On a meadow in Rimbach.
- 2010-08-10: In Rimbach (Odenwald), probably on a meadow. I might go there and take a kite with me. --ilpadre 17:16, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
- I will probably be there as well. --Fivetonsofflax 22:32, 9 August 2010 (UTC); Will be at Rimbach Station at 15:11. Hope to see you at the hashpoint. --Fivetonsofflax 11:29, 10 August 2010 (UTC)
Getting to the coordinates was easy. I took a train to Weinheim, there I got into the Weschnitztalbahn (I used it for the first time), which runs through a few tunnels and over some bridges and is certainly one of the more beautiful railway lines I've travelled in that region.
In Rimbach, I quickly found the coordinates after a 2 km walk through residential roads and a slight detour to partly follow a hiking trail. The sky was clear and I had sunshine all the time, but it came at the price of absolutely no wind at all, so I struggled half an hour to fly a kite at the coordinates and eventually gave up, getting on my way back to the station (this time on a more direct way). I left Rimbach at 14:43 and returned to Heidelberg at 15:39. I had plans later that evening, so I wanted to be back in Heidelberg before 16:00 - sorry, Fivetonsofflax!
Heidelberg station - they plan to start building a south entrance before the end of the year (excellent candidate for a revisit!).
Fun and easy expedition. I went there pretty much the same way as Ilpadre, with the exception that I didn't return to Rimbach after having reached the hashpoint but walked to the station of Zotzenbach. Pleasant landscape, perfect weather, lots of apple trees and blackberries. Had cookies at hashpoint.
