Geocache Description:

A quiet walk along the river in Odense.  En fredelig gåtur langs Odense Å.

Munke Mose is the starting point for a traditional boat trip on Odense Å.  The trip is featured in a song from 1895 that was revived by crown prince Frederik in 1934, later to become a support song for the Danish national football team.  The cache introduces you to Munke Mose.

The coordinates in the cache description point to the north entrance to an exhibition building.  Near the entrance there is a tablet with an architecture award.  There is a year on that tablet.  Subtract 1665 from that year, yielding a three-digit number ABC.

About 60 m ENE of the building there is a bridge across the river.  The bridge rests on a number of concrete pillars in the river.  Count the pillars, getting a one-digit number D.

Now proceed to N 55º 23.ABC',  E 010º 22.7D1', which is about 500 m away. There is a micro-container there.

Munke Mose er udgangspunkt for en traditional sejltur på Odense Å.  Netop den sejltur omtales i en gammel sang fra 1895, som kronprins Frederik genoplivede i 1934.  Nu er sangen kendt af enhver dansk fodboldtilskuer.  Du lærer Munke Mose at kende gennem cachen.

Cachebeskrivelsens koordinater henviser til nordindgangen til en udstillingsbygning.  Nær indgangen er der en tavle som omtaler en hæderspris bygningen har fået.  Der står et årstal på den tavle.  Træk 1665 fra årstallet, hvilket giver et trecifret tal ABC.

Ca. 60 m ØNØ for bygningen er der en bro over åen.  Broen hviler på et antal betonbropiller som står i selve åen.  Tæl pillerne; det giver et etcifret tal D.

Henvend dig nu på N 55º 23.ABC',  E 010º 22.7D1', som er ca. 500 m væk.  Her kan du finde en mikrobeholder.
