#1: Approach from about 20m from the west of confluence

(visited by Paul Phillips)

21-Aug-2004 -- Having just left 47N15E I was heading for what must be the easiest confluence in Austria 47N16E.

After leaving the A2 Süd autobahn and heading towards Fürstenfeld then turn off there towards Söchau a pretty little village. Drive through this south and hopefully head towards the confluence. Very tiny roads wiggling all over the place through corn fields and tiny villages.

Watching the GPS distance it slowly ticks off the meters until I'm there! This doesn't look like what I expected from the previous visitors pictures. They must have approached from a different road. I've driven over the spot and stopped about 20m from the point.

Out of the car and wander to the point. Easy zeros and 5m accuracy from 8 satellites just in the road outside the green house.

An even easier confluence than 53N3W

Take the required pictures whilst doing this I get a few funny looks from the neighbour in the white house, then it is off home and the zoo.

Arrive home at 10:40am (533km after setting out!) after checking the pictures I notice that the green house has a sign on it announcing itself to be a seller of wines from Burgenland, had I known this I could have given them one of our wines to try. See sign and label (designed by Katharina) from our wine in pic 7.
