Geocache Description:

A small forest cache close to the only moving water I have seen in Darmstadt (except rain and fountains). It is called 'The End of the Wald' because it is close to the forest limit before the autobahn, and is also the furthest I have explored in this direction when running :) The cache can be found by a nice 'river walk' despite being close to the industrial area.


The original cache was washed away in a flood. It has now been replaced. As you find the cache site, you will see that the area, the paths, have just been rebuilt after the flood. The cache is in the same original place. The new 'original' contents are:
  • bottle opener from stockholm
  • Jeep TB
  • UK 2p coin
  • Badge from Swansea Maritime Museum (from 1983!)
  • Ladybird softbug keyring

It can be done several ways. It is close to these parking coordinates: N49°53.279, E008°37.018
... where there is also a bus stop (busses 5513, 5506, 5515).

Or you can go the longer way (which I did) - a walk or cycle from 'Waldfriedhof' (strassenbahn linie 9). Cycling this way takes about 10 minutes along forest tracks, walking maybe 30 minutes. Many other routes are possible.

The cache is a small plastic box. The original contents were:

  • Logbook, pencil and pencil sharpener
  • a -,05 stamp
  • a set of the minor UK coins (1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p)
  • 2 x 'Winnie-the-Pooh' plasters
Final note: this cache is suitable for children - BUT - watch them close to the river! It is not normally deep, but is not easy to get out if you fall in! After rain it can rise very quickly and be deep and fast! Achtung!
Updated 14'5/05, following the storm (thanks Andy)
Update 11'5/2005: Aradilla and Carhu report that bus 'F' is also useful!
