Geocaching is often referred to as a modern paperchase or "scavenger hunt 2.0". People (geocachers) hide a small box with a notebook (logbook) somewhere amid nature or in the city and publish the coordinates of the hiding place on the Internet. With the help of these details and by using a GPS device, other geocachers can track down the boxes and make an entry in the logbook on site. The box (cache) always remains in the same place and waits for the next geocacher. At home or directly via the geocaching app, you can "log" your find on the Internet and leave a comment.
Geocaching is suitable for almost every age group, it can be carried out all year round and worldwide and is surprisingly great fun. You will learn a lot about the surroundings, combine technology and nature, mental exercise, a feeling of adventure and relaxation. Many geocachers use their hobby to explore the region from another perspective during their vacation - away from the usual tourist highlights.
