With fresh snow on the ground and in some places still falling perhaps going shopping in Oberursel by bicycle was not the most pressing topic for many people last Sunday when the ADFC held their “Tag des Fahrrads” in the Stadthalle.

Over 400 people attended the event – significantly down on the 1,000 that had visited the previous year.

A new brochure for new residents

Anyone arriving in Oberursel registering at the town hall will from today receive a copy of the new edition of the “Bürgerbroschüre”.

The brochure contains information about the town itself such as its history, facts and figures, and basic information on the town’s administration.  But it also contains details of local shops and businesses, tourist attractions, clubs, school, churches and doctors.  Even a list of playgrounds.  In fact, probably most of the information that anyone moving to the town is likely to need in their first weeks or months here.

There is even a street map with a list of emergency phone numbers inside the back cover. [Read more…]
