Vagabund: The cache is gone! The shubbery where the cache was hidden had been cut down! So rest in piece, perhaps somewhere in one of the viennese waste deposits.

Geocache Description:

For this cache you have to visit 4 Stages until you will get the coordinates of the cache location. The stages are situated in the 1. district or near the border to the 1. district.

Start your tour at Stage 1:
N 48°12,122
E016°22,636
There you can find a building with a lot of emblems on the wall. The number of eagles on the sixth emblem from the left is A. The number of the crowns on the seventh emblem from the left is B.

Stage 2:
N 48°12,4A1
E016°22,79B
At this place you can find a monument. On its base you can find a name, written in golden letters. Transform the first and the last letter of the name into numbers. (A=1, B=2,...,Z=26) Sum up both numbers and let us call the result C.

Stage 3:
N Stage2N+5*C+63
E Stage2E-20*C-117
The column has four sides, each one to another direction. Go to the east side and take the number from the last row. We call it D.

Stage 4:
N 48°12,4(D-1)3
E016°21,9D3
At stage 4 you have to transform the latin number from the last row above the huge archway. The result is E. To get to the cache location you have to do the last calculation.

Stage 5:
N 48°1(E-13)
E016°2(E+647)

Be very attentive at the cache location, because it is a quite urban place.

THE CACHE HAD BEEN STOLEN ONCE, SO PLEASE TAKE CARE THAT NOBODY IS WATCHING YOU, WHILE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE CACHE.
