Intro

Foxtrail – the most exciting scavenger hunt in Switzerland shows Winterthur from an entirely new perspective. Have fun solving puzzles while going through the idyllic old town, former industrial districts – and maybe even secret underground passageways!

The fox has laid its trails. Secret messages, hidden clues and many tricky and perplexing challenges show you the way from one stop to the next. You are out on the trail by yourself and never know what’s waiting in store for you – even people familiar with the region are bound to discover new things.

Foxtrail “Alban” in Winterthur is especially exciting, both for families with children as well as for wily old foxes! A mysterious object gives you access to a lot of encoded messages. Those taking part in the trail, which runs through both the green and built-up parts of the town, will ask a duck for help, look at a wasps’ nest up close and even get musical! Weather permitting, you may just discover underground passageways that most people never even knew existed...

This foxtrail takes three to three-and-a-half hours to complete, so you’ll need a sturdy pair of shoes and a mobile phone per group in case you need to call the hotline. Prices vary depending on your age and the length of the trail.
