(E) This is Austrtia's highest cache on a building. For the perfect view also a certain price has to be accepted: 6.90 Euro.


About the Tower

On 16th of April 1964, to the Vienna International Garden Festival, the tower has been opened. It has a total height of 252 meters and hence is Austria's highest building. 514 tons of reinforced concrete were built. Two terraces, a restaurant and a coffee shop invite to stay and offer a perfect view over Vienna.
The two eateries are mounted on rollers, so that the entire city gets pulled by within 26, 39 or 52 minutes.

Also the toilets are worth a visit. For they are the only ones in Vienna, where the entire city is at your feet during “your business”.

The diameter of the tower is 12 meters on the ground and gets smaller to 6 meters in 160 meters altitude.

Two elevators exposes the interior of the tower, thanks to their glass roof. It just needs 30 seconds to the top (or bottom) while going at 6.2 meters per second (about 22 km/h) up or down. Those who prefer to walk can do so on the 776 stairs. But only in case of fire. Because the stairs are only accessible during emergencies.

Until the year 2000, both terraces were exposed. To the turn of the century one of them has been completely glazed, the other one at least partially.

The cache

itself is in the open air, 150 meters above the ground. So at this point full GPS reception is ensured! However, since this is a constantly frequented tourist attraction, absolute mega-hyper-stealth-mode must be obtained! And therefore I advise you to read the hints. I have structured them, so that you can reveal a little bit more line by line.
For logging, please take the cache into the glazed part of the platform, there a sign up in the logbook, and then bring him back to the exact spot.
Another tip for the logbook: Roll the log together and put it first in the lid of film canister. Then place the can over it. Only this way the book fits into the can.

Also wir haben ihn nicht gefunden, obwohl alle Hinweise Sinn gemacht haben und wir uns auch ohne Scheu die Finger schmutzig gemacht haben :-( Anfängerpech?
