This weekend is Brunnenfest

This weekend sees one of the largest festivals in Oberursel take place – the fountain festival or Brunnenfest.

The event kicks off on Friday evening at 5.30pm with  an open-air church service at the Marktplatz followed by the official opening with Fountain Queen Ann-Kathrin I.

Other highlights include the inauguration of the new “Äppelpark” Fountain on Saturday morning in Oberstedten (opposite the new Rewe)  at 11am and the 5, 10 and 21.1km festival runs on Sunday morning at 10am.

For children up to the age of 10 the Kindermeile will be in the Obere Hainstraße on Saturday between 3pm and 6pm and the annual duck race on the Urselbach will be held on Sunday at 3pm with tickets being sold on Saturday in the Weidengasse.

Saturday evening there will also be a talent show for the town’s youth to show what they can do from 5pm until 7pm.  The show is aptly named “Kickfactor: … and what can you do?”

A children’s disco with face painting is being held in the Ackergasse on Sunday starting at 2pm.

The fun fair is in its usual place on the Bleiche car park as is the craft market in front of the town hall, with the closing fireworks taking place at 10.30pm on Monday evening. [Read More…]

Oberursel’s outdoor pool is 80 years old

Oberursel’s outdoor pool, the “Freibad”, was opened 80 years ago in June 1937.  Originally called the “Schwimm-, Licht- und Luftbad”, the buildung work took three years to complete.  But it was a long way from the original concept in 1862 until the town made the funds available in 1928 and approved for the water to be taken from the town’s fountains.  Before the swimming pool was built, the site was a gravel pit.

The birthday party is set to take place on Whitmonday, 5th June, 2017. [Read More…]
