Regional market returns to Oberursel

The “Altstadtmarkt” which focuses local products and is this year a mixture of stalls serving food and drink along with handicraft stand returned to the market square in Oberursel last Saturday.

The “Orschel-Hase”, or “Hasi” as he is sometimes known, was carved out of a single piece of oak along with his pedestal in 2022 to replace a similar sculpture that stood on the same spot between 1997 and 2022. The original went missing during the Covid lockdown in 2020.

It is located along the “Kaiserin-Friedrich-Weg”, near the “Emminghaushütte” to the west of Oberursel.
