In the parking lot of an Aldi supermarket in Lüneburg, Lower Saxony, only half a kilometer from the train station.
Also, again with the disparity between Google Earth/OSM and what my GPS tells me! The actual hash and the projected hash were about 100 meters apart. Will have to investigate...
- mtu and his girlfriend
The hash is easily reached from Hamburg by going to Lüneburg by train and walking no more than ten minutes. As it happened, I had been within ~500 meters of the hash earlier that day (while on a northbound train passing by), and even more luckily, I had other important business in Lüneburg. My girlfriend got off from university early, so I decided to drag her along!
Getting to the hash was easy enough. After attending to my other business, we had a coffee, did some shopping and headed for the eastern side of town to get to the hashpoint. Closing in, it looked like we might have to settle for a No Trespassing consolation prize, but then the Aldi supermarket parking lot opened up before us, and we stood quietly on the corner of the building and did the geohasher's thing.
On the way back, mtu's girlfriend got to play with the GPS, and was instantly amazed and thrilled at its workings. In a curious reversal of roles, it was mtu who had to steer her around lamp and sign poles as she looked at the GPS' display and giggled while walking.
