No cache is worth to risc your health!

My grandfather once told me the story about the church-mouse in St. Nicolai.

Once the 3rd and 4th advent fell on same sunday. That is seldom and the church was filled with peasents that had a day off. The sexton had to empty the collection twice. But he was tempted by all the sterling and ran away with it. The church was bankrupt and the priest couldn't distribute the sacrament of the Eucharist. The little church mouse had mercy and rolled her last crumbs out of her hiding to the Christians so that they could share the bread.

Because mice can not be canonized, the parish thanked her in a very special way...

What to do? Discover this cute, hidden landmark of Flensburg and take a photographic picture.
Be shure to personalize the photo (by showing your thumb, talisman, driver's-licence in the pic) because of copyrights!
Upload the photo as SPOILER. Merci!

N.B. The smily of the story is a german saying: "to bee poor as a church mouse" = to be totally bankrupt.

Bus: All lines in Flensburg, step off at "Südermarkt" respectively "Angelburger St."

Die Flensburger Kirchenmaus war schon häufig das Ziel von Tradis, Multis und Virtuals, zwischendurch wurde sie sogar "gekaut" und musste ersetzt werden.

Daher war die Position bekannt und as Photo konnte heute schnell erstellt werden.

Grüsse aus Nordfriesland an den bekannten CO

Na das ist doch mal was. Kunst am Bau. Und kein Hinweis darauf warum und von wem. Soetwas gebührt viel mehr Aufmerksamkeit. Und daher freue ich mich besonders über diesen Cache.
