#1: Approaching the confluence

(visited by Thomas Caspers)

25-Mar-2004 -- I planned to visit the confluence point N51 E007 today at sunset (18.51 local time). First I took the S6 train from Cologne to Duesseldorf and got off at Cologne-Stammheim. From there I followed the B8 road northwards for exactly 1 km. Already close to the confluence point, I turned right entering the street Gruener Kuhweg. I crossed the railroad tracks on a bridge and reached N51 E007 exactly at 18.51 local time. The sun had just set. However there was still enough light to take some pictures. Looking north you can see the floodlight of a soccer ground, and in the west the railroad tracks are quite close (about 30 meters) to the confluence point.
