Flurbereiningungdenkmal Strullendorf

On the north corner of Strullendorf, at the foot path at Bamberger Str. (N49 50.870 E010 57.818) you'll see the 'Flurbereinigungdenkmal'. It's something very specific to Germany: a monument commemorating an action of agricultural land reorganizing. 

Near the monument, there's a Marterl from XVIII century and board commemorating sister city relation to Izsak in Hungary.

Little Holy Mary shrines on the walls, Forchheim

On my visit in Forchheim I've spotted many little shrines on the walls. The statues of Holy Mary are placed either in niches or outside, under little roof.

Kunstweg in Rednitzhembach

There's an interesting project near Rednitzhembach (south from Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany) called Kunstweg. It's the trail going through the fields, the forest and the town, near which there are various modern skulptures and art installations.

Interesting caches near Georgesgmund

I was today on a walk around Georgesgmund. Here are some interesting caches I've found and logged:

A troll cache. A large box in a ground, with 2 food containers and a small chest box.
A chain cache. A long chain which you must pull out of the tube before you're able to log. And a camouflage looking like a shit ;)

The cache is withing a trigger mechanism. You must turn the handle, and the mechanism will open.

Chinese-stick cache. You must take some twigs and push the lab tube step-by-step above, until you can grab it.


A barbie cache. A large container, looking like an electric box. Instead some 'decorations', a logbook, a treasure box, and a letters to build your nickname from:
