Hunting down a schnitzel isn't easy...
Have you ever been on a Schnitzeljagd? Contrary to what the literal translation of Schnitzel (a crumbed cutlet) and Jagd (hunt) might suggest, you aren't chasing after a juicy piece of meat. Instead, you are on the lookout for hints or clues.
Usually those clues come on a piece of paper. And that's where the German word for scavenger hunt originates from: the trail of Papierschnitzel (scraps of paper) leading the group to some sort of treasure. And who says that treasure can't be a Schnitzel?
But as GPS-based geocache hunting becomes more and more popular, there's no need for paper Schnitzel to go on a proper Schnitzeljagd.
