Geocaching is the latest global sporting craze. Never heard of it? Then let us explain:

The aim is to find small containers (geocaches), which are hidden in the open air in the forest, at the side of the road or near places of interest. The best thing about this activity is that both young and old can participate.

You need a GPS device that can read the corresponding data on the geocaches, which is downloaded from the Internet. This shows your position and that of the geocache. You may need to take sturdy shoes or waterproof clothing with you – this modern treasure hunt can be combined perfectly with hiking or a tour.

Many of these points already exist in and around Simmern/Hunsrück. You too can discover the challenges posed by nature!

By the way, the tour designers are always happy to receive feedback.
