New signs for Oberursel’s town centre were unveiled in September, to help visitors to the town find their way around better.

The signs show the way to the U-Bahn stations, the car parks and public buildings.  The are colour-coded so that places in the old town (“Altstadt”) are anthracite (dark grey) whereas others are blue.

Another new addition is the “Shopping Lady” (inset in the photo), an icon showing the way to the main shopping area and guiding visitors around it.

The photo shows the mayor of Oberursel Hans-Georg Brum and Citymanager Wolfgang Bräutigam with one of the new signs.
