23-Jan-2005 -- Als GPS-Junky war mir diese Konfluenz schon länger bekannt. Als mir der Vater meiner Freundin erzählte, dass es dort auch einen entsprechenden Gedenkstein gibt, musste ich dort natürlich erst recht hin. Dabei habe ich festgestellt, dass der Gedenkstein ca. 50-100 Meter von der eigentlichen Konfluenz entfernt liegt.

Daher auch die Bilder des Gedenksteins. Leider ist das Bild mit GPS-Daten sehr unscharf. Aber mein Hund Kaja sitzt genau auf der Konfluenz!

English version

23-Jan-2005 -- Being a GPS-addict, this Confluence was known to me already a while. When my girl-friend's father told me that there is also a corresponding memorial stone, this was of course even more a reason to go there. In doing so, I noticed that the memorial stone is located about 50-100 m from the proper Confluence.

Hence the pictures of the memorial stone. Unfortunately, the picture with the GPS data is very blurry. But my dog Kaja is sitting exactly on the Confluence.

Translation of the memorial stone's inscription:

Notice
Being unique in Lippe, at this location
is situated a geographical intersection
9° eastern longitude
52° northern latitude

(Translation G. Kaufmann 211008)

Coordinator's Note: This visit is unsuccesful as it doesn't meet the photographic requirements of the Project.
