Which cache you have found had the most favourite points?

In April this year we found cache GC13Y2Y 'Lego - einer ist zuviel' in Berlin and were amazed that it had nearly 7000 favourite points at that time. Today it has nearly 7400, achieved over 9 years since June 2007. To log it you have to find the one extra lego brick in a 20 foot high yellow lego giraffe sculpture! Amazing fun, and trying to look with no muggles is almost impossible! It would be interesting to know which other caches out there have amazing favourite point scores as well and what other cachers can say or recommend about them.

Wow, over 7400 FAV's is really impressive. My most FAV cache is virtual cache near Tower in Pisa in Italy. It has "only" 508 FAV's...

I made sure I visited the Lego one when I was in Berlin last year, since it had so many FPs. My top 10 highest FP caches were found on that trip, five in Berlin and five in Prague.

Berlin is an amazing place for caches with high FPs. Most of our top FP caches were found there!

For now is my found with most favorites St. Sylvester (GC24FW6) in Germany. There is 1360 FAV points. Next one is Cache my Czech (Prague) (GCF496) in Czech Republic with 1252. But for me was really great (now archived) cache Strateny symbol (Lost Symbol) (GC2K2YD). This cache gets 219 FAV points during 3 years of its existence.

Geocaching Headquarters has the most favorite points (GCK25B), but a cache I did in Texas was so much more fun - Necropolis of Britannia Manor III (GC2B034). This cache was a blast and the CO put a lot of work into it.

For me this was this cache from Wien, which is a bit strange because, in my opinion, this is not the best cache I found there. I think this one ( was much better wink

Some time ago I found GC13Y2Y 'Lego - einer ist zuviel' in Berlin... really tricky one... i was lucky, finding the brick which not belongs there within 15 minutes :-) - at the beginning i wanted to give up, but then ... I got it :-)

I love this cache!

We found a few on a recent holiday there was an earth cache in the vatican and at the colleseum which have a huge number of favourite points but we have found ou best ones in portugal. The best two are below. Their FP's dont always represent good they are as everyone has a different view. These two were rad though - A customer made Metal cache which requires some out of the box thinking to get the log book out. - This cache requires a wade into a water feature was great fun

There are hundreds more that are great caches

Technically, the most favourited cache I have logged is Geocaching HQ. However, I will not count it here since I haven't actually visited the inside of the HQ, just signed the log book. It was available for signing at the Block Party I attended in 2015. Here are the three that comes next.

GC31EQD   Töff Töff für das Kind im Manne (und Frau :-) )   Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany   3901 FP

Fantasic cache, unfortunately it was not working properly when I was there and a little while later it was archived.

Another one, still active, is probably on many statistic hunters lists. It is the second oldest cache in Europe.

GC40   Geocache   Namur, Belgium   3587 FP

Then of course, there is this one, a real classic.

GCGV0P   Original Stash Tribute Plaque   Oregon, USA   3325 FP

When I got there, another cacher was just leaving. He had driven across the country from New York...

But much better are the Crazy Caches (CCs). These are technical gimmicks. Or a new Cache KFZ-NC-100.

Next Year I trevel to Berlin, than I will find "Lego - einer ist zu viel"

I think the number of FPs are meaningless. The percentages are what you should pay attention to.

 This is a nice hike in the woods. A good cache that earns it's favorite points for being kept well maintained for 17.5 years!
