Geocache Description:

Die Weihnachtszeit naht und damit auch die Leckereien, die es nur zu dieser Zeit gibt. Dazu zählt natürlich auch das Hutzelbrot, das traditionell erst am Weihnachtsabend angeschnitten werden darf und mit Butter bestrichen gegessen wird.
Der Cache handelt allerdings vom Erfinder des Hutzelbrotes, dem Stuttgarter Hutzelmännle, dem Eduard Mörike ein ganzes Märchen gewidmet hat.


Dieses Hutzelmännle sitzt heute an einem recht versteckten Ort in der Stuttgarter City ( in max. 100 m Entfernung von den angegebenen Koordinaten ).
Findet das Männle und verwendet die Beschreibung an der Wand zur Ermittlung der Finalkoordinaten.
Wandelt die ersten Buchstaben jeder Zeile (Z1, Z2, ... ) in den Zahlenwert im Alphabet um ( A=1, B=2, ... )

Der Final befindet sich bei:

N 48° 46.[Z1+1][Z2-4][Z3-11]
E 009° 10.[Z4+1][Z5+1][Z6+4]

English description:

Christmas is coming, with all that delicious sweets and cookies you can only get at this special time. In Swabian this also includes the "Hutzelbrot", traditionally eaten, spread with butter. It is made of dried fruits, nuts, sugar, flour and lots of spices.
However, the cache itself is about the inventor of the "Hutzelbrot": The Stuttgardian Hutzelmännle
Eduard Mörike, a famous novelist wrote the fairy tale in 1853.

A monument of this little goblin is situated in a quite hidden place in the centre of Stuttgart. ( max. 100 metres from the specified coordinates )

Find the Hutzelmännle and use the inscription on the wall below, to calculate the final coordinates. Convert the first letter of each line ( Z1, Z2, ... ) into the numerical value in the alphabet ( A=1, B=2, ... )

The final is located at:

N 48° 46.[Z1+1][Z2-4][Z3-11]
E 009° 10.[Z4+1][Z5+1][Z6+4]
