Today's location is in the Dresdner Heide forest at Dresden.
Country: Germany; state: Sachsen (Saxony, EU:DE:SN); district: Dresden; Ortsamt: Loschwitz; Stadtteil: Dresdner Heide
Weather (07:30): fresh, 2°C or less (thermometer still falling when I left), the day got very sunny later
How nice, a Saturday hashpoint in Dresden and nice weather. The only problem was that I had to work all day. After work it would be dark, so I decided to visit the hashpoint before work. Sunrise would even be around the time I planned to be at the spot. I got up one hour earlier than usual and at 7 a.m. I started the expedition. I cycled along Fetscherstraße and across the Waldschlösschenbrücke, then along Bauzner Straße until I was at the Lingnerschloss (Lingner Palace, one of the three famous Elbe Palaces). There the track that led to the hashpoint started. I cycled along a small dirt track, not noticing that the easier track towards the hashpoint had already branched off. The track followed the Gutebornbach creek and soon I was near the hashpoint. Sunrise was already 5 minutes past when I found the spot, but in the forest there was little difference. I took pictures, built a marker and then I quickly cycled along the easier forest track to the Lingnerschloss. On my way back I bought bread rolls for breakfast, then I continued to work where I arrived right on time.
