Geocaching Tour Warth.

"Pastor Müller and the white gold".

In the footsteps of ski pioneer Pastor Müller.
When Warth pastor, Johann Müller, read about skiing for the first time in in a newspaper in 1894, he thought to himself that this might be really quite helpful in the snow-abundant Tannberg region. He ordered some for himself and then was the first to ski across open terrain and through the deep snow from Warth to Lech - what a sensation! This was the beginning of ski sport in the region.
