective-Trail map (print Detective-Trail map – see “Order Detective-Trails”) or in the app. The first puzzle is already waiting there. Then follow the route descriptions. You will come across mystery posts where a puzzle awaits you. The puzzles you can solve with clues at this location. Additionaly you learn a lot of interesting and surprising facts about the corresponding city and region.

At the end you will find out if you are a master of detective by verifying the code. The verification of the code takes place either with a lock on a treasure chest (small gift in the treasure chest) or an SMS code (without gift). The four-digit code is calculated from the solutions of the mysterys.

Variants of Detective-Trails

 Detective-Trails with treasure chest
With this Detective-Trail variant you find a treasure chest at the end. You need the four-digit code to open the treasure chest and remove your gift from the treasure chest.

 Detective-Trails with voucher
With this Detective-Trail variant you receive a voucher ath the end, which you can redeem against a small gift.

 Detective-Trails without gift
With this Detective-Trail variant there is neither a treasure chest nor a voucher at the end. To complete a Detective-Trail without a gift and find out if you have solved all the mysterys correctly, send an SMS with the four-digit solution code to the specified number.


The Detective-Trails are designed for children and adults – with support the trails can be solved from about 7 years, without support the mystery can be solved from about 14 years. The degree of difficulty (easy, medium, difficult) is different for each Detective-Trail. The difficulty is indicated in the product overview. The Detective-Trails are ideal for families, clubs, couples, schools and companys.

No advance reservation necessary

Detective-Trails cost CHF 9 per person (from 10 persons CHF 8.50 per person, from 20 persons CHF 8 per person). Family tickets (2 adults and max. 3 children) cost CHF 32. Trails without gift cost CHF 6.-. Participation does not require any advance registration – everyone can decide for themselves when they want to set off on Detective-Badgers mystery adventure.

As an app on Google Play or App Store

You can find Detective-Trail as an app in the app stores (iOS and Android) under “MyCityHighlight Detective Trails”. Note: Only one person is entitled to a price per app download. For groups we therefore recommend the print version (printed Detective-Trail map).


How to do a trail with large groups?

If you want to do the trail with large groups (only possible with a printed Detective-Trail map), we recommend forming small groups of approx. 5 people. Each group starts one after the other in small time intervals (approx. 5-10 min.).
