Description    Deutsch  ·  English  ·  Français  ·  Italiano  ·  Nederlands

In Augsburg more than 100 fountains are splashing (in summer).
Beside the most famous splendour fountains in Maximilianstrasse and on the Rathausplatz (city hall square) there are also many less notable fountains and insignificant little fountains which this cache will show you.

The co-ordinates of each stage lead you in the nearness of one of these fountains. Exactly look at this fountain and find out which of the details, shown in the pictures below (see Bildtafel), belongs to the respective fountain.
Assign the figure of the accompanying picture to the letter (A ... J) of the respective stage to be able to calculate with it the co-ordinates of the subsequent stations and, finally, the Final.
If the result of your calculation for the postcomma places of a co-ordinate is only a one-digit or two-digit number so add two or one leading zero(es)!

This cache leads you on a walk, which ends in the nearness of the starting point. The walkabout is about 4 km long and can be made comfortably on foot or by bicycle. It will take about 1.5 to 2 hours.

In pedestrian areas you should absolutely dismount your bicycle if you do not want to be cashed up immediately!

It is hard to find parking places here. The best opportunity for parking is the park deck of the City-Galerie (N48° 21.880' E010° 54.500') in about 600 m distance from start and final. It is better, you come by bus and get out at the stop "Margareth" (bus lines 22 and 32) near the starting point.

This cache sometimes can not be made during the winter months. The box could then be inaccessible.
The cache can only be made during the day, as not all stations are accessible after 18:00!

Hint: If you keep open your eyes, you can on the way log also the Cache "Schönblick".

Unser erster Multicache!

Found The geocache is in good or acceptable condition. Recommended 12 April 2020, 12:00 Stbd found the geocache


Eigentlich sollte es eine kurze "Erholung an der frischen Luft"-Runde am Karfreitag werden.
Wenn man den Text nicht richtig liest kann es trotz richtig gefundener Zahlen dann doch etwas länger dauern Stirnrunzelnd

Egal. Heute, am zweiten Tag, dem Ostersonntag, waren wie zu erwarten kaum Menschen in der Stadt und wir konnten die Tour gemütlich und ungestört beenden.
Trotz Feiertag waren alle Innenhöfe erreichbar.

Danke für das Auslegen und Pflegen dieses Caches
Elias und Stbd

So, heute vor der Radlnacht hat es dann auch mit dem Final geklappt.
Ende Mai gab es ja noch ein technischen Probelm am Final.
Und jetzt passt der Cache ja richtig prima zur neuen Auszeichnung von Augsburg zum UNESCO Weltkulturerbe für „Das Augsburger Wassermanagement-System“.

Nochmal vielen Dank für die schöne Runde, die mir auch Brunnen aufzeigte, die ich noch nicht kannte oder nie beachtet hatte.
