Today's location: [Köln, Germany]

The Köln/Aachen/Eifel graticule is at latitude 50, longitude 6. The two cities of Köln (Cologne) and Aachen give the north-eastern and north-western corners of the graticule, which consists in large parts of the Eifel lower mountain range, with the eastern quarter being the German-speaking Community of Belgium. In the south, the graticule ends right to the north of Wittlich and Bitburg; its south-western corner lies already within the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The Netherlands are also touched by this graticule. Except for points in the surface mining areas near Aachen, prohibited areas of the Eifel National Park, and some reservoirs, most areas within this graticule should be accessible.
