Tricky clues, secret messages and solving tasks will keep you on the right track. The scavenger hunt begins in Müstair, at the gates of the monastery. Eleven posts guide you to Sta. Maria, from where you can easily return by post bus (only the start and end points are marked on the map). If you carefully read the tips for finding clues in the brochure "Einfach w(a)nderbar" (available at the guest information office) and correctly combine the clues on the boards, you will master the scavenger hunt with flying colours.

 

For groups

Suitable for families, friends, companies, clubs, schools. The scavenger hunt is best completed in small groups of up to 6 people. Several groups should start at staggered intervals of approx. 15 minutes.

 

For schools

We recommend the accompanying document for school classes from upper school onwards. There, the directions are supplemented with questions that can be answered with the help of the individual posts. We are happy to provide teachers with the documents and a map with the locations of the posts. If you are interested, please contact franziska.peter@biosfera.ch.
