Tracking Game Heart of Paris


The 1st arrondissement, with its 329 listed sites and monuments, its 14 museums, including
the Grand Louvre, its luxury shops, is still in the heart of France and a dive into paris roots.


From the 3rd to the 10th century, the destruction and massacres of the barbarian invasions succeeded one another; but each time the city rose again by affirming its role of spiritual capital, then administrative fixed in 508 by Clovis.

The symbols of this primacy are embodied in the 7th century Christian basilica built on the present site of Saint-Germain-l’Auxerrois.

King Philippe Auguste developed the area of the district on the right bank with the Champeaux, a territory that he urbanized and equipped with 2 primitive halls; he also built the first rampart of Paris on nearly 3 km, which protected the city along a north-east arc, from the Louvre to the rue Saint-Denis; finally, he built the Old Louvre, the embryo of the current Palace.

The Louvre, which was once the largest royal palace in the world and is now the largest museum in the world, has developed since the 12th century through the Renaissance and especially during the reign of  sun King Louis XIV.

The demographic push, accelerated in the 12th century, made Saint-Germain-l’Auxerrois explode into four parishes: Saint-Eustache, Saint-Leu-St-Gilles, Saint-Germain-l’Auxerrois, Saint-Roch. The Renaissance was illustrated above all by the Palais des Tuileries which resisted the Revolution, but was burned by the Commune and cut down by the Parliament of the third Republic.

The great period of architecture was the classical period: the Place Vendôme has kept its harmony in spite of many misfortunes; the Place des Tuileries has known many misfortunes; the Place des Victoires, mutilated by the piercing of the rue Etienne-Marcel (Haussmann); Palais-Royal begun by Richelieu, which became the fief of the Orléans after a brief royal residence of Louis XIV; the place Dauphine where the Tréteaux de Tabarin were established.

The 19th century removed a large part of the old districts: to meet the needs of urbanism and modern communications, it was necessary to create large axes and wide spaces: the rue de Rivoli, wanted by Napoleon (a large East-West road), which took half a century to complete; Haussmann’s work (the piercing of the Avenue de l’Opéra, the  suppression of the island which separates the Louvre from the Tuileries).
The Forum des Halles replaced in 1975 to 1980 the gigantic metal complex of Baltard (circa 1850), which housed the “belly of Paris”, transported to Rungis; this forum, partly underground, with the discussed architecture, wanted to be the cultural and tourist link between the Grand Louvre and the Beaubourg Center.

The Tuileries garden, created by Catherine de Medici on 48 hectares (reduced to 28 by Le Nôtre), is the largest green space of the capital after Bercy.

  • A tracking game is a course full of enigmas you need to solve looking for clues to head to the next step. The final goal is secondary, spending quality time , have fun and learn is the what matters.
  • A treasure hunt has the same pattern but the main focus is to find a treasure.
  • A rally is all about velocity and getting to the next stage in the shortest period of time
  • An escape game is defined by time and space
