Description    Deutsch  ·  English

The way of about 3-4 km leads to different stations in the Rostock city habour. A bicycle can be recommended but is not necessary of course. You will need a pen and sheet of paper for notes. While searching it is never necessary to leave public ways. Parking is possible next to the start coordinates.

Unfortunately like many bigger towns Rostock suffers from malicious damage by ugly scratching and tagging. But this geocache will show you some of the Graffiti paintings for beautification of our town. Most of the paintings are the result of direct orders. Thank you to artunique, dosensport and the Graffiti Freunde for their art. You can read more about Graffiti at Wikipedia.

The way to the cache
It is your task to go to the different stations in the city habour and collect all the information that you will need to evaluate the final coordinates.

Supi. Im vierten Anlauf doch noch gefunden. Es war schon fast ein Klassiker. Vor jedem Stadtbummel mal ein paar Minuten suchen , ob der Kleine sich heute zu erkennen gibt. Nun stehen wir als dritter im neuen Karton. Bedankt.
.Wir waren hier!.
