(visited by Ross Finlayson)

27-Jul-2015 -- It was a rainy day in Graz, so I took a break from sightseeing to tackle this confluence point to the west of Graz. Fortunately it had stopped raining by the time I started hiking, but the vegetation nearby was still wet, so my shoes and trousers ended up soaked afterwards.

Like many of the previous visitors, I found a narrow paved road that passes just 250 m or so from the point. I parked at a pull-out at 47.00200°N 14.99858°E, and started hiking first along an overgrown road cut, then steeply up the hill towards the point.

The confluence point lies on a grassy, partially-logged hillside - i.e., it lies among both stumps (from earlier logging) and mature pine trees. There is a clear view to the north of several farm buildings far in the distance.
