The of end Christina II.’s year as Fountain Queen

With just a few days of her reign left, Fountain Queen Christina II. and her Brunnenmeister Jürgen visited the town hall in Oberursel, where they were thanked for their work representing the town by Mayor Hans-Georg Brum and Town Treasurer Thorsten Schorr.

“It was a lovely time” commented Hans-Georg Brum, but continued that everything had to come to an end.  He was keen to highlight the difference between Christina and Jürgen, that they where completely opposite in their approach to things, but this mixture had fitted well together.

Looking back on the past year, there had been some changes to the tradition to bring it up-to-date, and both had been very active on Facebook to tell everyone what they were up to.  Both had their highlights, especially the Brunnenfest (Fountain Festival) at which the Bobbycar race had been particular fun for them, but also the merry-go-round at the Feyerey.

Over the year Christina has got used to public speaking and has grown into the role, something that she feels has changed her in a positive way.  She said that being one a member of the local “Royalty” was like being part of a large family, as many in similar roles and their families see each other regularly at different events.

Now, with her year over, she is looking forward to her wedding.
