#1: The confluence point has an official marker - which is quite accurate!

(visited by Ross Finlayson)

28-Aug-2019 -- This is a point that I’ve been following for some time, and I’m pleased to finally visit it, during my first visit to the small country of Luxembourg. I was a bit surprised that so many other people had already visited this point, given that it’s a bit out of the way (by Luxembourg standards), and accessible only via a narrow rural road running up a steep hill. It seems that Luxembourg is a popular destination. Like many Degree Confluence Points in Europe, this one is marked by an official marker; I was surprised to find that it’s very accurate. (Often, these official markers are several tens of meters away, usually due to having been recorded in a different datum.) Personally, I prefer to find Degree Confluence Points completely unmarked; however, I must admit that I find these markers and signs for many European points quite interesting; it’s good to see that local authorities are promoting an interest in geography.

Despite the fact that Luxembourg’s drone rules specify a maximum height of just 50m (compared to 90-120m for most other countries), I was able to get a good drone’s-eye view of the point and its surroundings. This makes this visit a little different from the 28 previous ones!

Here is a remote-controlled aerial video of this confluence point.
