A touch of Indiana Jones: go on a treasure hunt in neanderland with your smartphone and combine exercise in beautiful nature with games, fun and excitement. Discover unusual places, look at roots, trees and stones with different, detective eyes and solve the mystery of the hidden treasure. Hiking becomes a big, exciting adventure, and not just for children. Newcomers can try geocaching on easy stages. But of course there are also much more complicated hiding places, so that the pros don't get bored. I wish you success!

What is geocaching?

Geocaching is a modern day treasure hunt or scavenger hunt. The aim is to use GPS to find hidden containers – so-called “caches” – in an open area and then to hide them again in the same place. The lockable caches can contain small gifts and a log book in which finders can write their names. Anyone who has hidden something enters information about this hiding place in a database. Using this data, the players try to track down the cache. You can easily get started with the game via portals such as www.geocaching.com. Beginners can set up a free account here. The app shows you where suitable caches are hidden in the area. There is also a step-by-step description of how to proceed after a find. If you want to try the more complicated multi or puzzle caches, you need a paid premium version of the app. Alternatively, you can also search with a GPS device.
