Geocache Description:

Please no TBs or coins, the cache is twice disappeared!


This cache can be searched and found like any other traditional cache...

...but...

...it can be the starting point for an international cooperation as well. This cache is just one cache of a set of 30 caches named European IMC No.1 (IMC stands for International Multi Cache).

These caches are hidden in following (15) European countries:

Austria (A), Belgium (B), Denmark (DK), Finland (FIN), France (F), Germany (D), Great Britain (GB), Hungary (H), Ireland (IRL), Italy (I), Luxembourg (L), Netherlands (NL), Portugal (P), Spain (E) and Sweden (S).

In each country there is a primary cache like this one and a secondary cache that can only be found with hints distributed to all primary caches. The (15) primary caches are named: European IMC No.1 P-X-Yyy and the (15) secondary caches are named: European IMC No.1 S-X-Zzz where x is the country code given above and Yyy and Zzz can be any additional name.

The hints for the secondary caches are printed on lists of hints that are inside the primary caches. As the primary caches are scattered all over Europe it will either require a lot of travelling or - and that is the intention of the European IMC No.1 – international cooperation.

If you want to find the secondary cache as well, you should contact finders of other primary European IMC No.1 caches and exchange the hints. And please don't be a poor sport! Never publish the hints anywhere! Not in a log report or on any website. The hints shall only be exchanged / traded between geocachers that found the primary caches and want to search the secondary caches. The European IMC No.1 team wish you good luck!

   Secondary cache in this Country




You can park your car at the coordinates given above. Go in the direction of the castle and look for the tree “Geriichtslann” at N 49° 54.356 E 006° 04.684.
An inscription on the wall of the tower will tell you when this tree was planted. Transform this date into DDMMYYYY format, and assign this number to ABCDEFGH.
You will find the cache nearby:
at N 49° 54.(H-D+E,D,B-2*A) E 006° 04.(D-E,A,H-D)

Besides some goodies it contains a logbook. If you are interested in the hints for the other caches, just contact me.

Don’t forget to visit the castle itself – it’s really worth this visit!
At http://www.bourscheid.net/ (button: description) you will find everything you need to know about the opening schedule.
