Skurrilum St. Pauli | 1 room – 1,000 puzzles

An exciting leisure activity especially when the weather isn’t so great: SKURRILUM ST. PAULI, located directly on Hamburg’s infamous Reeperbahn!

Inspired by the global boom of escape games, the makers of Hamburg’s Schmidt Theater have come up with something completely new. In five intricately prepared rooms, visitors enter a strange world full of puzzles and adventure. The real-life escape rooms expand on the original concept of working together to solve a puzzle by adding a theatrical dimension with detailed sets, light and sound effects, and video interactions. The ultimate goal not only is to escape from the room but also to live an exciting story together. The players enter a miniature universe in which everything is real and together follow a predetermined plotline to reach the climax of the game. The focus is less on solving the sequence of puzzles and more on the entertainment factor.
