#1: The Confluence from 20 m distance

(visited by Rainer Mautz and Elionora)

14-May-2015 -- This is the 4th out of 12 reports reaching confluence points along the 51°N-line. The story starts from 51°N 14°E.

After a drive of 1:26 hours with our rental car from 51°N 12°E, we reached the Obi-Market near this confluence at 8:44 AM. We parked at a distance of 73 m right in front of the empty parking-lot. Due to a holiday, the market was closed and the parking lot empty. It took us just a minute to walk along a field-track to reach the confluence point, which just 5 m into an empty field. Something will be grown during the upcoming summer.

Again, we didn’t hang around for a long time at this confluence, since we planned to visit another 8 confluence points before end-of-day.
