Geocaching - what is it actually?
Geocaching can be defined as a contemporary treasure hunt. Caches (=stashes) are placed in many different places (at times also very unusual) with the aim being that these caches are then found by someone else. Each cache looks different and has its own geo-coordinates that are stored on a global platform, so they are visible to geocachers. As a result, these caches can only be found using a GPS device or with the relevant app on a Smartphone. For a geocacher the biggest joy is having found a cache and putting their name in the log book to confirm their find.
Since summer 2015 there have been three new geocaching tours in the Tannbergg area of Warth, Schröcken and Lech. The routes are related to theme and dedicated to the areas of sport, nature and culture. For instance, geocachers can follow the "Pastor Müller and the white gold circuit" in the footsteps of the clergyman who brought the sport of skiing to the region in 1894. During the "Walser village & natural gems" tour, geocachers get to trace the Walsers and their history and on the tour "Where are the Gips" get to find out more about the unique ‘Gipslöcher’ conservation area, where there is over 1000 sinkholes.
Huge fun, not just for ambitious geocachers, but for all the family too!
