Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5
This harbor was a lively industrial area from the mid 19th century until the 1990s. It is now being transformed into an upmarket residential area. The harbor was once dominated by ferry traffic to Landskrona i Skåne (1953-1993). It is now being transformed into a pleasure boat harbor. The harbor has some little known World War II memorials.
This tour of contrasts has three stops:
Stop 1 is at the cache coordinates. Your target is a bottle. On the label on the neck of the bottle a year is mentioned. Call that four-digit number Y.
Stop 2 is a small glass jar, about 4 cm in size. The coordinates are N 55º 43.abc', E 12º 35.xyz'. To determine abc, subtract 1247 from Y. To determine xyz, subtract 1627 from Y. About 40 m south of stop 2 you can see two more bottles. Unfortunately they are not accessible to the public these days.
The glass jar at stop 2 contains the coordinates of stop 3, which is a 3 liter plastic box wrapped in a plastic bag.
