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 with the Lieu d'Europe as a starting point. Armed with a small booklet, a questionnaire and a map of the European quarter, the participants (divided into groups) 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.

This walking tour (that takes about one and a half hours) allows to discover the buildings and the surroundings of the European quarter and to deepen one's knowledge about the European institutions. Once back to the starting point at the Lieu d'Europe, a short explanation about the mystery word and about the European quarter is proposed to the participants.


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).
