Germany Hamburg Graticule.png

Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany and its inhabitants claim it's the greatest one. It is split between two graticules.

Contents

[edit] Graticules

Both graticules cover the independent city Hamburg as well as the "Länder" Schleswig-Holstein, Niedersachsen and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

[edit] West (latitude 53, longitude 9)

The graticule is split by the river Elbe. Except by boat or swimming you can only cross it via bridges or tunnels located in Hamburg. In the north is Schleswig-Holstein, south the river is Niedersachsen. In Niedersachsen there is the "Wildpark Lüneburger Heide", a nice national park. You can view the graticule with all Geohashes visited in Google Maps.

[edit] Planned Geohashes

2014-05-04 looks very promising. Downtown, in the university. Unfortunately, I signed up for a sunday shift and probably won't make it to the hash. :( Is anyone going there? --Hermann (talk) 09:24, 3 May 2014 (EDT)
