Taunabad opening party on 4th July

Saturday, 4th July, 2015 sees the official opening of the new TaunaBad take place in Oberursel with a big party in the grounds outside.

Hit Radio FFH’s presenter Julia Nestle will be be bringing the radio tour to the pool and there will be outdoor activities on offer between 2pm and 6pm.  If the weather turns bad then the party will move indoors).

To speed up and simplify entry to the pool there will not be any “Kurzzeittickets” (tickets for a limited number of hours) on sale.  Day tickets and family tickets can be purchased in advanced in the foyer of the pool building.

As a large number of visitors are expected, the car park will probably fill up quickly.  Visitors can also use the car park belonging to Fresenius round the corner in the Borkenberg free of charge.

Due to another event taking place in the morning, the outdoor pool will not be open on Saturday until 12.30pm, but will stay open until 8pm.  The indoor pool will be open between 2pm and 9pm.  It will be possible to enter the grounds through the main building and via the entrance at the other end of the car park.

Oberursel’s outdoor swimming pool re-opens

Oberursel’s outdoor swimming pool (Freibad) re-opened on Wednesday morning (4th June, 2014) after a break of almost two years.  With the indoor pool still not completed, some compromises have had to be made, such as temporary toilets and food stalls.  But the outdoor changing rooms are a permanent feature and will supplement the indoor ones once they open.

From the town council: Swimming, Sewage, the Station, and the Saga of the Bärenkreuzung

The last meeting of the town council in Oberursel was a long, drawn out affair, which even prompted Mayor Hans-Georg Brum to refer to part of the debate as a “Gebetsmühle” – literally a “prayer wheel”, ie. a discussion that was taking a long time and going round in circles.

It was also the point in the council year for treasurer Thorsten Schorr to make his annual budget speech, the debate on which was deferred to a later date after the Bürgerversammlung about the proposed savings.

Part of that budget may have played a role in the OBG asking what the pre-requisites are for town employees taking on committee roles in charities such as the Förderverein Taunabad during their work time and whether this was not something that the town was doing voluntarily and hence should possibly be reduced or stopped altogether under the budget constraints.

Richtfest – topping out the new swimming pool

Work stopped on the new swimming pool for a few hours last Wednesday afternoon (21st August, 2013) when the “Richtfest” – the topping-out ceremony – took place in the shell of the building.

Those present included  representatives from the town’s political parties, even those who had opposed the way the building is being financed, as well as the architect Dipl.-Ing. Detlef Sacker, the head of the company that will run the pool, Jürgen Funke, and Dr. Werner Freitag, president of the swimmers’ association in Hessen.  Hans Leimeister represented the local district council.

Mayor Hans-Georg Brum commented that it the building was not only the largest project that the town had ever undertaken, but it was also the one that had been discussed the most. [Read more…]

Introducing the Taunabad and its supporters

Yesterday (Thursday, 15th August, 2013) the brand name for the new swimming pool in Oberursel was revealed: Taunabad.

How intentional the release was may well be unknown, or perhaps some of those from Oberursel’s town hall attending the press conference were just surprised at the fact that the name had not leaked out.

The real news of the day was the announcement  of the Förderverein Taunabad – a charity that has been founded to support the swimming pool. [Read more…]
