Each year in Oberursel, an event called “Fischerstechen” takes place on one of the local lakes, the “Maasgrundweiher”. Teams compete to push each other off the end of the boat an into the lake, making it a sort of jousting competition but with boats.

My article about the event this year is on the front page of the Oberurseler Woche. Click here to read it (in German).
