Labyrinthus (Merville)

2

Last summer I got lost: officially. And it was the whole idea behind it. There is a massive labyrinth in the french alsace area, to find it is easy to find back is much harder. So we took our sun-umbrella, because you never really know, when you will find the next source of water, while you are lost. It is consisting of high grown huge corn and it is so big that you need hours to find your way through.

To make it more interesting every year has an own topic with mission and trivia, which can learn on your way out. Last year it was the world of dragons and knights. in the very middle of the Labyrinthus, which you reached only after numerous challenges, was a little theatre-play with cardboard-figures as the victorious treat. I enjoyed it very much and for infants it must be a great delight. If you are close to Strasbourg in the Alsace you really have to check it out.

    If this is the Merville Labyrinthe it's in the Midi-Pyrenées region in the SW of France, very near Toulouse. Alsace in in the NE of France. I'll have to get to the labyrinthe this summer and get some pics :)
