Cultural orienteering is an urban event opening the autumn season where exercise, outdoor activities and culture merge in a charming way. The event is suited for all age groups and open for everyone and free of charge.

You can walk, run, bike or dance from one control point to another - pick your own style!

In 2019 the events was organized for the 10th time. The event is part of the European Heritage Days.
