Größter Cachebehälter Österreichs? (GC35Q1C) — Geocache of the Week

    Geocache Name: Größter Cachebehälter Österreichs? by artig&hold Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 1/2 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: “Größter Cachebehälter Österreichs” means Biggest Cache Container in Austria…which this one may very well be, depending on how you define ‘cache container’.  Geocachers who arrive at GZ find themselves standing in front of wood-gated door in an old brick wall.

Geocache Name: Kunsthof reloaded (GCNRZK) by willimax Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 1.5/1 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: This geocache is hidden within the Kunsthof Arcade: a small, quiet group of connected courtyards in the middle of Dresden, Germany. The facades of the buildings, which were designed by local artists, might stop you in your tracks.
