Start at the given coordinates, they are corresponding with the 44B - bus-stop at Andergasse/Franz-Glaser Gasse in Vienna's 17th district. The bus goes there from the S45-station 'Hernals' which can also be reached with the 43 tram. I advise you not to go there by car, unless you want to walk the whole way back... It neither is suitable for cyclists - I've tried once and never again. This is the first cache I've hidden, so I'm open for suggestions on how to do things better the next time. There are no real 'highlights' like an extraordinary landscape, though some places are very interesting in their own way. Special thanks to 4tyke who put his GPS-equipment at my disposal.The accuracy was quite bad, if you have better co-ordinates, mail me.
You will find a phone booth close to the bus-stop, it is not named, but it can be identified by a four-digit number. Take its crossfoot (AA).

At stage (1) you will find a microcache with the co-ordinates of stage 2 hidden in the surrounding roots. Since I had a weak GPS signal, use the picture I've taken as help. I don't care how you get to the next stage, personally, I prefer a more or less direct route.
Stage (2): You should have reached an 'official' hiking trail by now. Here you will find a stone with a four digit number on it. Again, take the crossfoot (BB).Use the co-ordinates of this stage
At stage 3 I ask you to look around. Tell me when (CC) some guy was in love with Tamara.Again, use the co-ordinates of this stage.
Stage 4: There should be a fallen tree which is rotting for at least 7 years, as far as I can remember. Forget it. There is another tree (still standing) not very far away which is marked by human influence on our woods. Not far from this tree (about five meters), there is an ideal place for hiding a microcache with the co-ordinates of the next stage...Again, I don't care how you'll manage to get there. If you hope you’ll find a (more or less direct) path to the next stage, I wish you good luck ; ).
Stage 5: There, again, should be a stone with a four digit number on it. Since things repeat themselves, do the same thing as you did with the last four-digit number, so that you get DD. As you might have remarqued, you always need the stage's co-ordinates to get the next one's.
Stage 6: Have you noticed that the last stone was numbered? Not far from here, there is another stone, having had the same ‘function’ as the last one. Find out it's number (EE) to get the final location.
There, again look at the picture I've taken and search the area.If you follow the path in southern direction, you'll reach civilised area after a short walk.
