If you want to try to make your way along the stages as short as possible, you should consider using a city map. The total walking distance is about 6.5 km (it took me 2 hours to walk the tour, no museum stops included); the tour is more or less completely suitable for strollers - there is just few steps.

You will have to solve all of the questions at the following stages. The order in which you solve it, does **not** matter for the final solution.

Leave your car or bike at the above coordinates ("Urfahraner Jahrmarktgelände") or take the trams #1 or #3 to the "Rudolphstrasse" stop.

The new town hall is just across the street from stage 1, at the coordinates

N 48°18.557'

E 014°17.010'.

The City of Linz service center at the corner of the town hall building (open Mo-Fri from 7am to 6pm) should be able to provide you with additional information (and a map of the city centre).

After having found out all the solutions, calculate the final coordinates of the cache as follows:

**N 48° AC.EGI'
E 014° BD.FHJ'**

The cache container is a black film container.

It originally contained:

- log book (please do not remove)

- pencil (please do not remove)

Please rehide the cache container exactly where you found it!

If you are tired from your tour, stop by at the picturesque "Biergartl" at

N 48°18.512'

E 014°16.913' (open only during the warm season)

or the "Fischerhäusl" at

N 48°18.525'

E 014°16.952';

both places are just a few steps away from your car/bike and the tram station.

Happy hunting,
