Children birthday party



Together with your friends, we will venture on an exciting and top-secret journey of discovery through Graz. The famous treasure of the Styrian Panther, which has been lost for centuries, is waiting for you. But be careful! In search of the treasure, you will have to master tasks and solve riddles and, above all, remain unrecognized. Afterwards you can celebrate the new discoveries and of course also celebrate the birthday child, the leader of the successful expedition, with a picnic. At Ludovico in the midst of 3700 board and card games you can play, play, play together for another hour and because of all that the birthday party will surely be unforgettable!

From the meeting point at Ludovico’s, we go on a treasure hunt through the city. After solving the riddles and a picnic the hunt leads us back to Ludovico.

Our treasure hunt is ideal for children from 6 to 11 years, including at least one accompanying person who is responsible for the children during the 3 hours. We are happy to take up to 10 children on our trip. The costs for snack and cake are not included in the tour price and both can be brought by yourself. We will organize and buy snack and cake for the children upon request. Please note that we have a picnic and things like pretzels and cookies are ideal, chocolate mousse and ice cream are less suitable. The hour at the Ludothek is supervised by a member of the Ludovico team. We look forward to seeing you!
