Not found 27 November 2020 Slini11 did not find the geoacache

Hier war ein loggen heute leider nicht möglich, da die Ausstellung Covid19-bedingt geschlossen war (wie auch auf der Webseite steht). Daher wäre es super, wenn der Owner den Cache so lange deaktivieren könnte, damit man nicht umsonst vor verschlossenen Türen steht ;).

Viele Grüße,
