On some fallow land next to Schifferstadt.
Visit the place on my way to the office.
Just made the 10 KM detour on my way to work this mornig. Although I arrived some minutes past eigth, the place was very crowdy. There's a big school next to the place where I left my car and obviously school hasn't started yet. Google maps shows some sort of a path (or at least a track) from the school leading immediatly to the hashpoint, but when I walked along the school everything I found was dense scrub of blackberries. So I tried another approach, walking back to the car and taking the next path in direction of the hash. But 150 m later, I just found the same blackberry scrub. Alas, a third approach: walking all the way to the main road, then walking along the main road and enter the field from the western side.
After another KM of walking I came up to 150 m to the point, and was really lucky: a small path leading just in the right direction. I followed it and just 10m before it disappeares in the well known scrub I reached my aim. It was just next to a sheep run and so I shared my success with some curious sheep. I took some photos and headed back to my car and continued my way to the office.
All in all, 10 KM detour by car and 2,3 KM of walking.
