On Saturday 6th July, the famous Paris Treasure Hunt will transform the capital into a vast playing field for this 8th edition. 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 13 participating city halls to solve the puzzle, which is still about love! Choose one of these districts as your starting point: 3rd, 4th, 6th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 15th, 17th, 19th, 20th or the 18th where you can also explore Saint-­Ouen’s flee market.

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...

The participants are invited to resume the thread of the love riddle of last year (no need to have participated in 2012 to pursue this adventure!). In 2012, following the tracks of a young Parisian, Erasme, they discovered that he once loved a woman… of whom he had forgotten everything! Is Erasme amnesiac? Is he crazy? In 2013, a mysterious character, the Oracle, is going to guide Erasme through a journey in his past, in his memory, towards this forgotten love…

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!
