Feast your eyes on the KochBuchCache in the region of Thüringen, Germany located in the quaint old city of Erfurt. In case you don’t speak German, “Kochbuch” translates to “cookbook”, and you’re encouraged to add your own delicious recipes to the book when you find the cache.
Your search begins just outside the 1,200 year old gothic style Erfurt Cathedral, also known as St Mary’s Cathedral, overlooking the hillside and main town square. The first stage, a small container containing a key, grants you access to the nearby second and final stage: a public mailbox that contains the logbook and a cookbook.
KochBuchCache has been logged over 3,000 times. This leaves a lot of room for tasty cuisine suggestions awaiting you at the cache. Ranging from savory desserts to classic German dishes, the cookbook offers a mix of recipes that will awaken your tastebuds. You may walk away with a new favorite meal—after all, geocaching sure can work up an appetite.
