Fountain Queen Anna-Lena I.

Anna-Lena Stenz was crowned Anna-Lena I. at a ceremony in the Stadthalle in Oberursel on Saturday, 14th April, 2018, when she took over the crown and sceptre from her predecessor, Ann-Kathrin I., making her Oberursel’s 40th fountain queen.

At her side is her father, Herbert, as the Brunnenmeister.  Both belong to the carnival club Club Geselligkeit Humor Weißkirchen 1952 e.V.

The fact that they come from Weißkirchen is particularly fitting, as this part of the town is celebrating their 1200th anniversary this year.  Their club is also 66 years old, a significant number in the carnival world where everything is counted in elevens.

Anna-Lena is 28 years old and has lived in the town since she was two years old.  She took her A-Levels at Oberursel’s Grammar School and went on to study German and Religion at University in Frankfurt.  She now works at the Hochtaunusschule in Oberursel.

In 2001 she was the town’s children’s princess during the carnival season, and spend her childhood dancing in the various carnival dance troupes.
