Geocaching tours through Bremerhaven

Geocaching is a modern type of treasure hunt in which great hiding places in as yet unknown locations are to be tracked down using a corresponding app on a smartphone or GPS device based on geographical coordinates. These geocaching tours are a special edition for the "Science Year 2020|21 - Bioeconomy" of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

What do I need?

A GPS-enabled mobile device/smartphone with an appropriate app as well as a swap item (if something is taken).

Here's how it works:

In the Havenwelten and the Schaufenster Fischereihafen, small boards with puzzle games are hidden, which are to be tracked down using coordinates via the Adventure Lab app. To find the starting point, simply launch the app and search for the adventure "Dive down to the sea creatures" or "Track down the algae as a source of raw materials". The locations are displayed in the app. By solving the individual puzzles, you get numbers that help you track down the bonus treasure. These numbers form the coordinates that define the exact location of the treasure. The puzzles and tasks to be solved in this special edition for the "Science Year 2020|21 - Bioeconomy" are not only exciting, but also provide entertaining information about fish and sea creatures of sustainable aquaculture and you learn about the secret of algae as a source of raw materials.
