Bad Homburger Sommer

The “Bad Homburger Sommer” takes place each summer in Bad Homburg over the space of two weeks. This year it starts on 30th June and finishes with a big firework display on 15th July.

There are open-air film showings, concerts in the park, games and participation-theatres for children and even a flea market.

Most of the events are free to the public as they are sponsored by local businesses, although there are a few ticketed events – but even they have reasonable prices.

Here are some of the highlights:

  • Nachttheater im Schloss – Die drei Musketiere
  • Hexenzauber in Ober-Erlenbach
  • Sommernachtsball (kostenpflichtig)
  • Flohmarkt im Kurpark
  • Kinder-Lieder-Mitmach-Theater “Pitsch, Patsch, Pinguin”
  • Open Air Kino: Charlie und die Schokoladenfabrik
  • Kurpark in Flammen

Oberurseler Brunnenfest

This weekend is Brunnenfest in Oberursel (“fountain festival”). It covers most of the inner town from the market place to the fairground near the Portstraße. There are merry-go-rounds, fairground-type games and lots of places to eat and drink.

There are also special events, such as the “Childrens Mile” (Kindermeile), which took place on Saturday afternoon. These are games especially for children, all in one road. In the evening there is live music from various different bands.

What struck me was that whilst the price of the rides and the food was normally quite reasonable, the drinks were expensive. A coke cost 3,30EUR plus 2EUR deposit for the glass!

We will be talking more about this tomorrow in The Monday Podcast.
