Mickey Mouse and Friends in Weißkirchen

Last Saturday (18th July, 2015) saw the start of a new season of the Maize Maze in Weißkirchen.  For the 13th time the Bickert family have created a labyrinth in their maize field where visitors not only have to find the right path, but also solve clues to put together a word that allows them to take part in the prize draw at the end of the summer.  This year the maze has taken on the silhouettes of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.

Fountain Queen Christina II. attended the official opening with her Brunnenmeister Jürgen and presented Richard Bickert with her Bembel, before opening the maze by cutting down the last maize plants in the entrance. [Read more…]

Indoor pool to close for 5 weeks – outdoor pool will remain open

The Stadtwerke Oberursel have informed us that the indoor swimming pool at the TaunaBad will be closed from Monday, 27th July, 2015 for around five weeks.  This is to allow for the annual maintenance to take place and to remedy some of the defects left from when the pool was built.  This cannot be done whilst the pool is in use.

The Foyer and changing room area will be closed for around one week to allow them to be deep cleaned.  Visitors to the outdoor pool can either use the ticket machines next to the building or the side entrance at the end of the car park in the Clara-Schumann-Straße.  There are changing rooms available at the outdoor pool.
