Inside the historic town hall

The “Ratsherrensaal” inside Oberursel’s historic town hall at the market place is a view that not many people get to see.  It is generally only open to the public twice a year when new residents are given a tour of the town.  Otherwise it is only available for special events and can be hired for wedding ceremonies.

A record number of visitors on the last day of the steam trains

The members of the steam train club (Dampfbahnclub Taunus) in the Mainstraße were not expecting quite so many visitors to turn up last Sunday, 12th October, 2014.  After all, a lot of the tracks had already been lifted along with the bridge, turntable and model railway.  But on the other hand it was the last chance to take a ride behind one of the miniature steam trains, before the area is cleared to make way for a new school building.

In total there were around 900 adults and 350 children at the last day of the saison, known as the “Abdampfen”, and for the first time in the history of the railway they had to go out during the day and stock up on charcoal for the barbeque.

The visitors had to wait more patiently than usual, with waiting times of up to 15 minutes not unusual despite them having 4 trains running. [Read more…]
