Geocache Description:

Razvaline gradu Ekenštajn si lahko ogledate vrh položnega grebena JV od Velenja v naselju Gorica, v neposredni bližini Šaleškega gradu.
Grad se je prvič omenjal že leta 1282, in sicer v posesti Koroške škofije Krka vse do 15. st. Do 17. st., ko so ga opustili in je začel propadati, je grad zamenjal več lastnikov. Danes se je od gradu Ekenštajn ohranila le razvalina z nekaj fragmentarno ohranjenimi zidovi, ki pričajo o njegovi srednjeveški zasnovi.
Parkiranje je priporocljivo na koordinatah N 46° 21.706 E 015° 07.559 od koder vas 15 minutni sprehod vodi mimo Šaleškega gradu do razvalin gradu Ekenštajn. Dane koordinate zaklada niso tocne (slab sprejem signala), zato si pomagajte z namigom.

Ruins Ekenstein are placed at the top of ridge in the SE part of Velenje near the Šalek castle.

Today, the ruins Ekenstein preserved only by a few fragmentary retaining walls.
