23-Aug-2019 -- From Valkenburg we drove to Gangelt. Again the weather was sunny. In Gangelt we followed streetsigns with "Mercatorpunkt". We parked the car at Lindenstrasse and walked within 5 minutes to this landmark which was dedicated to Gerhard Mercator. Then we started to walk to the confluence point, which was situated in a fenced meadow with two horses. We decided not to climb over the fence and take pictures. Biketrail 55 is near the confluence point.
