Geocache Description:


English version below

Das Häuschen wurde 1820 erbaut und nach seinem Erbauer Heinrich Josef Foveaux benannt. Es dient bis zum heutigen Tag als Rast- und Ruheplatz am Ennert. Früher war sogar mal eine kleine Wirtschaft hier, es gibt auch Berichte von Bonner Studenten, die nach kräftiger Zecherei die leeren Bierfässer den Berg hinunter poltern ließen...

Leider ist der Ausblick in's Tal heute mit Bäumen zugewachsen, nur im Winter kann man den Posttower erahnen. Dafür führt nun der Rheinsteig vorbei und beschert dem Ort im Sommer teilweise reichlich Muggel - passt also ein wenig auf, wenn ihr den Cache sucht und wieder gut versteckt.

Das Foveaux-Häuschen liegt im Naturschutzgebiet Siebengebirge, verhaltet euch also entsprechend. Insbesondere müssen (und dürfen) die offiziellen Wege zum Finden dieses Caches zu keinem Zeitpunkt verlassen werden.

English

This house was built 1820 and is named after it's erector Heinrich Josef Foveaux. Up to today it's used as a resting area at the Ennert hill. In the past there was even a small inn here. There are also reports that students from Bonn tossed empty beer kegs downhill after generous libation up here...

Unfortunately the view into the valley is obscured by trees these days, only in winter you can catch a glimpse of the Posttower. But now the Rheinsteig hiking trail runs via this house, leading quite a few muggles here in summer. So please be careful when you search for the cache and rehide it properly.

The Foveaux house is within a proteced area, so please act accordingly. Especially you don't need (and are not allowed) to leave the official trails at any time to find this cache.
