Taunabad opening party on 4th July

Saturday, 4th July, 2015 sees the official opening of the new TaunaBad take place in Oberursel with a big party in the grounds outside.

Hit Radio FFH’s presenter Julia Nestle will be be bringing the radio tour to the pool and there will be outdoor activities on offer between 2pm and 6pm.  If the weather turns bad then the party will move indoors).

To speed up and simplify entry to the pool there will not be any “Kurzzeittickets” (tickets for a limited number of hours) on sale.  Day tickets and family tickets can be purchased in advanced in the foyer of the pool building.

As a large number of visitors are expected, the car park will probably fill up quickly.  Visitors can also use the car park belonging to Fresenius round the corner in the Borkenberg free of charge.

Due to another event taking place in the morning, the outdoor pool will not be open on Saturday until 12.30pm, but will stay open until 8pm.  The indoor pool will be open between 2pm and 9pm.  It will be possible to enter the grounds through the main building and via the entrance at the other end of the car park.

DPSG Oberursel raised money for flooded building in 72 hours

“We are heaven sent” was the motto of the German catholic youth movement (BDKJ) last weekend, among them the Scouts of the DPSG Oberursel from the St.Hedwig and St.Sebastian communities.

At 17:07 on Thursday evening they assembled with their leaders on the Feldberg to be handed their task.  For the Scouts, it was “organise a party for Sunday afternoon next to Oberursel’s station”.

They began planning straight away.  After returning to their room in the old vicarage on the Borkenberg the group became to work out what they needed to organise and what the flyers for the party should look like.  After all, they only had 72 hours to complete thhe task.

On Friday they started visiting local businesses to ask for donations for the party.  They received support from a number of bakers and shops selling soft drinks – not all of them in Oberursel. [Read more…]
