17-Apr-2017 -- Back in Berlin to attend the ECTA annual meeting to present results from our team. As usual I saved a few days for a touristic trip. This time we choose to visit Saxony and Dresden. We took this opportunity to visit the 2 closest CP from Dresden: 51°N 14°E and 51°N 13°E.

This first point seems very popular as it has already been visited 18 times. It is easy to reach driving from Dresden through Pirna and Lohmen. From there you can pick one of the multiple approaches possible using farming roads. We parked our car less than 170 meters west of the point close to small monument figuring the confluence. From there we easily walked (under cold rain unfortunately) on flat ground to zero the point in the woods.

Continued at 51N 13E.
