25-Jul-2013 -- Continued from 53N 13E

Today was my last day in Germany before returning my rental car, so I decided to spend it by visiting 3 remaining confluence points to the Southwest and South of Berlin.

This confluence point was quite easy to visit, as a paved road passes just 100 meters away. This remaining 100 meters, however, was quite interesting, as I had to cross first an area of long grass, then an old set of railroad tracks, then a couple of (fortunately bone dry) ditches, a couple of chicken-wire fences, and a patch of thick, thorny vegetation. (It was clear that the railroad had not been used recently, because the tracks were all rusty, with no sign of recent wear.)

The confluence point itself lies just within a wheat field. Fortunately the point lay directly on a track left by farm equipment, so I was able to get 'all zeros' without disturbing the farmer's crop.
