50 Years of Twinning – Today in Oberursel

Today (Saturday, 7th June, 2014) sees events taking place in Oberursel to mark the 50th anniversary of the town twinning with Epinay-sur-Seine in France.

The day will begin at 10am with a “honey breakfast” in the Adenauerallee, followed by the inauguration of a “Butineur” – a bee-hive, also in the Adenaueralle, which has a glass front to it to allow passers-by to see the bees at work.  A similar bee-hive was installed last month in Epinay-sur-Seine, and this is seen as a “airlift” connection between the two towns.

At 12.15 a U-Bahn train will make its way out of the refuge siding and enter Oberursel’s station, where it will be officially named “Epinay-sur-Seine – 50 Jahre Partnerschaft mit Oberursel (Taunus)”.

In the afternoon events move to the Epinay-Platz where at 4pm a birthday cake will be jointly cut by Oberursel’s Mayor Hans-Georg Brum and Epinay’s Deputy Mayor Patrice Konieczny. [Read more…]
