Geocache Description:

At stage #1 you can visit the "Mineralienausstellung Turrach".There you can see minerals, fossils and crystals from all over the world. It is not necessary to visit this museum to solve the question of this stage.

There are about 2,5 km to walk up to the final cache place.

Park your car at N 46°54.827, E 13°52.592 and walk to the first stage:

N 46°54.867
E 13°52.607

E 13°52.(A*180+5)

At this stage you can find a carved flat piece of wood - count the letters on it, and this will give you result (B) and the number close to the letters is result (C) to find stage #3:

N 46°55.0(128-C)

N 46°55.(627/D)

N 46°55.(E*20+D)
E 13°52.(192*E)

You are standing in front of a 'thing', whose name you can see on a board. Count the letters of the name you see and the result is (F) which will help you to find the final cache position at:

N 46°55.[(B+C+E+F)*2]
E 13°53.(A+B+C+D+E+F-96)
