Geocache Description:


Please find english version below.

Die Koordinaten liegen mitten auf der Königinnen-Insel im Kleinhesseloher See und haben nichts mit der Cache-Location zu tun.

Gesucht wird ein Ritter. Geboren wurde dieser Ritter in Hessen, genauer genommen in Weilburg an der Lahn. Hier in München hat er massgeblich an der Gestaltung des Stadtbilds mitgewirkt – aber nicht nur hier.
Deswegen wurden ihm auch mehrere Gedenkstätten gewidmet. Eine davon sollst du besuchen. Sie befindet sich auf einem Gelände, das keiner weiteren Erklärung bedarf.

Zum Heben des Cache musst du aber erst ein paar Zahlen ermitteln

Sein Sterbejahr sei ABCD
Jahr seines Ritterschlags sei ABEB

Den Cache findest du bei
N 48 09.E(B-A)(D+D+A)
E 011 35.(B-C)(A+D)B

The coordinates are on the Königinnen-Island amidst Kleinhesseloher See. They are not related to the actual cache location.

The quest is after a knight. He was born in the state of Hesse; to be precise, in Weilburg an der Lahn. In Munich, he has decisively worked on the design of the cityscape – and not only in Munich did he do so.

For that reason, a couple of memorials were dedicated to him. It is one of these memorial places that you want to visit. It is close to a well known site in Munich which does not require any further mentioning or explanation.

In order to log the cache, you need to find out a couple of dates:

The knights year of death: ABCD
The year of his accolade: ABEB

You will then find the cache here:
N 48 09.E(B-A)(D+D+A)
E 011 35.(B-C)(A+D)B
