Geocache Description:

First of all, to find the Cache you will need good mountain boots and a binocular! But for all who are afraid of the terrain difficulty: You have to hike less than 1 km.
I don´t suggest this cache for winter-caching. It might be very dangerous, because of snow or ice.

Start looking at the coordinates of P1 (shown in the header). Near this place you will find the hint SS!
The coordinates of P2 are:
P2N: P1N-SS+45
P2E: P1E-SS-31
Note: The hint SS is gone. Take SS=73.

These coordinates will lead you to a clearing in the forest. One of the trees surrounding the clearing will show you the next hint A.
The coordinates of P3 are:
P3N: P2N-19*A
P3E: P2E

If you find the correct tree, you can see the next hint B.
The coordinates of P4 are:
P4N: P3N+3*B-48
P4E: P3E+5*B-21

The root of a tree will show you the next hint C.
The coordinates of P5 are:
P5N: P4N+4*C-5
P5E: P4E-14*C-21

There you will find a place with a good view down to the valley. Search for a house with solar panels on its roof. The number of solar panels (two digit) is hint D.
Maybe you have problems finding the panels. Use the hint!
The coordinates of P6 are:
P6N: P5N-4*D+18
P6E: P5E+5*D-76

There you can find a stone with a number on it. The number is hint E.
The coordinates of the cache at P7 are:
P7N: P6N-4*E+93
P7E: P6E+3*E-78

The cache initially contains:

- a pen (please don´t remove!)
- a logbook (please don´t remove!)
- a cachenote in engl./german (please don´t remove!)
- short novel by Theodor Storm in german
- a smile button
