Underground Treasure Hunt Audioguide & Interactive Plan Stone, Mortar, Chisel! Waouw! City Game Coudenberg

Underground treasure hunt (for children)

A treasure hunt for the whole familyActivité jeu de piste

Little Charles V needs your help! He has forgotten the code to open his treasure chest. And there’s something very special in that chest: his collar of the order of the Golden Fleece. Little Charles is looking for tough princes and princesses to crack the code. If you succeed, no doubt Charles will reward you!

How does it work?

Every child receives a backpack with the equipment to complete missions (treasure map, fancy dress, puzzle, flashlight...). Every mission gives a clue to find the password that will allow them to open the treasure chest (where the famous collar of the Golden Fleece is). The children receive a small gift at the end of the game.
