“Liechtenstein’s First” (GCC2F4) brought geocaching to this 62 square mile European country in 2003.
When Heinz-Achmed placed the cache, he wrote on the cache page, “Still possible in Europe: a country without cache. Nice to be the first to place one in a country.”
It’s not possible any more. Liechtenstein’s First is now one of 115 gecoaches to dot the mountains and valleys in the landlocked country. Nearly 400 geocachers have logged smileys on the cache so far. It’s rated a 1.5 difficulty and 1.5 terrain. Cachers are able to drive within feet of the geocache location.
The winding roads lifts them about 1500 meters (4921 feet) into the Alps. More than 100 pictures on the cache page capture the stunning views and sites along the way. Some geocachers use the famous cache to mark their own personal achievements.
One geocacher logged, “Decided to pick a special cache for our 3000th find, and the first in Liechtenstein certainly fit the bill!!”
