Truly German – Episode 03 – 4th September 2009

Truly German is a new podcast that talks about the news in Germany.  Sometimes this will by national news, maybe political, but we will also be covering some local topics.

We want to have some fun at the same time, so part of the podcast is our Länderquiz – in which my contestant has to guess in which Bundesland three different news stories took place in.

This week the topics are:

  1. New and discontinued traffic signs
  2. Twitter and election results
  3. Oberursel barrel organ festival

The quiz covers the following stories:

  1. Sehler-Quetschefest (plum festival)
  2. Störtebecker-Festspielen
  3. Bahnhof des Jahres (Station of the year)

Listen to the episode and tell us what you think about the stories covered:

Frankfurt-Eschborn Cityloop

Each year on 1st May (Maifeiertag) the main road out of Oberursel is closed off for a cycle race which this year was re-named as the “Frankfurt-Eschborn Cityloop”.  This means that for anything up to 2 hours we are unable to get out of our road.  Even the U-Bahn stops running!

The answer, of course, is to either get out early or to stay and watch the race – and the drivers arguing with the police that they need to go somewhere.

My daughter and I opted for the 2nd option this year.  To find out more, listen to the podcast:

Oberursel Christmas Market

This week the Monday Podcast visited the Christmas Market (Weihnachtsmarkt) in Oberursel.  In comparison to last year, there was a lot more to see and better weather as well.

We spent the afternoon there, and the longer we stayed, the more people there were.  It was very busy in the evening.
