The itinerary takes the teams to the historical centre of Sélestat. According to the myth, this city is also known as the origin of the Christmas tree tradition. Through its picturesque alleys, the city has preserved its medieval appearance with its half-timbered houses and fortifications. The city also houses the famous Humanist Library, founded in 1452, which contains 3,000 ancient books.
The team distribution of participants makes group cohesion easier and allows a fun discovery of the city; its history, its essential monuments and a number of anecdotes!
- Teams of 5 to 8 members explore the city autonomously, each with a road book and a map.
- To earn points, teams answer questions of observation to boost their interest and may call on people walking by to respond to questions whose responses are not necessarily evident.
- At the end of the game, after correcting and classifying the teams, an Alsatian gingerbread is given to each competitor and bottles of Alsatian wine are awarded to each member of the winning team.
- All teams do the same rally but each team’s itinerary is different. The animator ensures a telephone hotline in order to provide assistance to a team in difficulty.
