Esenser Barencache litterly means " The Bear Cache from Esen"

The link to the location is in Germany duh. The cache page is also in Germany duh.

Der Bar von Esens also translates to The Bar From Esens.

The story that follows describes the medevil town of Esens a walled city in Northern Germany. The town was laid siege by a enemy force. However, that force could not defeat the towns defense (moat, outer wall and inner wall. The town had a dancing bear that was kept in a cage inbetween the two walls. Well the enemy was unable to breakdown the defenses of the town. So they decided to starve the city out. After a period of time the town was almost ready to surender. The bear which was also starving escaped from his cage and climbed upon the walls of the city. It commenced to growl loudly and knock rocks down on the enemy troops. Upon seeing this the enemy force thought that the town had so much food that it was still able to feed all of it's animals. The withdrew and the town survived.

As far as the rest of the web page goes it describe a multicache. duh
