Paris – Marais District

A fascinating site to hold a team building exercise in the Paris Marais

Dr. Clue Paris Marais treasure hunt scavenger hunt for corporate team building

Event Description: A truly fascinating site for a corporate team building event, this 4e arrondissement neighborhood is one of the few remaining areas to retain its pre-Revolution architecture. Here you’ll find the grand Place Des Vosges, the Picasso Museum, Victor Hugo’s house and the National Archives, along with the Pletzl, home of Paris’ long-established Jewish community.

Location History: Before the 13th century, Paris’ Marais district was exactly what its French name implied: a “marsh” or “swamp”. By the early 17th century, however, Henri IV had turned the area into the city’s most fashionable residential district, with elegant mansions and subtle “pavillons”.

During your corporate team building treasure hunt…expect to see a hidden labyrinth; a statue of a knotted pistol; a poster of a bygone patisserie; an errant sundial; and a mural of Don Quixote. In the City of Light, perhaps no neighborhood has more treasures than the Marais.


Dr. Clue Gives You Three Ways to Customize Your Hunt Program

Not every corporate team building program is the same.  Depending on your group, your focus may be integrating new people into the team and breaking down personal boundaries and divisions.    Or you may have an existing department where teams could, with a little practice, cooperate and communicate more smoothly across teams and divisions.  Or you might simply have a group that thrives on the use of technology.    Let Dr. Clue customize your hunt program by selecting the content focus that best matches your group and your needs.   Read more about our 3 ways to customize your teambuilding event.
