Descrizione    English (Inglese)

The Romans are said to have built a 'castrum' (an army camp) on this plate between Maas and Jeker, near Roman transport routes and near the towns Tongeren and Maastricht.
From 'castrum' derived the name of the plate: Caestert. The camp changed into the Castle of Caestert.
This castle was finally destroyed in 1972 by a fire.

Park your car at N 50° 48.360' E 005° 41.397'.

Now take the right way up: it will lead you along the 'Wall of Caestert', through a bridge and to the old farm, the only building that remained of the ancient Castle of Caestert.
Admire the building, look into the valley west of the plate and do not forget to note the year (ABCD) given at the entrance of the farm area.
At N 50° 48.(301+ABC)' E 005° 41.(985-BCD)' you will find the cache (a small plastic box).

By the way: There is a new wooden fence keeping children away from the caves.
The cache is some steps beyond the fence, but still in a safe area.

If you are going to search for all Caestert caches we would propose to visit them in this order:
1. Lost Castle
2. Cut here!
3. Lost Valley.

Nach dem Besuch der unterirdischen Steinbrüche sind wir noch beim Schloss vorbeigekommen.
Der Mini-Multi ging schnell über die Bühne.

I plaaned to get all three caches on the hill, so I started with this multi.
Cool place and very interesting building.

At the final, I had to search a little bit, but in the end, well, I wouldn't do this log otherwise icon_smile_wink.gif

All a little bit wet inside.
