A really enjoyable mission set that not only takes you on an excellent route around Hengelo but gives you excellent local insight into the history and significance of the locations. It was a very comfortable walk and could be comfortably completed on a bike!
Had some minor problems with the passphrase clues being to vague such as "What does the V stand for at 'V van Victoria'": apparently Victory, bit was only discovered after much head scratching and guesswork. The main passphrase problem was at the beginning of mission 17-18, the answer is a date but the date format is not provided and it isn't written anywhere on the landmark to use as a reference. Even once we had confirmed the date 100% we had to do a lot of puzzling to figure out the correct format it is currently "3 April 1945" for anyone else who is stuck punching in different variants of the date.
The real problem of the missions is hopefully temporary as the last four portals of Misson 18-18 were in a construction site and totally inaccessible. I had to complete the missions by finding one side that wasn't directly under construction but also didn't encourage public access to get close enough to complete the missions. A slightly anticlimactic end. We completed the mission to on Friday 19/07/19 so be aware of contemplating this mission the end is currently in a construction site.
Over all a really well put together mission set, a lovely banner, excellent walk with only a few hiccups that slowed us down. Would highly recommend once the construction is completed.

De banner zit logisch in elkaar, wij hebben niet hoeven zoeken.
De route loopt door het centrum en het oude gedeelte van Hengelo, wat ik erg bijzonder vond was de route langs en door de oude fabrieken. Op een gegeven moment loop je dwars over een voormalig industrie terrein. Waar onder andere een bier brouwerij gevestigd is.
Ondanks dat ik Hengelo goed ken, werd ik verscheidene keren verrast. Nooit geweten dat er zoveel kunst in de stad was. Ook veel oude gebouwen waar ik het bestaan niet van wist. Daarnaast liepen wij door een park, waar historie, kunst. kinderplezier en 5 portals in bereik van mijn glas bier stonden. Al met al een geslaagde banner!

Great way to explore Hengelo city centre. As a resident it took me to less traversed streets and places and really showed my some new gems in my hometown.
A good thing about this banner was that the mission always ended at the starting point for the next mission, so it was easy to complete in one go.
Although the passphrases where a little bit too easy for my liking, it at least taught me something about the portals I regularly visit, but never really take time to further explore (and appreciate?).
At some point you'll probably have to cross the street to hack the portal 'Zicht op Hengelo' but while standing there you should take some time and enjoy the sight of the city from there (just pretend the busy traffic isn't there). It is worth the bother. The rest of the banner keeps je almost completely within the mostly traffic-free (just bikes) city centre so you can enjoy the tour in a relaxed manner.

Very nice banner. Route flows nicely. There are a few portals you might be tempted to hack on the way when you pass them by , which do show up later in a following mission (so if you're triggerhappy, keep some heatsinks at hand).

I finished it in one go , walking , and took just under four hours. This is with a lot of destroying, capturing and linking/fielding.If you just answer the questions and hack and keep moving, this should be very doable in 2 hours.
