Upon discovering this Geocaching YouTube video, I felt
reanimated because a few months ago I decided to start trying to learn the
German language.Although, to be honest
it has been slow going since I am attempting to teach myself German through
various online lessons, etc. Even though I still have a lot of Deutsch lernen to do, I
was happy to be able to understand a few words such as:
Stadt [shtat] = City
Wald [valt] = Forest
So then, 'Stadt im Wald' in English means 'City in the Forest'.
mein Name ist (insert your name here) [miyn nahmuh ist] = My name is ...
und mein Geocaching Name ist ... = and my geocaching name is ...
alten Plätze [alten pletsuh] = old places
klein [kliyn] = small
The word 'Geocaching' [GEE-oh-cashing] is a no brainer.
Anyways, maybe this will inspire some of you to learn another
language, and expand your Geocaching territory!

About this video:
Watch the first Geocaching.com Presents video from Germany. Join a group of German geocachers as they explore a Lost Place cache. Lost Place Caches takes geocachers to a location that has been all but forgotten by time. Follow a group of geocachers as they search an abandoned Soviet military base. It's located in what used to be East Germany.
Sehe das erste "Geocaching.com Presents" Video aus Deutschland. Schließ dich der Gruppe von deutschen Geocachern an, als sie einen Lost Place, der sie zur einer ehemaligen sowjetischen Militärbasis führt, erforschen.
Sadly, I have to report that this popular Multi-Cache is no
longer.After the demolition of parts of
the site, damage allegedly caused by geocachers, and too many visitors in the
late evening hours, the final access point has been sealed forever by the
forester.The owner of the cache (hornesia caches)
has terminated the cache. "City in the forest (GC17K3A) was undoubtedly one of the most famous German Lost Places caches. Was similar to known really just "The Ruins of prow" which was sent to the archive forever also a few weeks ago."
Never fear!There are
still thousands of geocaches to find throughout Germany and Europe.
