Under the give coordinates there's nothing to be found, only a lot of salty water.

In order to log this cache, you need to find at least one depiction of Saints Cosmas and Damian of any kind. It can be a mural, as in example picture, it can be also a statue or a memorial. It must, however, be placed outside, and you must put the exact coordinates together with at least one photo in your log.

Saint Cosmas and Damian are also known as the Holy Unmercenaries, because they had taken no money for their medical services. They're patroning many institutions who provide free of charge help to poor.


This is a virtual Safari-Cache. It isn't placed on any predefined location, but can be logged anywhere. The given coordinates are only an example

Da die Anzahl der OC-Caches in meiner Gegend ziemlich überschaubar ist, widme ich mich momentan lieber den Safari-Caches, allerdings meist andersrum: Ich finde Motive und suche die passenden Safaris dazu :-)

Das Motiv für den Safari-Cache ** Saints Cosmas and Damian ** habe ich hier gefunden:
Koords: N47° 52.321 E10° 36.723

Das Bild mit den beiden Heiligen befindet sich an der Aussenseite der Wallfahrtskirche St. Cosmas und Damian in Kaufbeuren

Cosmas und Damian? nie was von gehört... war auch nur zufällig mal über diese Safari gestolpert. Doch der Name blieb irgendwie hängen.
Letztens war ich bei meiner Oma zu Besuch, die mir eine Trauerkarte eines bekannten von ihr zeigte, der verstorben war. Die Trauerfeier war in der Kirche St. Cosmas und Damian in Köln Weiler. Nie was gehört vorher von der Kirche... Auf der Rückfahrt von Zons nach Hause änderte ich den Kurs und steuerte die Kirche an, die auch noch offen war und ich die so innen erkunden konnte. Sogar ein Bildnis der Heiligen war in der Kirche, allerdings in einer dunklen Nische, so dass ich leider mit Blitzlich ausleuchten und fotografieren musste, um überhaupt was zu erkennen.

Not a Find... just a Note ;)

Nelly 01 and me found a Church of Cosmas and Damian at Heroldstatt-Ennabeuren - however, there were no pictures on the outside that looked like these two men, we couldn't get inside, and since it's a protestant church, wouldn't expect there to be any depiction inside either.

A few days later we found that a local heritage association in a small village in Croatia was also named after Cosmas and Damian. Since it sounded plausible they might have named theirselves after their church patrons (there wasn't much in this village anyway...), we stopped at the church, but couldn't find anything for this Safari either.

Found 13 December 2016 Team Brummi found the geocache

The Münster Essen is dedicated to Saints Cosmas and Damian and stands at N 51 27.351 E 007 00.781 on the Burgplatz in the centre of the city of Essen, Germany.

Unfortunally there were a church service as we went there and for that we could not visite the church from inside. So we took some photos outside and hope thes are enough. Otherwise let us know and we do futher search.

Thanks for this saints safari

Found The geocache is in good or acceptable condition. 23 July 2016, 15:05 djti found the geocache

The Saints Cosmas and Damian are the city patrons of Essen. So, it is not surprising that you can find the statues of both of them in the city hall shopping centre. They have been made by the sculptor Heinrich Kröger in 1886-87 for the city hall of Essen.
