They started the flea market

The flea market in Oberursel was started in 1971 by Dr. Christoph Müllerleile (1st on left) als chairman of the “Jugendring”. The chair was later held by (from left to right) Wilfried Grünwald (73-74), Reinhard Cimiotti (73), ans Hans-Georg Brum (75-76 + 78).

It was the latter that moved the flea market from the Holzweg to its current location in the Adenauerallee.

They met up again at the flea market on Saturday, 16th October, 2021 for the 50th anniversary.
