This is how it works
Visit Luther trees in your neighbourhood and find small hidden treasures.
On our map trees with a Geocache are highlighted blue.
Geocaching is a global treasure hunt for the whole family. The basic idea is to hide a container and to publish the position on the web. There are several kinds of caches. Traditional caches consist our of a container, including a logbook and small items (treasures). A GPS-compatible mobile phone or a GPS-receiver and the information published online will lead you close to the treasure. It is also part of the treasure hunt to let nobody know that you are searching for a treasure.
How do I find
a Luther treasure (cache) ?
See the map of all Luther tree caches. Each location entry contains additional information and a link to geocaching.com / opencaching. There you find the GPS data to the cache. You can also enter the geocaching platforms directly and type in the search term “Luther tree” / “Lutherbaum”.
The GPS data will guide you close to the cache. As soon as you have found the cache you sign in the logbook and leave a note on the Geocache website. With the QR-code on the container you receive further information about the Luther tree.
How do I create
a Luther tree cache ?
After having found a Luther tree in your neighbourhood and collecting information you can create a cache by yourself. Therefor you need a small weatherproof container. Hide the container at the tree or close to it. Create an entry with the GPS position at geocaching.com / opencaching and send further information about the tree to us (link to registration form below).
You can add a text about you and your tree or make a film clip (3 minutes maximum). We publish it on our website as soon as possible. For the cache you will receive a sticker with a QR code from us. This code is linked to the tree-information on our website. You can affix this sticker to your cache.
Somebody from your group should be willing to check on the cache on a regularly basis.
