Today's location is in a small birch forest next to the Niedercrinitz picnic stop along the Autobahn A72 near Zwickau.

Country: Germany; state: Sachsen (Saxony, EU:DE:SN); district: Zwickau; municipality: Wilkau-Haßlau

Weather: clouded, 0-2 °C



I had been in Würzburg since Wednesday, both for a conference (Thursday till Saturday) and to meet friends. For the return trip to Dresden I noticed that the hashpoint was right next to the Autobahn. At first I thought about doing the usual "leave Autobahn at exit N, go to hashpoint, get back on the Autobahn at exit N+1" routine but then I thought "why all that detour instead of a short walk?". After an uneventful 2.5 hours of driving I stopped at the picnic stop. Then I walked along the fence that runs all along the Autobahn until I reached on of the doors that are in that fence. I hadn't been sure if those doors were usually locked but when I reached one I wasn't, so they are only for keeping out animals (mostly deer) as I presumed, not for keeping in humans. I walked over to the underpass and on the other side of the Autobahn entered the small birch forest.

The hashpoint was found quickly:

I quickly took pictures while my hands became colder and colder in the frosty air, then walked back to the car in order for another 1.5 hours of driving.

under the bridge there was this satanist-themed graffiti...
