### Geocache Description:

Easy cache in the northern part of the Danube-Island. The multi-cultural place offers a nice view to the Leopoldsberg. Nearest public transport: Bus 33B. The area can also be reached by bike or with inline-skates (but you have to leave the paved track in order to get to the cache). The distance between Stage 1 and the cache is about 1 km.

Leichter Cache auf der Donauinsel. Kinderwagentauglich. Kann mit Rad- oder Skate-Tour kombiniert werden.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

For my first attempt to hide a cache I've chosen something easy, but I think the area deserves a cache. As this is my "firstborn" I will not change the starting point.

STAGE 1:
N1 = 48° 16.068 and E1 = 16° 22.597.
Use the hint, as the sign is no longer visible due to the noise-barriers. The original question was to look for two numbers, separated by a comma (A,B).

STAGE 2:
N2 = N1 - (A+B)/2 = 48° 16.062 and E2 = E1 - B*67 = 16° 22.262.
Three large letters are indicating some surprises (but you don't have to take them as an order). Convert the letters to numbers (A=1, B=2, ... Z=26) in order to get the numbers C, D and D.
In summer you can buy something to drink near this place.

STAGE 3:
N3 = N2 + 17*D and E3 = E2 - C*25
You will find some bilingual information about the place here. Take the number of standing stones as F and the number of cherry-trees as G.

STAGE 4 = the Cache:
N4 = N3 + F/10 + 1 and E4 = E3 + A + B + D - G

The place is quite open, so I tried to hide the box especially well so it can't be seen accidentally. You may have to look very closely. The cache consists of a small round plastic-box. Please bring your own pen.
