Geocache Description:

Cachen ligger på det gamle Masnedø Fort, i et dejligt område med udsigt til Storstrømsbroen. Terrænet er rimeligt at komme til, men kun til fods.

Madsnedøfortet er bygget 1912-14. Ved 1.verdenskrigs udbrud var det
ikke færdigt, men man fik i hast opstillet 2 15cm kanoner fra panser-
skibet Valkyrien samt 6 12cm kanoner.
Ved Danmarks besættelse 9.april 1940 blev fortet udsat for verdens
første angreb med faldskærmstropper idet tyskerne nedkastede 300 mand.
Det kom dog ikke til kamp da fortet kun var bemandet med 2 danske
værnepligtige.
Fra 1957 blev fortet brugt til minedepot og midt i firserne blev det
lukket.
Fra 1997 er fortet blevet brugt til kunstudstillinger om sommeren.

From 1957 the fort was used for a depot of mines, and it closed in the middle 80´s. from 1997 it has been used for art exhibitions in the summer.
