Geocache Description:

[ENG:] Around 1900, count Gustav Fredrik Bonde had the castle at Teleborg built as a wedding gift to his wife, Anna Koskull. Because of count Bonde's fascination for classical castles, the castle looks a lot older than it actually is. In 1964, the castle and the grounds around it were bought by Växjö city. Today, the castle is used by the city council for representational purposes, and the nearby university also uses some parts of the castle. The park around the castle is well worth a closer look. It is also nice to make short hikes in the nearby forest.

The treasure is hidden in a white plastic box measuring 8 * 10 * 15 cm. Original contents: Logbook, pen, a bag of balloons, a French coin from 1949, a green and violet fluorite (crystal), a safety pin, an old token for busses in Malmö.

[SVE:] Greve Gustav Fredrik Bonde lät, kring år 1900, uppföra Teleborgs slott som bröllopspresent till sin hustru Anna Koskull. Beroende på Greve Bondes fascination för klassiska riddarborgar, ser detta slott mycket äldre ut än vad det egentligen är. 1964 köptes Teleborgs slott och marken omkring det av Växjö stad. Numera används slottet av Växjö kommun i representationssyften, och det närliggande universitetet använder även vissa delar av slottet. Parken runt slottet är väl värd en närmare titt. Det finns även en skog som är trevlig att göra korta vandringar i.

Skatten ligger i en vit plastburk med måtten 8 * 10 * 15 cm. Ursprungligt innehåll: loggbok, penna, en påse med ballonger, ett franskt mynt från 1949, en grön och violett fluorit (kristall), en säkerhetsnål, en gammal pollett från Malmö lokaltrafik.

Var snäll och lägg aldrig mat, godis eller liknande i ett gömme! Sådana saker lockar till sig djur.
