The above difficulty and terrain rating was done with the program
from geocaching.com. To be internationally comparable I`m using
this result. (See the discussion in the forum also.) My personal
opinion is a rating of 2 stars for difficulty and 1 star for
Stage 1: The Starting Point
N1 = 48° 11.x1´ where x1 = 363
E1 = 016° 22.y1´ where y1 = 875
This stage will give you a first impression about the area. Count
the vases left and right of you. The result is A.
Stage 2: The VIP
N2 = 48° 11.x2´ where x2 = x1 + A * 8 + 4
E2 = 016° 22.y2´ where y2 = y1 + A * 2 + A / 2
A very famous person died here. Use the german format of this date
BC.DE.FGHI to calculate the next stage.
Stage 3: Nude in Public
N3 = 48° 11.x3´ where x3 = x2 + B + C + D + E - F + G + H +
E3 = 016° 22.y3´ where y3 = y2 + (B + D + E + F + G) * I
Count the more or less naked men and women who are standing left
and right at this place the whole year. The result is J.
Stage 4: The Calendar
N4 = 48° 11.x4´ where x4 = x3 + J * J * 3 + J * 3 + 2
E4 = 016° 22.y4´ where y4 = y3 - J * J * 2 - J * 2 - 2
Add Mardi Gras (=carnival) and the dog handler. The result will be
Stage 5: Another Calendar
N5 = 48° 11.x5´ where x5 = x4 - K + 6
E5 = 016° 22.y5´ where y5 = y4 - K * 7
Do the same what you did before now with the shepherd and the
dove-feeder. The result is L.
As long as this stage is not accessible use the following formula
instead: L = A - B
Now enter the Botanical Garden. The entrance is close to stage
Stage 6: The Cache
N6 = 48° 11.x6´ where x6 = x5 - A * J - K * L + G * I + 2 *
E6 = 016° 22.y6´ where y6 = y5 + 16 * K - L
