I've tried to find a few caches, where the coordinates were showing the T-Mobile telestation, such like that:
enter image description here

I'm used to not being able to find geocache (I'm not enough experienced, or maybe simple I don't have good enough perception), but this case doesn't give me rest - I just couldn't figure any movable parts here, where something can be placed without risking damaging the machine or triggering alert.

Is there any 'standard' place to hide in such machines? I don't know any cacher around to ask for a tip.


Well, this is one of the standard hiding place in German cities ;o). You should inspect the foot-rest (which is plastic btw, but a film container fits into it perfectly)...

  • Is there a footrest on my photo? I'm not sure what part do you have in mind... Have you maybe some example photo? ;) Jan 17 '14 at 17:06
  • The grey "tray" a bit below knee height. The thing you would naturally use if you want to tie your shoes.

  • I didn't know that's for placing foot on them ;) Next time I'll look there. Jan 17 '14 at 17:13
  • OK I haven't found any cache but I've checked one of those telestations. There's nice place on the bottom of that foot-rest. Jan 20 '14 at 19:52

This depends on what sort of cache it is, and how big it is. I presume it is some sort of 'micro' or 'nano' cache.

One popular type for these is a screwtop magnetic container, eg Nano Cache Container. These are only about 1cm diameter and height, and often silver or black. So if stuck onto something metal, it can be hardly noticeable. It might just look like a bolt head.

I'm not familiar with that sort of telephone booth, but from the photo it looks like there is plenty of metal surface. So a magnetic container could be stuck on any of that, maybe underneath something. Also, it may look like a bolt, so it might help to feel around, and see if anything moves.

  • Well, every place I've inspected is quite exposed in that telepohones... Aug 11 '13 at 17:30
