26-Apr-2013 -- Visiting family in the Netherlands and Germany provided a good opportunity to visit a few confluence points: 52N 5E, 52N 8E and 52N 10E (This CP).

Together with family we drove off in the morning to visit the Rammelsberg ore mine (near Goslar), making a detour to this confluence point. The (dirt) road to the CP is not accessible for cars, so we parked at N 52° 00.127 E009° 59.714, walking the last 550 m over the dirt-road and along the edge of the forest.

The confluence is located in a field with just sprouting crops - we think some cereal; from the edge of the forest there was a tractor track running some 15 m west of the confluence point, which we used to get as close as possible without treading on the crop. The last 15 m to get to the exact point we tiptoed between the young cereal.

The CP is located in a hilly area, mostly used as agricultural ground dotted with a few (smaller) forests and some higher hills in the distance (to the North). Weather was great on this sunny spring day, a pleasant 25°C in the sun.

After taking the required pictures and writing down the visit information, we also visited the nearby marker (at N 51° 59.903 E009° 59.920). Hereafter we continued our journey and spent the rest of the afternoon exploring the Rammelsberg mine near the town of Goslar in the Harz area.
