Hikers in Search of Treasures
The main treasure is inside yourself - Roman -
The idea of the project is to encourage you to go to hike on your own or with a few friends and get connected with the nature while searching for treasure.
The first 5 treasures you can easily find by following the description on the website, while visiting some of the most beautiful places in Jena. In each treasure is a small present that people left before you, so you can also leave treasure for others. When you find all 5 treasures, you will be able to solve the mystery where the main secret treasure is hidden.
You can go on a treasure hunt at any time. There is no end day, no start day! Good luck!

Treasure at Mönchsberg
From the Mönchsberg observation deck, which is surrounded by a wooden fence, you need to follow the path along the cliff to the left, passing over the fence.
Walk about 30 meters until there is a strongly inclined tree, turn to the left in front of it. And go 20 meters to a tall thin pine tree, in the picture it is marked with an arrow.
The box is hidden in the bushes just behind this tree. A couple of meters further there will be a fence made of mesh. Be careful, treasures are slightly covered with grass
Treasure at Jenzig
Climb Jenzig along the Drachenpfad road. Almost at the very top there will be information posters. From them there is a short path to the top. Climb along this path to a level observation deck, without climbing on it on the left, a couple of meters away there is a crack in the rock, where you will find treasures behind the stone.
An alternative path, for those who find it difficult to climb this path, climb to the very top and then descend from the top through a small forest to the bottom to the observation deck. To do this, you will need to climb over the fence
Treasure at Lobdeburg
Continue going up the path, as soon as you pass the path going down to the left, you need to go a little more, until the tree on the left side, which is in the photo (after about 10 meters from this tree there will be a path to the right).
To the right of this tree, three meters away, lies a tree, under which there is a treasure.
To find a treasure, you should follow the description (all details are included in the map above). All treasures are hidden easily and are in one container each.
Respect our trust
Do not take the container away and hide it as similar as possible again! Often we covered it with grass, leaves or stones so that no strangers suddenly find it. The container should be in a bag.
Prepare a gift for the next person
Before you go off in search of the treasure, prepare a gift to replace it with the gift you find in the box.
The container for the treasure is 18 x 12 x 8 cm and waterproof. As a gift you can prepare everything, but it should fit in and last a long time e.g. sweets or something handmade, no fruits etc. But it does not have to be expensive.

🇬🇧 The big treasure 😍
There is also a secret treasure of the five adventurous brothers. To find it, you should find all five treasures. On the inside of each cover there is a clue to the secret hidden treasure. Once you have found all five clues, put the information together and it will lead you to the main treasure. All the clues are only for you, please do not share this information with others. You must first personally find all five treasures.
🇩🇪 Der große Schatz 😍
Es gibt auch einen Geheimschatz von den fünf abenteuerlichen Brüdern. Um ihn zu finden, sollst Du alle fünf Schätze finden. Auf der Innenseite jeden Deckels gibt es einen Hinweis zum geheim versteckten Schatz. Sobald Du alle fünf Hinweise gefunden hast, fasse die Informationen zusammen und sie wird Dich zu dem Hauptschatz führen. Alle Hinweise sind nur für Dich, teile bitte nicht diese Information mit anderen. Du sollst zuerst persönlich alle fünf Schätze finden.
Some brave hikers have already found some of the treasures and shared these photos.
Review of one of the participants
The treasure hunt was a lot of fun! None of the spots are more than a 2 km hike out of Jena, so it's totally feasible to go hunting after work or studying. Once you've arrived at one of the destinations, the descriptions on the website consistently lead you to the treasure. It's a little tricky (just so everyone passing by doesn't find them), but easy enough not to get frustrated. Bonus perk: the trasure sites are at some of the most beautiful viewpoints jena has to offer.
Once you've puzzled together the clues from all 5 chests, you can go find the final treasure where (only almost literally) the pot of gold is waiting for you.
If you want to keep some of the treasure you find, make sure to bring something for the next person to get excited about 💰
