Description    Deutsch  ·  English

Realm count Franz Ferdinand Khevenhueller, the owner of the county Frankenburg established a glasswork in the Wildnis of the Sprenzltal in 1716.1942 collapse the roof of the factory by snow pressure. After the 2. World War was not again established the factory.

Journey: Coming from the motorway, shortly after the by-pass of St.Georgen you bend to the left. head for direction Weißenkirchen/Frankenmarkt. After approx. 4.5km you come to:

3 ways to place your travelmobilely:

(Distances incl. return): The whole way (approx. 6km): At N 47°57 and E 13°25 is Wewißenkirchen in the Attergau. Here you find a infoboard over 'das glaeserne Tal' and a glass museum (attendance of this and parts of the village only in the context of a guidance - starting from 8 persons).
Variant 2(ca 4,5km): Follow the signposts/guides 'Das glaeserne Tal' . At N 47°56.965 and E 13°24.437 is not really a parking lot, but from here there is for instance approx. 500m down a slope to the beginning of the Topic(Cache)way.
Variant 3(ca. 3,5km): By the innkeeper in the Freudenthal (N 47°56.183/E 13°23.929). You have to go nearly the whole topic way retour,but after the find you have not all too far up to the inn .

 

 

The Search

The glass bridge (Die Glasbruecke): You enter the gate (N 47°56.820/E 13° 24,174) into the glass valley.You carefully cross spirit level swing the glass bridge, and notice the gaffersign at the side parts. How often? The number is G.

Molecular net: Your searching spirit discovers the molecule chain how many atomic nuclei see you? (amount of = H)

Beware: An eyeglass queue spys you critically! Certain carefully you look for the year when microscopes and binoculars ('Fernglaeser') were starting to manufactured. The 3 number of this year will be F.

You recover your (hopefully) escape from the danger on the spirit level swing (Libellenschaukel). Again full of power you discover on the nearby board 4 sorts of glass. Surprised you notice that the third have D letters.

You notice a beautiful-form-to-see .After you regard the nice view,you find at the equipment a six-digit number. The second digit of it is C.

Riesrutsche

Don't you still need another few Tymianblaetter ? Question in the pharmacy about it, you experiences a number - the crossfoot be A.
During winter this station is closed - see next station to get A
.

 

You nearly approach to the goal, with joy you use the Riesrutsche (a slide)! At the timber construction you notice some metal markings. One of it has 5 digits. Add up the 2+3 of it to E.
If the Pharmacy is closed , you can calculate A with the 1+5 digit of the same marking.

Going on a cool drink to the inn - or informing prior about the glass pocher? Directly behind the waterwheels.On the fixing of the wheel you find HBC and 2 thredigit numbers. One of the middle digits will be B (they are equal).

 

 

You will find the Cache now at North 47°5A.BCD and East 13°2E.FGH.

Found The geocache is in good or acceptable condition. 11 May 2019 Atlan63 found the geocache

Den Nachmittag haben wir für diesen Kurz-Multi genutzt, weil ja Regenwetter gemeldet war. Kaum waren wir unterwegs, fing es auch schon an zu regnen. Trotzdem eine schöne Runde, mein Dank geht an den Owner. Sogar Kunst gab es zu bestaunen.
An allen Stationen konnten die Hinweise gut gefunden werden und nach einer Stunde standen wir am Final. Den Aufenthalt in der Apotheke hatten wir zuvor genutzt, um etwas abzutrocknen und die Finalkoordonaten weitgehend zu berechnen.
Noch eine Bemerkung zu C: nicht auf dem Gerät sondern daneben.
Anmerkung 2: bis 31.05.19 sind Teile des Waldes wegen Forstarbeiten gesperrt. Also vorab informieren odet etst im Juni auf Tour gehen.
TB in.

Bei dem interessanten Spaziergang durch das gläserne Tal konnten wir alle Stationen finden. Am Ende sind wir im Gasthaus mit einem großen Stück Kuchen belohnt worden, doch die ermittelten Koordinaten haben sich als fehlerhaft herausgestellt. Der Cacher-Freund Bergpeserl hat sich daraufhin mit dem Owner telefonisch in Verbindung gesetzt, so dass wir dann die Dose nach kurzer Suche finden konnten. Danke fürs Verstecken!
