Escape room: “Schutzraum 13”

Escape rooms are now also popular in Germany and offer a really thrilling experience. Working as a team, you are locked in a room and have to solve puzzles in order to find your way out. Outopia Berlin offers an escape room that is based on Bethesda’s “Fallout” series of video games.
