Description    Deutsch  ·  English

and in English, oops hard to translate the story, you might need a little German to solve the riddle anyway:

The Krausens Otto (a.k.a. Otto Kraus),

Attention!!! 2009/07/11 the hint has been modified. Since this cache is not as static as one might expect, the resulting coordinates are not totally reliable. That's why the hint has been adapted. When in doubt, use the spoiler-picture.


Krausens Otto has been a humble guy. He has been living in Schafhof working as a locomotive driver. He didn't have a lot of money though, and when his daily railroad track, the 'Verbindungskurve Erlenstegen' has been abandoned, he got discarded. He had to give up his flat and lived as a garden plot holder in Klingenwald from then on.

He grew tomatoes and pumpkins there until he deceased this summer.
But throughout the time, he did hide his emergency reserve at his former workplace in a lunchbox. If you wanna have a look what he kept there, you have to visit the following coordinates:

ABCD = the year, when Krausens Otto went to retirement

N 4B° 28.55C
E AA° 07.DDC

The above coordinates belong to a railway control center nearby, where he used to visit a colleague from time to time chatting about good old railway times.

If you wanna search for his lunch box, be careful, not all railway tracks there are a abandoned yet. The garden plot holders are often nosy people. Take care of your kids, and always try to operate in 'stealth mode'.

Gettin hungry while caching? You can visit Otto's favourite place for the evening at Klingenwald 2 N 49° 28.522 E 11° 07.065. The fried sausage is recommended. Closed on Tuesdays.


Have fun

So, die Baustelle ist weg, der Zugang ist leider nach wie vor durch einen Zaun versperrt. Drum bleibt mir nur, den Cache zu archivieren.
Vom Otto soll ich euch posthum ausrichten, dass er sich sehr über die vielen Besucher seiner Brotdose gefreut hat. Allen Fans der Überreste von Ottos Hausstrecke seien die Caches Erlastegen am Rande, Ameisen am Eichelberg und der Ringbahn Cache empfohlen.

Gruß

Danke an blubalu und adrian142 für die Infos. Ich war heut nochmal da. Der Bauzaun ist inzwischen wirklich geschlossen. Vor 14 Tagen war da noch ne große Lücke. Bis da ein Zugang wieder möglich ist, muß ich erstmal disablen.

So, die Dose wurde ersetzt, der Cache kann wieder gemacht werden.
Bitte geht sorgsam mit der Location um. Druckt euch vorher das Spoilerbild aus. Am besten lauft ihr bei den fiktiven Koordinaten los, geht zu den errätselten Koordinaten und benutzt dort das Spoilerbild zur weiteren Suche. Wenn ihr das Original seht, seid ihr ganz nah dran.
Der Hint wurde wieder leicht aktualisiert, kann aber jederzeit wieder danebenzeigen.
Weiterhin viel Spaß wünscht

Die Box scheint gemuggelt zu sein. Danke für den Tipp. Ich werd mal nachsehen, was da los ist. Dauert allerdings vermutlich bis zum nächsten Wochenende. Bis dahin erstmal disabled.
