Did you know that Birmingham has a longer canal system than Venice - even though there are no large bodies of water nearby? You can explore the narrowboat canal system in person on a scavenger hunt in Birmingham. There are also many other sights along your route. At the same time, you and your team will master exciting tasks and get to know England's second-largest metropolis from a new perspective.

Scavenger hunt in Birmingham between industrial history and cultural hotspot

Birmingham was one of the most important industrial centres in the world. Around the city, in the so-called Black Country of the West Midlands, industrialisation took its course from the 1750s onwards. With it, huge chimneys and factory buildings grew upwards, some of which still characterise the landscape. On your scavenger hunt in Birmingham, however, you will no longer encounter clouds of soot and black smoke. The city has long since changed and is now a centre of the service industry. This makes it all the more exciting to relive history in the Black Country Living Museum and immerse yourself in the history of the city.

The Birmingham scavenger hunt organised by myCityHunt is an equally exciting experience. Together with your team, you will walk through the city and use your smartphones to master tricky challenges that are distributed virtually throughout the city. Taking part is very easy. All you need is one ticket per person, which you use to log into our app with your smartphones at the starting point. Now appoint a team leader who will receive the GPS navigation and assign the other roles from photographer to art expert - then you're ready to go. You can see where the quests are located on the screen. The app's GPS navigation function will take you there.

Cricky puzzles on your scavenger hunt against a historical backdrop

The scavenger hunt routes are deliberately designed to take you past as many of the city's sights as possible. You will get to know Birmingham up close and discover many an insider tip, whether you are visiting or living here. One of the sights that is anything but secret is the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, which can be seen from afar. The imposing building is located in the western centre, very close to the 18th century Birmingham Cathedral. If you go further east, you will come to the modern city centre with its skyscrapers and prestigious office buildings. The Brindleyplace neighbourhood is also characterised by many new buildings. At the same time, you will also find the aforementioned canals and numerous trendy cafés and bars. If you want to take a break during your scavenger hunt in Birmingham, there are plenty of opportunities here. 

If you take a break, in a café, bar or restaurant, it's also worth discussing particularly tricky puzzles in peace and quiet - over a cup of tea, for example. You will not only achieve the ambitious goals of your team, but you will also be competing with all the other teams taking part in the Birmingham scavenger hunt. You receive points for the high score for every task you complete. You can see whether you are one of the champions immediately after the game in the app. There you will also find the pictures taken during the stations in your personal myCityHunt gallery.

Discover the modern aspects of Birmingham on a scavenger hunt: culture, cuisine & more

After a successful scavenger hunt in Birmingham, you're sure to have worked up an appetite. How good that the city has plenty of culinary delights to offer. However, genuine regional specialities are rare. The locals like to eat English classics such as fish and chips, but typical pub food such as burgers are also popular. If you want to make unusual culinary discoveries, a visit to a Pakistani or Jamaican restaurant is worthwhile. There are quite a few of them here, as immigrants from these countries have brought their cuisine with them, meaning that you can now enjoy first-class international specialities in Birmingham. There is also a lively gastronomic scene with innovative chefs.

The art scene in Birmingham is also innovative, as you can see for yourself during your scavenger hunt. Street art is particularly widespread and you will find numerous urban artworks along the streets. You will also find several art museums and galleries throughout the city - so, come to Birmingham and discover a vibrant metropolis at a scavenger hunt!
