The Bremen graticule is at latitude 53, longitude 8. It contains most of the so-called Metropolregion Bremen/Oldenburg: the cities of Bremen, Oldenburg, Bremerhaven, Delmenhorst and Wilhelmshaven, as well as lots of farm land and water.

The northern border is at Cuxhaven and the North Sea. There's also a small (1.2% of the graticule) part of Schleswig-Holstein across river Elbe that belongs to this graticule. The islands Neuwerk, Scharhörn and Nigehörn with a total area of 4 km² (0.05% of the graticule) belong to Hamburg; Neuwerk can be reached by boat or, during low tide, on foot or by horse and cart from Cuxhaven-Duhnen.

[edit] Local Geohashers

  • Alaska is bike powered, living in Oldenburg. Will try to reach geohashes in or around Oldenburg, if not too busy (which is often the case).
  • Oliver is also bike-powered (or train-powered - NWB ftw). Living in Bremen, so might occasionally scurry over to one of the neighboring graticules if their geohash is closer.
  • pah is not really bike-powered, but definitely train-powered. I'm also living in Oldenburg. I'm usually too busy to reach many hashes, but I'll try to catch at least those that are close by.
  • Tillewolle is bike, feet and train-powered, living in Oldenburg. Never reached a hash but is looking foreward to do. Maybe the other users take me with them?
