The hash is in an urban area near Heidelberg Main Station.



  • I was dropping off my girlfriend at the train station and decided to have a look at today's geohash on my phone. When I realized that it was within 10 minutes walking distance, I obviously could not resist.
  • Go there on my bull in the morning. DODO (talk)

First of all, I needed to get a parking ticket. Originally I intended to drive away right after dropping her off, but with this parking space known for rigorous fines within seconds of parking without a ticket, I had no choice but to buy one.

The hash location itself was easy to find, just a few streets away from the station. The location was reachable from an inner courtyard of a building block.

Now comes the point where I'm not sure whether I can count this as reached. I managed to get a screenshot with green numbers, showing less than three meters distance to the hash. However, the precise location was inside the building. I'm letting it count for now, but if you think different please feel free to edit. Unfortunately I did not see a good a way to leave a mark (didn't have anything to write on me).


As yesterdays hashpoint seems unreachable I decided to try the one today, although this one also looks posted. The lady had to go to work at 7:15 and so I started riding at 8:15 and reached the location in 1 1/2 hours. It seems to be a cultural center, so I walked into the parking lot. I found many artist's workshops but they were all closed and looked empty (to early for artists?). I walked into the most remote corner and got a screenshot with green numbers but this is also due to the bad gps-reception near the buildings. I wouldn't have called this a success usually as the real hp seems to be inside the building. But when I came home, I found that lord vetinari has been there less than an hour before me and made it a success with concerns. And so I was tempted to call it a success either. But then I realized that LV was much closer to the hashpoint than me, and as I still was more than 10m away from our aim, I resign for number 13 in my posted career.

After that I continued my way to Mannheim, where I bought a last christmas gift. Although I zigzagged through the city I paid attention not to cross my way on the way to the station (you must not believe the part inside the station where reception was bad and location was jumping around wildly). I returned at home at high noon.

LV: So sorry that we missed each other again, but even if we would have been there at the same time I doubt that we would have met as we were on different sides of the building. So close :-(
