Ann-Kathrin I. is the new Fountain Queen

Oberursel’s new Fountain Queen (Brunnenkönigin) is Ann-Kathrin I., who was crowned along with her Brunnenmeister Rainer at a ceremony in Oberursel’s Stadthalle on 1st April, 2017.

Ann-Kathrin I., who normally goes by the name of Ann-Katrin Kofler, is 24 years old and lives in Oberstedten and works as a surveyor.  Rainer Böhrig is 64 years old and a retired post office official.

The fact that she comes from Oberstedten is particularly relevant this year, as that part of the town is celebrating the 1200th anniversary of the first time the place was named, then called “Stetine”.

Any whilst Ann-Kathrin is obviously looking forward to the Fountain Festival (Brunnenfest) in June, this year also coincides with 20th anniversary of her parents’ garden centre – Hof Kofler.

The “Hof” will be celebrating on Saturday, 6th May, 2017 from 10am to 6pm and can be found at Mariannenweg 20 (although Satnav users should use “Friedrichstraße” as their destination).
