(visited by Mike Karavanov)

27-Nov-2004 -- I reached this point by DB train. From Oestrich-Winkel railway station to CP was 1.4 km only which I walked on foot easily. On the way I met signs that Riesling wine stands high esteem of local citizen.

CP situated on the skirts of the town in a courtyard of a house in Johannisberger strasse 64. I did not disturb holders and I was satisfied with 20 meters accuracy. I made a couple of pictures around and set out in search of the monument described in narratives of the previous hunters.

It was in hundred meters from CP in Im Proffen park. Then I passed a little more northward and saw the beautiful castle Schloss Johannisberg on the hill. I managed to visit its huge cellars and to participate in Rheingau winetasting. I strongly recommend all Riesling connoisseur to plan the excursion in this castle, lying just in two kilometers from CP.
