This cache will lead you on a walk through the town to some still existing tracks of emperor Maximilian I in Augsburg.
In the city it is very difficult to find parking places. Best of all, you come with public means of transportation to the starting point which is near the stop "Moritzplatz" (tram lines 1 or 2, bus routes 22 or 32).

Maximilian I (*1459 +1519), called "the last knight", from 1477 was duke of Burgundy, from 1486 Roman-German king and from 1508 emperor of the holy Roman empire.
He often stayed in Augsburg. Many times in company of his "court jester", loyal confidant and consultant Kunz von der Rosen, also called "amusing consultant of the emperor".
From 1501 Maximilian even owned a house here, near the "Heilig Kreuzer Thor". Unfortunately in the following picture this house is covered by this gate tower.

Heilig Kreuzer Thor (seen from the Ludwigstraße)


To get into the town again after his hunting expeditions outside of the town walls also at night, the "Alte Einlass" (old entrance) was established specially for the emperor in the town fortification, roughly between the today's municipal theatre and the court house of the district court of Augsburg.

Der Alte Einlass (1840)

Its technology which functioned supposedly automatically was admired. Its ingenious mechanism was marveled at in whole Europe as a engineering marvel.
However, in reality guardians, so-called "Einlässer", in the upper floor of the building operated the mechanisms of the gate machine and the drawbridge manually. Three chambers which were opened successively were inserted.

The last relicts of the "Alter Einlass" were removed in the course of the demolition of the town fortification in 1867.

The narrow relationship of Maximilian to Augsburg is decisively caused to his financial dependence on the rich businessmen of the Fugger and Welser.

Because of his predilection for Augsburg (his 17 stays lasted a total of two years and 211 days) king Franz I von Frankreich called him derogatively the "mayor of Augsburg".

Today beside the name of "Maximilianstrasse" only a few inscriptions remind of emperor Maximilian.

The so-called imperial mile of Augsburg, the "Maximilianstrasse" originated only in 1809 after the demolition of the "Siegelhaus" and was named originally after the Bavarian king Maximilian I at that time. Only in 1957 emperor Maximilian I was explained to its name patron.

However, the Maximilianmuseum deals generally nothing with the emperor. It was opened in 1854 and named after the Bavarian king Maximilian II.

On your walk you will see several memorial tablets. The translations of the inscriptions can be found in the appendix.








Stage 1: N48°22.088 E010°53.890                    A =

Question: Which annual number (=B) carries this farewell?


Stage 3: N48°22.(B-1329) E010°53.(B-967)           C =
How far is it (air line) from this point to the front door of the court house (Landgericht Augsburg) Am Alten Einlass?
approx. 35 m ---> C = 35
approx. 75 m ---> C = 75
approx. 105 m ---> C = 105


Stage 4: N48°22.(193+C) E010°53.(487+C)            D =
                                                   E =

Near this place you can find several inscriptions. How many years (D) did this house belong to the emperor?
How many full months (E) was a well known contemporary of Maximilian arrested nearby.


Stage 5: N48°22.(D*30-22) E010°53.(E*50+67)        F =
With whom the emperor used to live here:
with his Gemahlin Blanca Maria ---> F = 100
with Kunz von der Rosen ---> F = 190
with Götz von Berlichingen ---> F = 236


Stage 6: N48°22.(F+306) E010°53.(F+545)            G =
How many years (G) did the "amusing consultant of the emperor" live here?


Final: N48°22.(2*D*G+42) E010°53.(4*E*G-84)
The GPS accuracy is very bad here and fickle.
However, with your skilled expert's eye you will find the box quickly.
It can be easily reached from the sidewalk!

Please put the box back exactely in the corner!

Eine schöner Multi mit sehr schönem Logbuch 🙂

Nachdem der Termin in Augsburg erledigt war, sollte es zum Shoppen und Cachen in die Innenstadt gehen.

Diesen Multi wollte ich als gebürtiger Kaufbeurer schon deshalb machen, da  Kaiser Maximilian der Überlieferung nach den Kaufbeurern das Tänzelfest anlässlich eines Besuches im Jahr 1497 gestiftet haben soll.

Die Fragen an den Stationen konnten gut beantwortet werden und das Final dank dem Hint problemlos und unauffällig geborgen werden.

Danke für diese interessante Runde!

Heute war ich auf Erledigungstour in der Stadt unterwegs und da ich noch etwas Zeit hatte, habe ich mich entschlossen diesen Multi zu lösen. Die Stationen hatte ich schnell erledigt, aber am Final waren ganz schön viele Muggels unterwegs. Nach einer kurzen Wartezeit konnte ich aber dennoch unauffällig loggen.

Danke für die Runde und dem einfallsreichen Final.

Heute abend begab ich mich auf die Spuren von Kaiser Maximilian. Erinnerungen an die schöne Sonderausstellung im gleichnamigen Museum kamen wieder hoch,

Die meisten Stages waren von anderen Multis bekannt, aber dennoch nett. Am Final lag glaub ich vor längerer Zeit schon mal eine andere Dose.
