Alfred-Delp-Fountain finally inaugurated

It was two years later than planned, but on Saturday, 11th June, 2022, Fountain Queen Verena I. was finally able to officially inaugurate her fountain at the Alfred-Delp-Haus in Oberursel.

The fountain, which is in the middle of the complex, has step-free access, allowing the residents with mobility problems a chance to cool off in the summer or just sit on one of the stones and enjoy the sunshine.

Brunnenkönigin Verena I. and Brunnenmeister Andreas inaugurate the Alfred-Delp-Fountain in Oberursel on Saturday, 11th June, 2022.

Designed by architects Axel and Maria Werner-Niemetz, the fountain was actually installed in 2014 when the courtyard was being refurbished. It is destined to become a unique fountain in Oberursel in another way as well: the plaque on the stone shows the current year, 2022, even though the accompanying badges and porcelain shows 2020, the year Verena started her tenure as Fountain Queen.
