Virtually travel through Europe with these five geocaches

A Virtual Cache is about discovering a location rather than a container. The requirements for logging a Virtual Cache vary—you may be required to answer a question about the location, take a picture, complete a task, etc… In any case, you must visit the coordinates before you can post your log.

If hopping on a plane to start a multi-country trip in Europe isn’t quite an option right now, experiencing Europe in a different way certainly is: virtually! They say a picture is worth a thousand words so the key is to get lost on the geocaching map and dive deep into geocache galleries. From there, just add the caches you’re most curious about to a List and you’ll be on your way to having your future adventure planned. Since we’re traveling virtually right now, here are five Virtual Caches to get you started on your future caching travels.

Dresden, Germany
Canaletto view for you
GC7B7R2, D 1.5/T 1.5

Italian artist Bernardo Bellotto painted this same view across the river Elbe to the magnificent buildings of Dresden’s old town in a world-famous painting in 1748. This Virtual Cache frames up that view.

Bratislava, Slovakia
GC890QH, D 1.5/ T 1

Located near the center of Bratislava at the convergence of three streets is a unique sculpture made of granite stone and steel by sculptor Oto Bachorík. Enjoy the view down the streets from this central spot.


Bruges, Belgium
Den Botanieken Hof
GC890RQ, D 1/ T 1.5

Koningin Astridpark (Queen Astrid park) is a lush botanical garden complete with an ornate gazebo, flower gardens, and a pond where swans can often be seen.

Stockholm, Schweden
GC7B86A, D 1.5/ T 1

Stortorget translates to the big or grand square and this public square happens to be Stockholm’s oldest. Ironically, it is actually one of the smallest old town squares in Europe.

Mallorca, Spain
Les veus de Raixa
GC7B93N, D 2/T 1.5, 95+ Favorite points

A beautiful Cultural Heritage Site consisting of a meticulously restored country estate and ornamental gardens. The gardens are so large that a reservoir was constructed in the mid 1700s to support the irrigation!
