#1: The Confluence from 15 m

(visited by Rainer Mautz and Elionora)

21-Jul-2013 -- After visiting the confluence point 56°N 13°E in Sweden, we took a ferry across Øresund between Helsingborg and Helsingør. It took us an hour driving to reach the town of Asserbo, where this confluence point is located. We parked 350 m north of the confluence in a street named Myretuevej and walked through a forest along some forest tracks in order to reach the exact location.

Right next to the confluence point, there is a wide forest track such that access is very easy. We had the zero reading just 5 m from the center of the track. The track is called Skovbrynet and on this sunny Sunday morning, lots of walkers were using it for a stroll. The forest is deciduous forest mixed with large pine trees.

Now, it was 9 AM and we had already visited two confluence points. We spend the rest of the day about 10 km from the confluence in the harbour town Hundested. There, we saw artistic sand castles.
