English Description <br>
This cache can be done by bike, motorbike, car and as well on foot.
I would recommend doing it by bike. <br>
If you do it on foot and follow the signposts, the distance from
Stage 1 to Stage 5 will be about 7,5 kilometers. <br>
With all other means of transport the route will be a bit longer
(about 0,5 to 1,0 kilometer). You can start the cache from any
Stage you like, if you should decide to chose the given order of
stages you will be steadily moving from the starting point into the
direction north-east. <br>
You could also start at the castle Söding and follow the signposts
with the inscription "Schlosswanderweg". <br>
The most castles are private property and you should consider this
fact before you enter it (the owners could disapprove!). Therefore
I'd like to mention that all riddles can be solved without entering
the properties. The only exception is castle Sonnegg, but you will
not have to face any problems there.

Castle Tausendlust (Hitzendorf)<br>
In front of the castle (not the gate) you will find a certain
number of statues. Note the number of them --&gt; A</p>
47°01.754' N<br>
15°17.413' E<br>
Castle Altenberg<br>
Standing at the parking space you can see a red signpost, which is
hanging on a tree. How many words do you count on it? --&gt; B</p>
47°02.156' N<br>
15°17.027' E<br>
Castle Schittling<br>
In front of the castle you will find something that is
approximately 30 meters long and approx. 5 meters wide, it is also
very flat. What is it? The number of letters --&gt; C</p>
47°02.100' N<br>
15°16,575' E<br>
Castle Reiteregg<br>
I do not know whether the owners like to have people close to the
castle or not, therefore you can solve the riddle when you are
standing at the main street. You will see two symmetric fronts that
are also cascaded. Count the horizontal parts/steps of ONE front.
The number is --&gt; D</p>
<p><b>Stage 5:</b><br>
47°03.525 E<br>
15°16.184 E<br>
Castle Sonnegg<br>
This castle houses a company, which manufactures something
special. Firstly find out the name of the company. Number of
letters --&gt; E</p>
<p>Secondly find out what the company produces. Count the number of
letters of the ENGLISH word for it (search for the signpost and
count the letters of the word in singular) --&gt; F</p>
Moreover you will need the number of balconies --&gt; G<br>
and furthermore the number of clocks attached to the castle --&gt;
The cache is hidden in a forest (not far away from the border) at
the foot of a tree at the following coordinates:<br>
47° 0G,CZY' N<br>
15° HF,0XZ' E<br>

It's a pity that the cache will not be replaced. In any case, please do not forget to archive the cache on oc.de as well.

Bitte nicht auf das Archivieren des Caches auf oc.de vergessen.
