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
The Lacke viewpoint provides a wonderful view over the Sonnenplateau and large parts of the Inntal valley. There is now finally a multicache that takes you past the Lehnberghaus to the Lacke. The path from the paid car park (visitors with a Gäste.Card from Sonnenplateau Mieming & Inntal will receive a free parking ticket from their landlord or at the TVB office) to the treasure takes around 1.5 hours of pure walking time. The Lehnberghaus offers refreshments on the way back down. The Lacke viewpoint is located at about 1,700 meters above sea level and you move in alpine terrain, so sturdy footwear is highly recommended in any season.
You can leave your caching vehicle at the following parking coordinates:
N 47° 18.751
E 010° 54.175
