The path leads you directly to the ruin and from there the last few meters get a little bit more difficult.

Found The geocache is in good or acceptable condition. 07 August 2017, 14:45 Waldstreife found the geocache

Waren heute mit Michi unterwegs.
Nachdem wir den Spaziergang zur Burg gemacht hatten und die Örtlichkeit genossen, wollten wir unbedingt diesen Schatz finden.
Leider hat das Navi uns im Blätterwerk des Waldes einige Streiche gespielt und wir lagen zuerst 25m daneben.
Wollten schon wieder aufgeben und uns auf den Rückweg machen. "Da, schau doch mal da noch schnell nach!" - hieß es. Was soll ich sagen: Gefunden!
