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 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.


On August 10, 1628, the impressive warship Vasa set sail for the first time. But just after a short while a sudden gust of wind caused her to list, water poured in through the lowest tier of open gun ports and she sank quickly. 333 years later, in 1961, she was salvaged, restored and is now on display at the Vasa Museum – the only museum of its kind in the world. If you are only to visit one museum in Sweden, this must be it. For more information, please visit the Vasa Museum web site

Close to the cache is also the Estonia Monument, in memory of the 850 people who died when the ferry Estonia, en route from Tallin to Stockholm, sank in September 1994.

Please note: The cache is not hidden in, on or under the stone wall.
Obs: Cachen är inte gömd i, under eller på stenmuren.
