#1: looking from the real confluence to the monument (small white point near the wood on the left side)

(visited by Martin Mayrhofer, Peter Ludwig, Stefan and Christoph Mayrhofer and Max Ludwig)

06-May-2001 -- After many attempts we tried to find this point on May, 6th. Weather always was bad when we wanted to go or we just were busy.

We were not sure if it is easy possible to go to the point, it's somewhat hilly there. Going on a country road we where not sure where to cross the little Erlauf creek. But when we came close we just saw a small road with a bridge. Where it left the main road it had a sign: 'Meridian stone'. The point is located on a hiking trail named after it and they made a small monument. But they located it not at the real spot, they just took a nice place 200m further (thinking that nobody will mention it, GPS was not so well known back in 1987).

Anyway, we will come back for hiking the whole trail, as it is a nice landscape and many things to look at.
