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 are all traditionals, the stashes are 0,4 l ”Lock and Lock”-boxes with enough room for small trading items, and they should not be too hard to find.
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.
Update September 21, 2009: Construction work going on at the original site, meanwhile a temporary cache can be found at the updated coordinates. Note that this one is a micro, no room for trading items.
Stockholm is located on several islands between lake Mälaren and the sea, and one of the best ways to enjoy the view is from a boat. From Strömkajen several boat tours departure daily, choose “Stockholm Sightseeing” for tours around the town, or “Waxholmsbolaget” for trips further out in the Stockholm archipelago.
Lots of mugglers around - be careful while logging.
