Geocache Description:

Usually when geocaching, you get to see new and interesting places you probably would not have seen otherwise, and that is one of the great things about this hobby. But what if you are short of time when visiting a new town, and want to see the main tourist attractions and do some geocaching as well?

In Stockholm the On The Tourist Trail (OTTT) – series of caches could be the answer. These seven caches (plus one bonus mystery) are all hidden next to main tourist attractions, all on the Top-ten list of most visited places in town. The OTTT-caches was in the beginning all traditionals, most of them 0,4 l ”Lock and Lock”-boxes with enough room for small trading items, that should not be too hard to find. Over time some of them have changed to other sizes, due to circumstances at the hiding spots.

The caches are: OTTT #1 – City Hall, OTTT #2 – Changing of the Guard, OTTT #3 – Sightseeing, OTTT #4 – Museum of Modern Art, OTTT #5 – Vasa, OTTT #6 – Skansen, OTTT #7 – Fjällgatan and the bonus mysteryOTTT #8 – Bulls Eye.

Changing of the Guard

The changing of the guard at the Royal Palace takes place at the outer courtyard each day, during the summer months, at 12.15 (13.15 on Sundays). During the winter season a smaller cermony is held at the courtyard every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. From the cache the shortest way to the outer courtyard is to walk across the street and then take the stairs to the left. For more information, please visit: Högvakten (in English: The Royal Guards).

When searching for, and logging this cache, be extremely stealthy, the place is busy and there are always lots of mugglers around. After logging, please be sure to put the cache back exactly as found, thanks.
