14-Jan-2001 -- Drove there after reading this page (confluence.org). Just looked at the online maps, fired up the GPS and went.

It was a nice day out, clear and cold. The road I followed was on the banks of the Rhine river, which was covered in people taking a Sunday stroll.

I didn't have a problem getting to the site, just followed the general directions the GPS told me. I had some difficulty with my memory, when it got to the streets in this town, I couldn't remember the online map. Finally I drove within 100 meters, so I got out and walked. According to my GPS I got as close as 23 meters, but the actual point is in the back yard of this house, or one around the corner.
