Caches No’s 5167 to 5172 – Bonn Mega Part 1

We were in a coffee shop in Manchester while we were there for the Geocoinfest in September and Kerry booked a flight to Bonn at a nice price… and was quickly followed by Alison and Matthew, come December the price of the flights hadn’t increased and they had a four bedroom AirBnB, so it seemed like a good idea to go as well.
And so on 28th February I ended up on an Aeroplane to Germany for a weekend2020 is the 250th Anniversary of Beethoven’s birth so his home city of Bonn city is having a major celebration throughout the year.

28th February 2020 – BTHVN Story Lab Cache – Alter Friedhof – cache #5167
The first thing we did on arriving in Bonn was to visit the grave of Beethovens Mother… as it was part of the Beethoven Anniversary Lab Cache trail

28th February 2020 – Emmas zweiter Geocache GC85Q40 – cache #5168
We then went to our AirBnB which was a few stops out of town on the local train, after we had dropped off our bags and sorted ourselves out we went back to the local station for the train back into the city… first though we stopped off for this cache near our station

28th February 2020 – Bonner Schranken #1 GC8HRZE – cache #5169
The Friday night event was being held just outside the town centre, so we headed there, and found this cache just near the venue

28th February 2020 – Welcome to Beethoven City GC8D29K – cache #5170
The Friday night event was mainly outdoors, which wasn’t that good as it was raining most of the night. Fortunately thanks to Scotty Duck of Geocacheland we blagged our way inside and mixed with the three visiting Groundspeak Lackeys and some of the people whose accomodation was at the venue

28th February 2020 – Heute schon gelesen? GCYZR8 – cache #5171
On our way back to the main station after the event we called off for a couple of ‘urban’ caches, this was the first, in a phone box which is now a book crossing station

28th February 2020 – The key to BTHVN GC8BZR9 – cache #5172
And this one second which was stuck on a signpost
