A forest near the town of Bleien AG.




Jump on the train which leaves Zurich at 13:04 towards Aarau. Easy to get there by train.


Another easy accessible hash not too far from a train station, only one and a half hours from my home. Since it was a quiet sunday and i had nothing particular to do, i jumped on the train and went.

The town is really small, only a hand full of houses, and absolutely nothing else. It was pretty cold, and i didn't eat that much in the morning, so i really froze my ass off. I found the area quite easily, although the snow-covered trees played tricks on my GPS. But eventually i found the exact position and built a little snowman there. :) The temperature at the hashpoint was 3°C celsius, so i failed another attempt to get the frozen geohash achievement. Damn! While i was there i realized the complete silence around me. Since i live and work in the city, there is always some sort of noise around me. It was really beautiful.

On the way back i saw a castle up on a hill, which turned out to be Schloss Liebegg (Castle Liebegg, text in German).

The only restaurant in town was closed, so had to wait outside in the cold for my train back home.
