Caches in Germany

A cache is usually a container of various sizes. Each cache contains a notebook, so-called logbook, a pen or pencil and small items for exchange, which are left here by the cachers. Each cache has its own unique GC code. You can also find wooden coins in the caches, so-called SWG. You are welcome to keep these as a souvenir!

Farewell fossil fuels

Save the Earth

Art meets climate.

In Münster there are several caches that are very special. The common idea is to show a photo of a special feature in the city in the listing without revealing the exact location. You only get to know where the feature is located. In this cache, the destnation is located exactly where the photo was taken and shows how art can also be used to fight the climate crisis.

This short tour shows you how a harmonious coexistence of the residents of the adjacent city and nature with its creatures can work and what history is hidden behind their coexistence.  


A bird sanctuary near the city centre? Münster has one: In the Rieselfeldern you can observe rare bird species and take a walk to relax from everyday life.

Just six kilometres north of Münster’s city centre lies a wetland that could hardly be more idyllic: On your search for the cache, you’ll encounter a mosaic of shallow water and reed beds, wet grassland and avenues of fruit trees. Above all, however, you will discover birds of various species that have found a home in the 230-hectare nature reserve. Many endangered bird species find a shelter here where they can breed and where they can find enough food for themselves and their young.


Attention puzzle solvers, this cache is for you. The Botanical Garden in the castle park in Münster introduces the diversity of the plant world in an entertaining and understandable way. Other important functions of the garden are the protection of endangered plant species and generally a contribution to the preservation of biodiversity.
