Geocache Description:

(Français) Sous les pieds des touristes insouciants !
(English) Just below the feet of the unsuspecting tourists !

(Français) Le château de Haut Koenigsbourg est l'un des sites touristiques phares de l'Alsace. Tout enfant ou ex-enfant le trouvera fascinant. Il est bien décrit sur le Web, par exemple ici. Il y a d'autres attractions pas loin d'ici: la Volerie des Aigles, la Montagne des Singes, "Cigoland" (parc de cigognes), etc.

La cache est une boîte en plastique, environ 15x15x5cm. Lors de sa remise en place, faire attention à ce qu'elle ne tombe pas au fond...

(English) The castle of Haut Koenigsbourg is one of the premier tourist attractions in Alsace. Anyone who has ever read about medieval castles will be delighted to see how well "preserved" it is (of course, it's been extensively and expensively restored). It's well described on numerous Web sites, for example here. And there are other things to see and do close by: "La Volerie des Aigles" (eagle displays), "La Montagne des Singes" (ape park), "Cigoland" (storks - the emblematic bird of Alsace), etc.

The cache is a plastic box about 15x15x5cm. When putting it back in place, please take care that it doesn't fall too far!
