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.

Mickey Mouse and Friends in Weißkirchen

Last Saturday (18th July, 2015) saw the start of a new season of the Maize Maze in Weißkirchen.  For the 13th time the Bickert family have created a labyrinth in their maize field where visitors not only have to find the right path, but also solve clues to put together a word that allows them to take part in the prize draw at the end of the summer.  This year the maze has taken on the silhouettes of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.

Fountain Queen Christina II. attended the official opening with her Brunnenmeister Jürgen and presented Richard Bickert with her Bembel, before opening the maze by cutting down the last maize plants in the entrance. [Read more…]
