Underground Treasure Hunt: In Search of the Treasure of the Golden Fleece
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 knights and princesses to crack the code. Are you daring enough to join him on his quest in the underground remains of Coudenberg Palace? If you succeed, no doubt Charles will reward you!
How does it take place?
Every child receives a backpack with the equipment to complete missions (treasure map, fancy dress, puzzle, flashlight…). Every mission gives an indication to find the password that will allow them to reach the treasure chest (where the famous collar of the golden fleece is). For certain missions, the help and presence of the adults is essential.
The children receive a little gift at the end of the game.

Paper scale model
Print, cut, fold and glue, and get a beautiful paper scale model!
The scale is of about 1/400 (that is 1 "model" cm = 4 "real" m). And why not reinvent the colours and the depiction of the outer walls by colouring them before the cut out. Parallel to their importance in the palace’s life, some buildings will be more complex to raise than others.
