Restaurant Zum Hirsch at the Market Square in Oberursel – Now and Then

In late September of this year, my husband and I were posing like tourists in Oberursel – with the restaurant ‘Zum Hirsch’ in the back.

The house, which later became the restaurant, was built in 1637.

We have been living in Oberursel for almost 25 years, and have seen a lot of changes. This setting though looks rather familiar, because all the original buildings are still there.

Oktoberfest Breakfast in Oberursel

As we were giving our friend from Texas a little tour through Oberursel this past weekend, I noticed this sign outside the ‘Brauhaus Oberursel’.

Where else but in Germany can you get a Marktfrühstück (market breakfast), which includes a couple of Weißwürste (Bavarian veal sausages), a Pretzel, and a 1/2 L of beer (a pint).

No, this wasn’t for us. We opted for a Bratwurst-to-go from the market square vendor instead.

Their special Oktoberfest menu runs through 13 October 2019.

Oberursel Photo Calendar 2020

As I am about to prepare a care package with local souvenirs for our daughter in Tallahassee, FL, I ran across this picturesque photo calendar.

With Oberursel being an expat town of its own kind, there are plenty of residents who come and go, including my own family. This makes it a great souvenir for anybody who has ever lived here.

I bought this calendar for € 12,95 at the newsagent Tabak Carree Rhode at Camp King, Oberursel.

A Stroll Through Oberursel Old Town

The historical part of town of Oberursel is usually referred to as the Altstadt by Germans. We had another out-of-town visitor, and a trip to the Biergarten included walking back to the parking area An der Bleiche (At the Bleaching Grounds). In the old days, women washed and sun bleached the sheets right there.

The Witches Path, Oberursel

It’s an old tradition around here that when a baby is born, the family hangs out baby clothing to announce its arrival.

 

 

Old and new can stand very close together.

We have arrived at our destination:  the parking lot An der Bleiche.

This fountain woman represents the women from long ago, who used to bring their laundry to this area – the washing and bleaching got done here.
