Geocache Name:

Atomium – stealth challenge (Expo58) (GC1EG4C)

 

Difficulty/Terrain Rating:

2/1.5

Why this is the Geocache of the Week:

On December 22, we’ll be celebrating our love for geocaching around the world by releasing six new country souvenirs. One of those countries is Belgium. Stealth is one of the key skills needed for urban geocaching. This geocache, located at one of the most popular attractions in Brussels will put you to the test.

Country souvenirs are virtual pieces of art that are displayed on your Geocaching profile page when you find a geocache in certain locations. We revealed Croatia will also be among the six new country souvenirs on Tuesday.  Souvenirs that are currently available can be found here. You can view which ones you’ve already earned by checking out your Souvenirs on Geocaching.com.

What geocachers are saying:

“Thank you for showing this nice location and the great cache!” – Kirmesboxr

“Very nice to see this installation! Greetings from Norway! TFTC!” – ninad

“I always wanted to visit the Atomium in Bruxelles but never been there…after a short walk to the other side of the complex I can’t believe that scenic view. Definitely one of the European World Wonders. Thanks for hiding that special cache there – especially in regular size. Manx thanks and another blue flag for this monument. I will come back for sure.” – do.se_gotcha
