Bored on the 4th of July?

My attention has been drawn to an event taking place in Paris on Saturday the 4th of July which may be of interest to residents of the city or even people just visiting. The event is a treasure hunt that promises to take you to a hidden and secret side of the city and see “the Paris of the Parisians”. Indeed, you should even get to meet and interact with some of them! Don’t worry if you have limited French as guides and enigmas are also available in English. The event is free and desgined to be a fun way to get to know the city better, but prizes will be awarded to the most successful teams.

A website has also been created giving more details of the event and also the opportunity to win a prize beforehand. A riddle will be placed on the site, and the first person to solve it and send the correct answer will win a night in a top hotel in Paris on the night before the event (Friday 3rd of July). Good luck!


This event has been organised by a very interesting agency called ‘Ma langue au chat’, specialists in treasure hunts and other similar events. Look out for a feature on them on Invisible Paris very soon!

A couple people I know in Paris participated in this event last year. They didn't win any prizes but they had a great time.

Maybe we can make a team? ... and ask one or two others to join?

C'est toujours agréable de "participer" même sans gagner, avoir l'impression de faire partie d'un groupe, comme tu dis faire des rencontres de personnes, partageant les même "valeurs", et puis se laisser guider tout en ayant des initiatives, cela fait penser aux "rallyes" organisés dans certaines circonstances. Aller à l'hôtel éventuellement dans sa propre ville ? C'est très romantique et souvent exploité dans des films (je pense notamment à "la Bûche" de Daniele Thompson, où Jean Pierre Darroussin et Sabine Azema se rencontrent dans des appart vides à vendre dont il a les clefs pour les faire visiter)
