It’s carnival time!

After a break of two years the carnival season has returned to many parts of Germany.

Last Saturday Oberursel’s carnival Princess Fiona I. joined forces with the Kinderprinzenpaar (Julius I. & Annabel I.) to take over control of the town hall until Ash Wednesday.

The highlight of their time in office will be the procession on Sunday (19th February at 2.11pm) in which a record number of 195 floats, bands and other groups on foot will be taking part.
