Description    Deutsch  ·  English

The trail is 1 - 2 kilometers (depends on how you will do it ...) and is suitable for perambulators (except the last few meters).

  1. Bavaria
    Look out for two Roman numbers (denoting years) written on the base of the Bavaria at N48°07.838 / E011°32.761. Remember the number of "X"es in the years as A, the number of "L"s as B and the number of "C"s as C.
    Now head on in northern direction to N48°07.(A+B+C)08 / E011°32.(A+C)61. When passing by at an info board, take a look at the opening hours of the Bavaria. During the Oktoberfest, the Bavaria can be visited for D hours longer than on a regular day in the summer.

  2. Kgl. bayerische Kraftfahrtruppe (Royal Bavarian Motorist Team)
    How many soldiers of the team have been killed in World War I? Get the total of the digits of that number and remember as E.
    To get into the Messepark, you have to cross the street. If you feel uncomfortable crossing here, head on to a subway which is about 200 meters in the north.
    The center of the Messepark is around N48°07.869 / E011°32.567.

  3. Sculptures
    There are some sculptures in the Messepark: F stone sculptures, G wooden sculptures and H sculptures made out of brass. Here are some hints to avoid misunderstandings when counting the sculptures:
    • The fountain at N48°07.879 / E011°32.698 is no sculpture. Slides and other toys are no sculptures.
    • The brass sculptures have stone bases. Don't get confused.
    • There is more than one wooden sculpture.
    • Some time ago, the public part of the park was separated by a fence from the private part. On both sides of the fence you will find sculptures.

  4. Done!
    The GC is at N48°0(A+C).(E)(A+B+D)9 / E011°3(H).(F+G-2*A)(G)9. Due to the circumstances, the "box" is long and slim ... Please be careful when retrieving and opening the box.

2. Bavaria

Ich habe anscheinend nicht mal die richtigen Final-Koordinaten ermittelt. Wahrscheinlich habe ich in der Dämmerung das eine oder andere Kunstwerk übersehen.

Eine schön Runde mit beeindruckendem Auftakt ! Bei einbrechender Dunkelheit gestaltete sich die Skulpturensuche schwieriger als erwartet. Das Final war dannn schnell gefunden. Vielen Dank für den Cache !
lieben Gruß Lysistrata
