Sledding on the Mountain Lodge Hill in Oberursel, Germany

The last time we saw children sledding on the Mountain Lodge Hill in Oberursel must have been ten years ago.

If you are new the area, and need directions: This hill is in the housing area called Camp King, behind the EDEKA supermarket on Hohemarkstrasse, and in fairly close proximity to Frankfurt International School (FIS).

New Year’s Eve 2020 in Germany

“Here’s to a bright New Year and a fond farewell to the old; here’s to the things that are yet to come, and to the memories that we hold.”

Wishing all my readers a Happy New Year!

The Mountain Lodge, Oberursel, in Autumn Light

A while back I had posted about a possible trimming or chopping of the big tree in front of the Mountain Lodge.

This was not to be as the attendance of 10 workers for two full working days was just meant for training.

The autumn light on this particular day in late November was spectacular.

Buying a Christmas Tree from a Vendor near the Feldberg, Taunus

This past weekend, we drove up towards the Feldberg Mountain. Our usual vendor was closed, but there is always another one to choose from.

Heading towards the Feldberg, Taunus

I’m not picky about which tree to choose, but my husband is. I usually say yes to each one he picks up, as long as it isn’t so tall. Over the years, he has come down in size (the tree, that is), and our tree this year is ‘only’ 180-210cm (5’9″ – 6’9″) in height.

The sign in the hut says, ‘Who cut one?’ indicating tree theft. We did not mention its other meaning in American slang. 🙂

Who cut one?

The vendor lady first approached me to offer assistance, but I pointed to my husband right away as the sole buyer.

Soon after, she was me telling about family feuds, tears, arguments, screaming, and whatever else might happen when families try to decide on a tree. She said, she had seen it all.

Here we are walking away with our 2020 Christmas tree.

The Mountain Lodge at Camp King and Current Landscaping

It was a typical foggy November sight, when I passed by the Mountain Lodge this morning.

As I got closer, I noticed there were not only dog walkers abound, but also city council workers.

I counted close to 10 workers behind the red and white barrier tape.

I don’t know what is going to happen to that tree, which stands closest to the Lodge, so we shall see. I will keep you posted.
