How to go on a Treasure Hunt?

Following the marked route you will discover small caches (treasure boxes). Each cache contains a riddle. Solve it and write the letter into the right box of your treasure map. Everyone who has found all letters can compose the code word. Knowing the code word, you can pick up a small treasure at the Information Obergurgl where you complete the riddle and recover the treasure. Geocachers can also log their finds on geocaching.com.

The route is about 3 km long, walking time 1.5 - 2 hours.
