This confluence point illustrates how Germany has transformed itself over the centuries from a largely agriculture-based economy to the technological and industrial powerhouse that it is today. The confluence point - on the outskirts of Cologne - lies in a wheat field (reached via a narrow country road), but is next to a busy railroad. Just on the other side of the railroad is a large building owned by Bayer - one of the world's largest pharmaceutical corporations.
