Today's location is in Schifferstadt, on Am Schulzentrum street, about 500 m from the south train station.

Country: Germany; state: Rheinland-Pfalz (Rhineland-Palatinate, EU:DE:RP); district: Rhein-Pfalz-Kreis

Weather (16:00): warm and sunny, some clouds



I was going from Würzburg to my parents near Heidelberg anyway and this hashpoint was not far from the train station, so I just bought a daypass instead of a single ticket and made a detour.

I started in Würzburg at 12:37 and after changing trains twice (in Osterburken and Schifferstadt) (and after waiting for the landscape to pass by for hours) I arrived at Schifferstadt south train station 3 minutes late, at 15:51. The footwalk to the hashpoint was simple and I found the spot about 3 minutes before meet-up time. Nobody else was there. I took some pictures of my surroundings and waited for 4 pm. I heard a churchbell ring 4 pm only a few seconds after my watch had shown 16:00:00. Then I walked back to the train station and went to my parents' place.

I went 194.5 + ~28,5 = ~223 km by train. From Würzburg to the hashpoint that were 120.8 miles.
