Treasure Hunt in Paris

Lace up your baskets and get ready to go!

The Mairie de Paris is sponsoring the Second Annual Chasse aux Tresors (Treasure Hunt) on Saturday, July 7. Open to Parisians and non-residents alike, the hunt is ideal for energetic adventurers with a sense of curiosity and esprit de corps.

Alone or in teams, on foot or on public transport, participants will go from site to site finding "clues" to the final treasure. Hunters will roam the winding streets and discover some of the lesser-known parts of Paris. Last year some 9,000 participants joined in the quest for "gold".

The gold, in this case, comes in the form of prizes offered by the sponsors of the event, including Michelin and Gallimard.

The quest begins at 10 am in front of the mairies of the 3e, 6e, 13e, 18e and 19e arrondissements and continues until 1 pm. Award time in front of each of the mairies is at 3:30 pm.

Participation is free and open to all. Sign up at or simply show up at one of the above mairies in advance of starting time.
