A contemporary treasure hunt with a GPS device
Explore the Kitzbühel Alps in an especially exciting manner - with "Geocaching". As a "treasure-hunter", the Geocaching website provides a guide of the treasures in the surrounding area. With the coordinates from the guides, you can then head out on a route with your GPS device or Smartphone to collect the treasure, also known as a ‘cache’, and leave another one behind. The destination for the exciting search is a water-tight container which has a little gift for the finder and a log book.
Before you go, please register at www.geocaching.com. All caches and coordinates can be found here.
