Rally for Europe at the Epinay-Platz

It was at Easter 1967, 50 years ago, that the Epinay-Platz in Oberursel officially received its name.  The town twinning between Oberursel and Epinay-sur-Seine in France was only three years old at the time.

This event will be remembered on Saturday, 25th March, 2017 when a rally will be held on the square between 11.30am and 1pm under the title “Kundgebung für Europa”.

Epinay was the first town that Oberursel twinned with, and the twinning itself is still going strong.  But considering recent events and the current discussions taking place on the future of Europe it was been decided not to celebrate with a festival, but with a rally, with speeches, stalls and music.
