Paris Treasure Hunt
On Saturday 7th July, the now famous Paris Treasure Hunt will transform the capital into a vast playing field for the 7th year running. By yourself, with family, part of a team, with friends or neighbours, with strangers, an amateur or a super sleuth, join the fun and participate, for free, in this grand open-air adventure.
Meet between 10am and 1pm in front of one of the 12 participating “mairies” to solve the puzzle which, this year, is all about love! Choose one of these arrondissements as your starting point: 3eme, 6eme, 9eme, 10eme, 11eme, 12eme, 13eme, 15eme, 17eme, 19eme, 20eme or the 18eme where you can also explore Saint-Ouen.
Paris, the city of love, is viewed by millions the world over as the capital of romance…. It is in this hugely symbolic city that the participants will set off on a journey of discovery through unexpected, unknown and often surprising locations: hidden gardens, narrow passageways, underground caverns and other secret Parisian nooks and crannies, guided by the letters exchanged by two mysterious lovers. From message to message, the players will follow the thread of their rendez-vous, their secret hiding places, deciphering the code behind each word play exchanged by the passionate love birds…. In order to solve the enigma, you must find the romantic couple’s final meeting point!
The Paris Treasure Hunt is open to everyone: the most daring can choose an expert route whilst others can enjoy the accessible routes suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs; as for English speakers, they can solve the puzzles set out in English.
At the end of this fun, convivial adventure, all the participants will be united for a festive distribution of prizes, a well-earned snack and live music. Party atmosphere guaranteed!
