How Does It Work?

  • Sign up and pay for the Jordaan trail online. You will receive a text message with your unique link within 1 hour from completing the payment.
  • Start at Johnny Jordaanplein between 08:00-19:00 (daylight hours) on any day of the week, by opening the link, that you received upon purchase, in your browser on your phone. Simply press the Start button to begin playing.
  • Solve the 14 clues by typing the answers in the text box and hit the ‘I’ve got it!’ button to submit your answer.
  • Enjoy discovering the Jordaan area as each correct answer takes you to your next location – within walking distance.
  • The answers to some clues are hidden inside places and spaces we like. We don’t take any commission for bringing you there – we simply think they add something extra to your experience.
  • Keep in mind that most answers are made up of one word only or a number – there are a few exceptions. 
  • Ask for a hint, by clicking the ‘I need help’ button, if you need a little help solving a clue. HINTS will get you nearer to the location where you need to search for the answer to your clue.
  • Please note there’s only one HINT per clue. Each HINT you ask for will add 10mins ‘penalty time’ to your overall time.
  • In case you’d like to skip a clue without solving it and want to receive the next one, press the ‘Skip this clue’ button. We recommend asking for a HINT before you skip a clue to make sure you are near the right spot to continue from.
  • Skipping a clue adds 20mins ‘penalty time’ to your overall time.
