Beschreibung    English

Under the give coordinates there's nothing to be found, only a lot of salty water.

In order to log this cache, you need to find at least one depiction of Saints Cosmas and Damian of any kind. It can be a mural, as in example picture, it can be also a statue or a memorial. It must, however, be placed outside, and you must put the exact coordinates together with at least one photo in your log.

Saint Cosmas and Damian are also known as the Holy Unmercenaries, because they had taken no money for their medical services. They're patroning many institutions who provide free of charge help to poor.


This is a virtual Safari-Cache. It isn't placed on any predefined location, but can be logged anywhere. The given coordinates are only an example

Not a Find... just a Note ;)

Nelly 01 and me found a Church of Cosmas and Damian at Heroldstatt-Ennabeuren - however, there were no pictures on the outside that looked like these two men, we couldn't get inside, and since it's a protestant church, wouldn't expect there to be any depiction inside either.

A few days later we found that a local heritage association in a small village in Croatia was also named after Cosmas and Damian. Since it sounded plausible they might have named theirselves after their church patrons (there wasn't much in this village anyway...), we stopped at the church, but couldn't find anything for this Safari either.

The Münster Essen is dedicated to Saints Cosmas and Damian and stands at N 51 27.351 E 007 00.781 on the Burgplatz in the centre of the city of Essen, Germany.

Unfortunally there were a church service as we went there and for that we could not visite the church from inside. So we took some photos outside and hope thes are enough. Otherwise let us know and we do futher search.

Thanks for this saints safari

The Saints Cosmas and Damian are the city patrons of Essen. So, it is not surprising that you can find the statues of both of them in the city hall shopping centre. They have been made by the sculptor Heinrich Kröger in 1886-87 for the city hall of Essen.

Das hat jetzt aber gedauert, bis ich endlich in unserer Gegend eine Cosmas&Damian Kirche gefunden habe und ich dann schließlich auch dort war.

Die Kirche befindet sich in Neunkirchen im Odenwald:

N 49° 43.980' E 008° 46.440'

It lasted very long until I found a Cosmas&Damian church and even longer until I eventually drove to it. I found the church in Neunkirchen in the Odenwald.

Thank you for this SC!

Cool FTF Cool (after 74 days)
