Geocache Description:


07-02-2008-Description Changed- Now With A Hint.
This short multi is around and close at the Hammering Man. Duration approximately 20 minutes, well for a small break

You see the Messe Tower/Trade Fair Tower- 257 m /842 ft height, 55 floors. Highest office tower in Europe from 1991 until May 1997. The building is founded on 64 pillars. The facade is red polished granite. In the front of the lobby is the nearly 25 meters tall mobile sculpture "Hammering Man" by Jonathan Borofsy, which represents an workers silhouette. 
Take care around the Hammering Man, it is security area by the building- it is controlled around the clock. Dont´t climb on the HM.

You´re  standing in the front of the entrance of the fairground. Look around and view the Hammering Man and the "green figure". Start with the Hammering Man.
The Hammering Man gives you answers:
Find A large number  3(A)07624          A=
How many times the hammer is on the highest point in 120 seconds
(start when it´s on the deepest point)     B=   (If he does NOT work B=C-2)
Now visit the friendly nacked green figure, he gives you the next answers.
Find his name- count the letters <10      C= 
Find D011-F3-16                                 D=           F= 

the final is

N 50° 06, (D*2)  F  B

E 08° 3 (D+F+B), F A C

Sometimes there are very bad gps-signals between the buildings, we have had EPE 3-4 m, the next time 25-30 m.
If it´s necessary, use the picture. If you see this object, then you are close at the goal or use the last help-the hint :-)).
