The Secrets of the Amsterdam Forest


Goats, pancakes, islands, a maze and some of the ‘big five’, they’re all part of this discovery game across Amsterdam’s greenest space: Het Amsterdamse Bos! The route is approximately 8km long, which is why we recommend cycling over walking as you solve our 11 riddles. While you crack the riddles, we’ll share forest stories and local recommendations.

Rules of the game:

  • Pre-game: Gather 1-5 fellow forest adventurers.
  • Playing the game: To start playing open the link, which you received upon purchase (check your spam/promotions folder), in your phone’s browser. Then, simply press the “Start” button to start solving the first riddle. As soon as you hit “Start”, the clock starts ticking.
  • Solving the riddles: Solve the 11 riddles by typing the answers in the text box and tap the tick button to submit your answer. Most answers are made up of one word only or a number – there are a few exceptions.
  • Hints: If you need a little help, ask for a hint. Hints will get you nearer to the location where you can find the answer to your riddle. Note there’s only one hint per riddle. Each hint you ask for will add 10mins ‘penalty time’ to your overall time.
  • Skipping riddles: In case you’d like to skip a riddle without solving it and want to receive the next one, press ‘Skip this riddle’. We recommend asking for a hint before skipping a riddle to make sure you are near the right spot to continue from. Skipping a riddle adds 20mins ‘penalty time’ to your overall time.
