Visiting Europe in a day sounds impossible but on Saturday, May 14, you can visit 28 countries. Well… at least their embassies during the annual European Union Embassies’ Open House Day. Each participating embassy will open their doors to the public for free admission from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The Delegation of the European Union, which organizes the entire day, will also open its offices to the public. It will be hosting a special photo booth and food tastings as well as giving away prizes.
To encourage attendees to visit as many participating embassies as possible, there is a special scavenger hunt. Similar to The Amazing Race, visitors at each embassy will have three opportunities to complete tasks to earn points: GPS check-in, answering fun questions and photo challenges. Points accumulated can then be redeemed for various prizes and the top three point collectors will receive swag bags filled with gifts from the embassies. A complete list of participating embassies follows.
More information regarding all of the activities at the participating embassies and the scavenger hunt is available by visiting www.euopenhouse.org.
