Experience Nyhavn and Copenhagen in a new and exciting way! The Heist in Nyhavn is a self-guided mystery city tour in Copenhagen for families, friends, and people of all ages. As you solve the mystery in your envelope, you will be guided around the beautiful area of Nyhavn in a new and exciting way. After purchasing your mystery tour, pick up your envelope at Maria's Kiosk and start the hunt for clues in Nyhavn whenever you like. The year is 1931, and a series of burglaries have kept the citizens of Nyhavn awake at night for years! What's even more disturbing is that the culprit (or culprits?) has never been caught! As young police investigators, it is now your duty to find out who committed the burglaries. The story about the robberies in Nyhavn is inspired by actual events. During the mystery you walk through the area of Nyhavn. Both the starting point and the finishing point of the mystery are located within this area. If you succeed in catching the criminal, you have solved a task that everyone, including the Copenhagen Police, thought was impossible. Are you ready to take on the responsibility? The search for the burglar (or burglars?) guarantees fun for the whole family and makes for a memorable and unique visit to Copenhagen's waterfront district. Good luck with your research. You will need it! Tip: If you are a bigger group, you can split up into teams and buy more mysteries to compete against each other; whoever solves the mystery first is the winner.
