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.

Geocachers don't need a special reason to get together to eat, drink, and merrily talk about using billions of dollars worth of satellites to find tiny containers at the tops of trees, but throwing a souvenir into the mix makes such an event all the more delectable!
