15-Jul-2016 -- I had picked up a rental car in Lörrach - in the southwestern corner of Germany - for a two-day drive across Germany to Berlin (where I had a conference). Of course, I hoped to visit some new (for me) Degree Confluence Points en route. This point - in the foothills just east of the Rhine River Valley - looked easy, and appeared to be a short detour. While the visit was, indeed, quite easy, and short in distance, what I hadn’t counted on was bumper-to-bumper traffic as I drove through the city of Freiburg. So I ended up spending much more time on this point than I’d originally anticipated.
Eventually, I made it through Freiburg, and started climbing the hills to the east of the Rhine River Valley - towards the ‘Black Forest’ (Schwarzwald). Like most of the (numerous) previous visitors, I parked on the side of the road at 48.00374°N 7.99616°E, and hiked the remaining distance (less than 1 km each way) along a steep country road - passing first to the right of house number 6, then to the left of house number 6A. The point lies just off the path, shortly after it enters a patch of forest. (Fortunately there was no sign of the large banner that had been reported by some of the previous visitors.)
