Beschreibung    Deutsch  ·  English

Maybe due to the cement factory and the quarries there the city border line of Vienna makes a sudden sweep to the left and then back again, like a small appendix. The tour takes about 2 hours one way, and about 4 hours round trip. The path is mostly flat, but there are some steep descents and a lot of rocks and roots.

You should take a flashlight and/or a sheet of paper together with pencil with you, to ease the numbergetting at Stage 2.
At stage 3 you could visit Rodaun Rocks as a nice interlude (don't forget to study the logs for hints), the Bücherkübel and P13#0146 Wiener Hütte later at the Wiener Hütte.

Stage 1
N1 48° 7.911 E1 016° 15.321

Here you can see the main entrance to a school guarded by a saint woman.
Look at the first name of her, convert all vowels into numbers (A=1, B=2,...) and sum them up to get A

Stage 2
N2 = N1+(a*4-13)/1000
E2 = E1-(a*10-27)/1000

Here you should find a small white boundary stone.
It marks a corner of ones real estate and it has a 3-digit odd (ungerade) number on it, take it as B (Hint: Easier done with a flashlight to increase the contours or carboncopied with paper and pencil).

Stage 3
N3 = N2-(b-a*5+1)/1000
E3 = E2-(a*3+b-1)/1000

Take a seat, and catch your breath again. How many seating-accommodations are within a radius of 20 m (the big wooden one counts as one)?
Remember their number as C
Maybe make a small detour to Rodaun Rocks?

Stage 4
N4 = N3-1/1000
E4 = E3-((a+b)*c/2)/1000

The first undisturbed panoramic view to a large quarry (Steinbruch).
Is it in direction:

  • SE? Then D is 3
  • SW? Then D is 5
  • W? Then D is 7

Stage 5
N5 = N4+(a-c*2)/1000
E5 = E4-(a+b+c*2+d*3)/1000

The reception was rather bad here. When standing close to a bench on a clearing, go about 20 meter in direction 340°.
You were able to see a neat devotional shrine mounted to a tree, but it has gone to heaven. If you pray to the Godmother, who is asked for help?
Convert the last vowel into a number (A=1, B=2,...) and get E

Stage 6
N6 = N5-((c+d)*(c+d)*e)/1000
E6 = E5-(b*c-a*2+7)/1000

A resting place is guarded by a green dragon with a rotten breath ((c) PlanetEarth). Some identical letters are imprinted on its head.
How many of them (just the identical ones) can you see ? Take their number as F

Stage 7
N7 = N6-(b+e)/1000
E7 = E6-(b*4+a+c+d+e+f*2)/1000

A misbehaving hiker has carved a 4-letter male first name into this tree.
Convert the last letter into a number (A=1, B=2,...) and get G
Stay on the road leading west until you arrive at the

N 48° 7.677 E 016° 13.084

Now you can choose:
If you want a break at a nearby tavern with food and beverage, continue on route A.

Otherwise take route B.

Route A:

N 48° 7.658 E 016° 12.522
Have a break at the Wiener Hütte, accomodated also with a small playground.
Attention: Closed each Thursday and Friday !!

And maybe also a visit to the Bücherkübel ?
When leaving, don't forget to visit

Stage A1
NA1 = N7-(b+e)/1000
EA1 = E7-(b*a/2-204)/1000

A rather unexpected company is mentioned here on this sign, located in Kaltenleutgeben.
Even their phone number is written here.
Add the second and the third digit to get H
Take the 8th and the 9th digit as 2-digit number, and add the 7th digit, you get J

In addition you could visit P13#0146 Wiener Hütte on your way downhill.

Route B:
Stage B1

NB1 = N7-(b+2*c)/1000
NE1 = E7-(a*d+b*3)/1000

The once colorful stripes on the two trees on both sides of the small path are almost faded, so look out for a big tree with a horizontal two-color marking.
  • Is it blue/white? Then H is 2
  • Is it blue/yellow? Then H is 3
  • Is it red/white? Then H is 4
Walk on downhill.

Stage B2
NB2 = NB1-((c+h)*h)/1000
EB2 = EB1-(c*h*h)/1000

On a landmark you can see two encarved letters and some digits on opposite sides.
Just use the uppermost line, convert all (four) letters into numbers (A=1, B=2,...), and sum them up to get J
Walk on downhill.

Stage 8
N8 = N7-(a+b+g+j*2-9)/1000
E8 = E7-(b*3+j*2+G-f+23)/1000

As the asked dust measuring instrument has been removed, a red-white thing blocks the way, too.
How many white stripes are here?
And how many vertical circular tubes can be seen?
Take the sum as K

Stage 9
N9 = N8-(j-g+2)/1000
E9 = E8+(j-K+23)/1000

Turn west at the opposite side of the post.
An ancient stone ramp welcomes you, use it to advance to

Stage 10
N10 = N9-(h*k-c)/1000
E10 = E9-(h*k+e)/1000

Again the reception was quite bad. Walk about 20 meters in direction WSW (250°), and you find a large object.
As all registered ones, it has a number painted in red. Sum up all digits, and take the value as L.
Walk through the narrow pass at the right side and enter the

Cache area
Encounter a large rock formation where about 40 meters to the west there are two caves, now called left cave and right cave. Turn right and a broken sculpted stone construction lies on the ground. How many heads are missing ? Take their number as M.
But other things are still here. How many cornucopias can you see (Füllhörner) ? Take their number as N.

Calculate ((g + l)* m) + (k * n)
The Result is:

  • 44: Search at the left side of the left cave in the west
  • 47: Search at the left side of the narrow path facing eastwards
  • 51: Search at the left side of the lower right cave in the west
  • 78: Search at the right side of the left cave in the west
  • 86: Search at the right side of the narrow path facing eastwards
  • 92: Search at the right side of the lower right cave in the west

The cache is a deep-freeze box (size 23 x 13 x 5 cm ) and initially contained:

  • cachenote (please do not remove)
  • logbook (please do not remove)
  • pencil and sharpener (please do not remove)
  • ballpoint (please do not remove)
  • flubber
  • nail tattoos
  • small measure tape
  • plastic plant
If you are eager for more caches, you can continue with Föhrenberg, but it is not the shortest way back to your starting point.

V 1.03 (added reference to Bücherkübel, german description, A1/B1/B2/St10/Cache area rephrased)

Description adapted (V 1.15), thanks to the Heidels!

Even after so many years a listing can be improved .

Happy Hunting, Martin

Auch nach so vielen Jahren fallen noch Fehler auf, die man ausbessern kann .

Fröhliches Jagen, Martin

And once again forgotten to update the oc-cache in accordance with the gc-version.

Shame on me.

Eventually the version is now V 1.14, the same as on gc.com (there valid since 06/26/2014 Verlegen).

Happy Hunting, Martin


Und wieder 'mal vergessen, den oc-Cache gemeinsam mit der gc-Version synchron zu halten.

Schande über mich.

Aber endlich ist die Version V 1.14, ident mit der gc.com Beschreibung (dort schon seit 26.6.2014)

Fröhliches Jagen, Martin

Vielen Dank für die schöne Runde - war laufend unterwegs. Bei Stage 2 hab ich die Zahlen mehr erahnt als gesehen oder getastet, eventuell hab ich mich da etwas vertan, denn ab dem eingeritzten Namen waren meine errechneten Koordinaten immer etwas off - dank Ortskenntnis hab ich aber trotzdem in die Nähe des Finalplatzes gefunden (die roten Zahlen bzw. Parameter L waren mir aber nicht ersichtlich) und den Cache schließlich nach einiger Zeit entdeckt - für die "Föhrenberge" und den konsekutiven Anstieg war ich aber ehrlich gesagt heute zu faul TFTC!

Sehr schoener Cache der sich, wenn man auch die am Weg liegenden Caches mitnimmt, ganz schoen ziehen kann. Ich wollte eigentlich Route B nehmen hab dann aber wegen Zweifeln der dort ermittelten Variablen doch noch die grosse Runde angehaengt. Beim Cache dann noch laenger nach den (bizarren) Koepfen und Fuellhoernen gesucht. Den Cache selbst dann aber rasch gefunden.
Nur der Rueckweg hat sich mangels gutem Kartenmaterials als etwas muehsam erwiesen. Thanx, no trade.

Version an die gc-Version angepasst,

Thx to tomduck for the info.
