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”.
