The scavenger hunt "Discovering Europe" in the European quarter of Strasbourg


Europe à la trace

"Discovering Europe" is a scavenger hunt through the European quarter in Strasbourg proposed by the CIIE and the Lieu d'Europe as starting point. Armed with a small booklet and a map of the quarter, the participants discover in an autonomous* manner "Europe in Strasbourg". In front of each institution, a riddle has to be solved or a question must be answered in order to find out a mystery word.

Thanks to the information provided in the booklet, the tour that takes between one and one and a half hours, allows to discover the buildings and to deepen one's knowledge about the European institutions.

The scavenger hunt is also a perfect opportunity to visit the permanent exhibition of the Lieu d'Europe. This exhibition tells a story, or rather several stories: the story of Europe of course but also the story of Strasbourg, closely linked to the past and the present of Europe.

*Please note that the scavenger hunt and the visit of the exhibition of the Lieu d'Europe are self-guided tours (the groups have thus to foresee one or several accompanying persons).
