Deutsche Beschreibung THE PROJECT

: D wie Düsseldorf

:D Düssel-Impressions

Düsseldorf has got its name from the small river called Düssel. A small settlement was founded where the Düssel flowed into the river Rhine. It's assumed that the name Düssel is based on the Germanic word thusila (to roar, to rush). Today, this is no longer obvious because at least in the area of Düsseldorf, the Düssel is mostly canalised. But there are still many places where the Düssel delights the visitor, calmly flowing.

This cache will show you using a picture search where in Düsseldorf the Northern Düssel and the Southern Düssel are flowing, both above the ground and underground. You will be guided through various parks and to other interesting places.

The tour is about 30 km in total and designed for cyclists. You are following mostly paved paths close to the Düssel which are usually labeled as bicycle or foot paths. You can do the tour on foot as well, but in particular in the central area you have to follow longer sections of pavements.

Before starting with the exploration of the Düssel, you have to solve a puzzle to get the collage with the objects you are looking for. Once the puzzle has been solved, you will find numbers which help you find the start coordinates. The geochecker will contain a link to a PDF file, the original picture to print, a track with all waypoints for the tour and instructions with additional information.

The tour starts at:

N 51° [1/1][6/4].[4/4][2/5][6/4]
E 006° [3/1][2/4-3/5].[7/4][1/1][4/4]

There is no geocache to find at the listed coordinates. No cache which is part of the :D series requires to trespass rail tracks or highways.
