How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Hiking boots not necessary, but a calculator would be useful!
The way from the car-park to the cache is approximately 2 km long.
The result of the traditional rating system is identical to my personal opinion
Stage 4 is also reachable with a mountain-bike!
Although the mathematical riddles seem quite complicate, I can
assure you that they are indeed simple. Just keep your head clear.
Don't let the optical similarity confuse you
Park your car at the position shown in the header.
The last part of the coordinates N1 and E1 will be used
in the further calculation.
Facing West you can see a sign showing the name of a street.
Count the letters and you will get b.
N2 = N1 + 4*b+4
E2 = E1 + b*b*(8-6)-744
You should stand in front of a small chapel called 'Klapferer Kapelle'.
Search for a four-digit-number. The crossfoot is called p.
N3 = N2 + 1000-(p*b*(8-6)+b*8+(99-86))
E3 = E2 - (p*(90-80)*(9-6)-p*(9-6)-42)
There should be a power pole nearby with two numbers on it.
Lets call the upper one d, the lower one q.
N4 = N3 + d+d+q-(9-8)
E4 = E3 - (q+q+d+p+2*b+p/2)
During your way to Stage 4 you pass 'Schloss Hornstein'.
Cubical building from the 15th century with 2 diagonal cone-roofs (Kegeldaecher).
Sorrily its not open for the public.
Reaching the destination area you see 'Schloss Drasing'.
Documentary first mentioned in the year 1284, probably built during
the time of the 'Karolinger' (Franconian Dynastie, named after
'Karl der Grosse') as a pre-castle of Moosburg
Standing in front of the manor-house you should see a 'small building'
with a bronze plate on it. On the plate you can find a number.
The crossfoot is g.
N5 = N4 - (g+4)
E5 = E4 - (g-b-(8-6))
The cache initially contains:
- Pen, note and logbook (please don't remove)
- other stuff
[Stage4]: [Because of the new gates, here is the roman number: MCMXCIV]
[Cache]: Ng gur ebbgf bs n qvntbany-tebjvat gerr
- Maybe theres enough space for a cache inside...*CRASH*
*looking carefully around*
*walking slowly away, becoming faster*
- RainmanHave a quick look and tell me how much flowers you see
- Reaching Castle Drasing
- The hunt is over soon...
- Walking through the forest
