Beschreibung    Deutsch  ·  English

The foundation of the cathedral dates back to 12. century.
In the 11. century a nunnery was founded by St. Hemma. Out of this nunnery the cathedral, the roman crypta (build 1174) and the diocese arose. You will find more information at www.dom-zu-gurk.at or wikipedia.

I wasn't able to find out the opening hours of the cathedral, therefore you don't have to enter the church to solve the riddle. I highly recommend to visit the church, especially the crypta. You will find all the informations outside the church or in the near surrounding.

Look for the following informations:
  • in front of the cathedral, at the given coordinates, you will find a column (Mariensäule). Find the year this column was build by the parish (Pfarrgemeinde). Let the crossfoot of this number be "A".
  • left of the cathedral you will find a building with two old sundials. Look for the dates and calculate the difference. Let this value be "B"
  • on the right side and in front of the cathedral you will find the cemetery. Go across this cemetery to the back side of the cathedral. Here you will find a plate . This plate indicates the place where the nunnery was founded back in 1042. Above the inscription, still on the plate, you will see a number of rings, respectively circles. Count these rings/cirlces and let the number be "C"
  • close to the plate you will find an adjoining building with a dedicated function. What is the name of this building? You will find the name on a small sign-board. Please take the german name. Count the letters of the name of the building and let the number be "D"

The cache:
Intentionally the cache isn't hidden on the area of the cathedral. The hiding place isn't far away. You will have a beautiful sight to the cathedral and into the valley. You can go there by foot, it will take you 5-10 minutes, or go by vehicel (car, motorcycle, etc.). The route is adequate for strollers and wheelchairs, except for the last 3-5 meters.

The final coordinates:

N1 = N0 - B - (C * D)
E1 = E0 + A

The cache container is a small plastic box.
Please don't remove the pencil, the sharpener and the logbook.
Have fun and a nice trip to the valley of Gurk.
