This cache can be searched and found like any other traditional cache, but...
...it can be the starting point for an international cooperation as well:
This cache is just one cache of a set of 30 caches named European IMC No.1 ... (IMC= International Multi-Cache). These caches are hidden in 15 European countries:
Austria (A), Belgium (B), Denmark (DK), Finland (FIN), France (F), Germany (D), Great Britain (GB), Hungary (H), Ireland (IRL), Italy (I), Luxembourg (L), Netherlands (NL), Portugal (P), Spain (E) and Sweden (S).
In each country there is a „primary cache“ like this one and a „secondary cache“ that can only be found with „hints“ distributed to all primary caches.
The 15 primary caches are named „European IMC No.1 P-x-yyy“ and the 15 secondary caches „European IMC No.1 S-x-zzz“ where x is the country code given above and yyy and zzz can be any additional name.
The hints for the secondary caches are printed on „lists of hints“ that are inside the primary caches. As the primary caches are scattered all over Europe it will either require a lot of travelling or - and that is the intention of the European IMC No.1 – international cooperation:
If you want to find the secondary cache as well, you should contact finders of other primary European IMC No.1 caches and exchange the hints.
And please don´t be a poor sport!
Never publish these hints anywhere! Not in a log report or on any website. The hints shall only be exchanged / traded between geocachers that found the primary caches and want to search the secondary caches.
The European IMC No.1 team wishes you good luck!

You can park your car at the coordinates given above.
Go in the direction of the castle and look for the tree “Geriichtslann” at N 49° 54,356 E 006° 04,684.
An inscription on the wall of the tower will tell you when this tree was planted. Transform this date into DDMMYYYY format, and assign this number to ABCDEFGH.
You will find the cache nearby:
at N 49° 54.(H-D+E,D,B-2A) E 006° 04.(D-E,A,H-D)

Besides some goodies it contains a logbook with several copies of a list of hints for the Secondary Caches. Please take one with you and keep it in case some other geocacher asks you for any of the hints.

Don’t forget to visit the castle itself – it’s really worth this visit!

I found a "sad" cache here, because he was a little bit wet and there was no logbook in the cache. I tried to dry the cache a little bit and put a new logbook into the cache, but I think it should be controlled by the owner.

+ Logbook, pencil

Greetings from Trier

P.S. There ist no TB inside the cache

Third Cpt. Cook cache today. Well, made it in the wrong order - have been to the secondary cache first then to this one :-))
Crossing the street near the location someone said Hello - obviously another team. After solving the first task and finding the cache we returned to our car and met again members of the team met before and had some nice talks. So incidently we have met the Squirrel-Family :-)) Hope to meet you at the Daun meeting on July, 12th.
Very professional logbook inside the cache and a marvelous castle nearby.
