Geocache Description:

This cache is located in the recreation area Wiener Prater. You will visit three stadiums dedicated to three different sports.

You can reach the cache by public transport, e.g. U1 exit Praterstern and proceed closer to the start location either by walking or taking tram line 21. The bus lines 80B, 83A, 84A also run close to cache. If You come by car, it is possible to park close to Praterstadion.

Most of the trail is paved, except the last 2 meters. Therefore, the the tour can be done by bike or with a baby buggy. The total length of the cache is less than 3 kilometers and there is no difference in height.

Stage 1: 1st Stadium
N1 = N 48° 12.678
E1 = E 16° 24.628
At this coordinate You will find the old entry to the first location. You will see a an inscription containing a number of words separated by dashes. Let A be the number of words. Translate all letters of the inspription to numbers, e.g. A=1, B=2,...Z=26, then sum up the numbers and denote this sum by B.

Stage 2: 2nd Stadium
N2 = N1 - A
E2 = E1 + 3*B - 2*A
At this location You find a small yellow plate containing digits and numbers. Translate all letters to digits, as You did in stage 1. Don’t care about the numbers on the plate. The sum of the letters (translated to numbers) is assigned to C.

Stage 3: 3rd Stadium
N3 = N2 –B + C
E3 = E2 - 11*A
This time You find a blue sign close to the location. This time, extract all numbers from the plate, sum it up, and call this sum D. Don’t care about the letters and signs on the plate.

Stage 4: Memorial Stone
N4= N3 – A*C – D - A
E4= E3 – B – (C/10)*(C/10)
There is an inscription on the memorial. Take the four digit number in the inscription and call it E.

Stage5: The Cache
N5 = N4 – (5*A + 2*B + C + D + E - 1)/10
E5 = E4 + B - C/2
