You’re invited to join Signal the Frog® as he travels to different countries to geocache like a local. No plane ticket required! Signal’s first stop: Germany. While he’s there, Signal will celebrate a local geocaching tradition called Dönerstag. Germans are in their 11th year doing this!
Dönerstag began in 2007 when German cachers met at kebab shops around the country all at the same time. The tradition caught on! These special events are held each year on a Thursday. In German, this makes the name “Dönerstag” a pun: The German word for Thursday is “Donnerstag.” Kebab translates to “Döner.” Last year, over 6000 players attended 233 Dönerstag events. The events were held all over Europe, from Germany and Austria to the United Kingdom and Switzerland.After his stop in Germany, Signal will travel to other countries with rich geocaching traditions to experience the game like a local. Stay tuned to find out where!
