Geocaching (pronunciation), refers to a treasure hunt with a smartphone in the real world. This "hunt" often leads to amazing and great places. There are more than 3 million geocaches worldwide, some are in South Tyrol and the area around Merano.
The hiding places (caches) are found with the help of GPS coordinates and smartphone or GPS receiver.
The cache is often a solid, waterproof container with a log book. The finder can sign this log.
Important: While searching for the cache, other people should not recognise the intention, so that the hiding place remains hidden from unknowing people.
