Primaresburg (Mopi Castle Caches)
von Moitz Österreich > Südösterreich > West- und Südsteiermark
The place where the "Primaresburg" was (current guilty common meaning) is a right place for a family-cache. Between the rest of the walls you can see the "work" of a heavy machine (which removed the broken trees after the last heavy storm), but you still get a good impression about the old castle. The tour starts behind the century of Maria Lankowitz, follow the round path, but go to the top of the hill! Along the way you can find (at the right time) lots of strawberries!
The “Primaresburg” is one of the oldest castles in Styria. First documentation is from 1066. The rest of the wall you can see today, are from the rebuilding in the beginning of the 15th century be the knights of “Gradners”. The palace in Maria Lankowitz was build in the middle of the 15th century, maybe with the stones of the castle. The place where the ruin stands, might have been colonized before 1500bC. Archaeological excavations between 1984 and 1986 brought some interesting findings, but unfortunately not the announced open air museum. More information about the “Primaresburg” you can find in the Internet (e.g.: http://www.burgen-austria.com/Archiv.asp?Artikel=Primaresburg).

I parked at close to the church and decided to approach the cache from the northeast and the close the loop on my way back from the cache. The logging road was blocked by fallen trees at some places, but it was no problem to surpass them. Then I took a wrong route decision. I followed a small trail which ended somewhere and so I had to climb up the hill in a trackless manner for a few meters until I met again a logging road. The rest of the walk to the target area was straightforward.
I first enjoyed the very nice view and had a look at the remainings of the walls.Unlike the first finder I had some troubles to find the cache and searched around for quite some time. The hint was not helpful for me. I do not like hideouts of this type - I do hope that the location will not suffer from geocaching. In any case, there would have existed better hideouts in the area.
It was a very nice and relaxing walk which brought me a to a location I would not have visited without geocaching. Thank you for showing me this nice and interesting place. I would, however, have preferred a different type of hideout.

Tja... "weit weg" von Graz kann man auch etwas später noch einen FTF machen ;)
Da ich sowieso in der Gegend war gings mit der Mama im Zuge eines gemütlichen Spaziergangs zum Cache. Gute Koords + Hint machten die Suche einfach. (obwohl es natürlich per Definition kein 1* diff ist.
