Geocaching connects nature with hiking fun. It is ideal for families and those who don't like walking because it includes solving puzzles, completing tasks and searching for hidden treasure. The list below shows which 'treasures' are hidden in Innsbruck and the surrounding area.
Period: spring – autumn
This geocache will take you through various neighbourhoods and quiet hamlets of the Municipality of Inzing. This cache requires a pure walking time of 1.5 to 2.5 hours depending on which path you take to return to the starting point.
You do not need to leave the signposted path in order to find the individual clues. The cache itself is a few metres away from the path.
The best thing to do is to park your caching vehicle at the following coordinates:
N 47° 16.482
E 011° 11.342
Follow the path over the bridge at waypoint 1 (N 47° 16.466 and E 011° 11.222) to the first clue.

Find how many words make up the inscription on the front of the chapel and write that down as B:
N 47° 16.295

Follow the path past waypoint 2 (N 47° 16.193 and E 011° 10.620) to the next clue.

Now that you have visited all of the stations, it's time to calculate the final coordinates:
N 47° G.(E-D)(C+F)[(A+B)/5]
E 011° (G-C).(B+F)(D-9)(A+F)
