But what is geocaching?

Geocaching is a trendy sport and can best be described as a digital scavenger hunt. A so-called "cache" stands for a treasure, which is marked with geo-coordinates and can usually be found at them. The Castle Road Geotour (CRGT for short) consists of 6 main locations: Deutschlandsberg Castle, Kornberg Castle, Fürstenfeld Arrow Castle, Güssing Castle, Rakican Castle and Ptuj Castle and 20 secondary locations.
