Next to a residential house in Schwalbach am Taunus near Frankfurt.



Go there in the afternoon and find a couple of Geocaches afterwards.


We arrived there with the last bit of daylight left and immediately noticed that the hash is indeed in the back of a residential house. We started walking up and down the road trying to decide if we should at least walk up the driveway and see how close we could get to the hash.

At that point we apparently got noticed by a young lady doing her ironing in front of the window on the ground floor the house next to the hash. About a minute later her husband appeared on the balcony and nicely asked us to explain ourselves.

We did, and whether or not he ever heard of Geohashing we're not sure (our guess is that he's heard of Geocaching before) when we briefly explained the concept, he seemed to relax a bit, and even allowed us to walk around the house in order to reach the hash. We even offered to leave the Active Geohasher poster, but he obviously didn't trust us enough to take it ;)

Anyway, should he ever read this: thanks again!

We then went for a couple of Geocashes nearby:
