Pumpkin Carving at the Maize Maze

Pumpkin - ©Can Stock Photo Inc. / NitrThe Maislabyrinth – a maze made out of maize – will be holding a Pumkin Festival with pumkin carving for children on Sunday, 18th September 2011.

The maze itself from 11am until dusk. Entry costs €2.50 for adults, €2 for children aged 10 to 16 and €1.50 for children aged 4 to 9.

To get there by car, travel to the edge of Weißkirchen on the road to Steinbach. There is a track off the road near the yellow “Oberursel Stadtteil Weißkirchen” sign leading towards Frankfurt (ie. left if you have just driving through Weißkirchen, right if you are coming from Steinbach). The maze is about 200m along this track.

If you are coming by train, the nearest station “Weißkirchen-Steinbach” is on the S5 line between Frankfurt and Bad Homburg.

    That’s very interesting. When I grew up in Stierstadt there were no corn mazes or pumpkins around. American culture definately seeped into German culture. Is Halloween popular in Germany too these days?

    • I think the American culture been in this area for some time, but since the US forces withdrew from Camp King I think that the local ex-pats have taken the culture more into the community rather than being amongst themselves.
