TABBY hunts are treasure hunts previously only held within Vienna, Austria where anyone fast enough has a chance to find and own an original TABBY piece to take home.
TABBY hunts are there to make life more interesting and like everything else, an experiment to see what happens. They give you a chance to do something new, reward those who do and gives anybody the possibility to find and own an original painting with a story behind how they got it. The challenges are usually different, but they consist of hidden treasure that can be found and claimed by anybody willing to give it a try. So get outside, get to know the city and get the treasure, there are no losers.
