A Cache In Plain Sight — Gdansk TB Hotel (GC2EC67) — Geocache of the Week

Geocache Name: Gdansk TB Hotel (GC2EC67) by Thathanka Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 1/1.5 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: It’s not often that a cache hidden in plain sight manages to surprise and delight its finders, but this one does. Tourists visiting Gdańsk, Poland who visit this cache find themselves standing in front of a secret that most locals don’t even know about. To the muggle (non-geocacher), the red metal cube next to the bicycle is merely functioning as a kickstand to a nice piece of “upcycled” art. The geocacher knows otherwise. It’s a lesson that not every geocache has to involve clever […]

Auburn Sea (GC3QGYZ) — Geocache of the Week

    Geocache Name: Auburn Sea by Nashuan with help from CaladorGCS Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 3.5/2.5 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: While geocaching is a hobby that’s captured the hearts of millions of people, not all geocaches are created equal. Not every cache is difficult to find. Not every cache is well-maintained. Not every cache is going to make your jaw drop and your eyes fall out when you see it. But this one does. “Auburn Sea” is a Puzzle Cache that melds adventure, history, and handiwork. After deciphering a tricky puzzle about the pirate Captain Kidd and his beloved treasure, the geocacher […]

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. Hidden somewhere nearby is the trick to unlocking the door, after which is you follow a set of narrow stone stairs that descend down to blackness. Depending on what kind of geocacher you are, it’s either eerie or exciting (or maybe a bit of […]

Kunsthof reloaded (GCNRZK) — Geocache of the Week

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. One wall is bright yellow and dotted with warped sheets of gold metal that play tricks with the sunlight. The other wall is bright blue and criss-crossed with metal pipes that funnel water to and fro. Every half hour (rain or shine) water drips down through and along the drains and gutters, and […]

By the light of the silvery moon (GC1BT32) — Geocache of the Week

Geocache Name: By the Light of the Silvery Moon (GC1BT32) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 2/2.5 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: This week, the final souvenir of the Geocaching Road Trip ’15 will become available: Put on Your Thinking Cap. To earn this souvenir, and potentially the Road Trip Hero souvenir, you’ll have to find a Mystery Cache. While many geocachers automatically associate Mystery Caches with puzzles, that’s not always the case. This geocache, for instance, takes you on a nighttime journey through the woods. You’ll have to follow reflective tacks and shapes through the woods until you make it […]
