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).

      Malta National Day

    • Malta's National Day commemorates the day when this small Mediterranean country became independent in 1964.

      Malta was ruled by the famous Knights of Malta from 1530 to 1798. But, following the Napoleonic Wars, this small country was ruled by London (1802). It was not until 1964 that Malta became independent. At first, Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom was the head of state, and in 1974, Malta adopted the republican regime.
