Hello and welcome to Dagmar's Cache!
This Cache consists of two parts. One which you can solve from home and one for which you have to go outdoors. All tasks can be done in and around Jena in about 3 hours. Good luck!
Task 1: This woman (Picture 1) is so prominent that she 'glows'. Her daughter received the Nobel price. In which year? Year = ABCD
Task 2: This element was discovered by S. Hofmann et al in Darmstadt on 02-09-1996. Which is the number of this element? Number = EFG
Task 3: 7600 Hectopascal (hPa) expressed in atmospheres (atm) = H,I.
Task 4: Valves of laboratory devices are multicolored marked depending on the matter flowing through (DIN 12920). Which color is used for vacuum? Green (1), black (2), or grey (3)? Color = J
Task 5: This old postcard (Picture 2) shows the 7 wonders of Jena. Give (vertically from top left to bottom right) their latin names! The first letters are then replaced according to key 1. 1. = K; 2. = L; 3. = M; 4. = N; 5. = O; 6. = P; 7. = Q.
Task 6: The name of this cache probably comes from a male first name, that consists of two old german (or celtic) words. Transform the first letters of this words according to key 1. 1. = R; 2. = S.

Insert the numbers obtained until now and you will get Key 2:
Task 9: Take your backpack and fill it with the following equipment. (Use key 2, but take care, it uses german words and is ambiguous!):
Equipment No. 1:
Equipment No. 2:
Equipment No. 3:
Task 10: Use key 2 and calculate the first position:
Position 1: N 50°DL,68R'; E 11°JG,8A6'
Arrived at position 1, find a solution for the mathematical task you will find there. Divide the quantity of the result by 2 and insert the resulting number in Key 3:
Use key 3 and calculate position 2. Go there!
Position 2: N 50°55,A6B'; E 11°AA,2BD'
Task 11: Arrived at position 2, ask Mr. Bernhard Rudolph for his hometown. Transform it according to key 2 and divide by 9. Insert the result in Key 4:
Use key 2 and you will be given a daytime
Go to position 3 at this given daytime (use key 4):
Arrived at this position use equipment no.1 and
you will find Cache No.1. In it you will find position 4. This is the
ultimate position of Dagmar's Cache.
