#1: Location of the confluence

(visited by Ole Henseler)

22-Jun-2009 -- Coming from 51N-07E, this was the second confluence that day. This very western part of Germany is close to the border to Belgium and the Netherlands. I found the small village of Gangelt and drove towards the location where they have placed a small sculpture explaining the confluence and showing names of cities on the same longitude and altitude, quite nice!

The sculpture is some hundred meters away from the confluence which I found to be on a fenced meadow. I found my way through the fence and as no horses or cows where there, I entered the location to find the zeros and to take the pictures. Having done that, I continued my way to 51N-05E in Belgium.
