Discover Geneva’s secrets with the Mystery Tour

Geneva Tourism is launching an exciting new project that will have participants shrouded in mystery. Much like the Da Vinci Code, the ‘Geneva Mystery’ game guides participants through museums, galleries and various cultural attractions in Geneva’s Old Town, immersing participants in the history of Geneva with an entertaining and educational twist. The clues collected during the investigation will shed light on mysterious disappearances and reveal, depending on the choices made by the participants, the hidden secrets of the plot.

The Geneva Mystery unfolds around the mysterious disappearance of a famous history and archaeology teacher at the Geneva University one night in 1983. This curious event occurred while the city museum, the Gazette de Genève, announced the theft of a valuable painting. Strange coincidences or are they connected? Equipped with a book to guide them in their investigation, the visitor will use their sense of observation and deduction to carry out the investigation. The investigation will lead participants to historical and emblematic places, as Saint Peter’s Cathedral, the Maison Tavel or the International Museum of the Reformation. The must-see streets and squares will be key destinations during the course of the investigation and offer many hints useful for the resolution of the plot.

Geneva Mystery is part of the high added value products developed by the Geneva Tourism & Conventions Foundation. It allows participants to discover the city independently and in a playful fashion, alone or in groups, and throughout the year.

Available in French and English, the Geneva Mystery will be on sale from 17 September 2013 at the Genève Tourisme & Congrès Foundation. The price ranges from 21 to 49 francs depending on the number of participants (max 5 people). It includes three tickets to museums and a map of the "Vieille-Ville". The activity can last two to three hours, depending on the detective skills of the participants.
