Autos in der Allee

This weekend (Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th April, 2015) sees the annual “Autos in der Allee” event take place in Oberursel, with the Adenauerallee turned into an exhibition ground for cars.  The event, which is taking place for the 18th time, is considered to be one of the largest car shows in the region outside of Frankfurt.

170 new cars will be on show in the Adenauerallee and Liebfrauenstraße alone, with caravans and mobile homes on the corner between them.
