Restaurant at the Old Market Square in Oberursel

This historical postcard dates back to 1898, when the corner building at the Marktplatz (market square) used to be ‘Droeser’s Felsenkeller’, a restaurant with garden service.

On 12 October 1895, Mr. Adam J. H. Droeser opened the Felsenkeller (rock wall cellar) Restaurant.

The address was am Marktplatz 1, which houses the Vordertaunusmuseum (Anterior Taunus Museum) today.

Below is a photo of the same location, taken on 30 January 2019.

Sledding at the Mountain Lodge Hill at Camp King Oberursel

The other day, when we had loads of snow right after Christmas, I knew I would find people sledding down the Mountain Lodge hill.

Most of the snow has gone by now, but there is more in the forecast.

And Happy New Year to all my readers out there!

It is quite astonishing to have young students ask me what a mailbox is. This only happens when they realize I am not referring to their e-mail box. In our neighborhood, there are a couple of bright and yellow boxes, which they pass by every day.

Deutsche Post/ post horn

Not having any need to post letters via the old-fashioned way of communicating, their perception has become immune to this big yellow box sitting there near the sidewalk.

Alone talking about my mail box at home causes confusion. You know, the one which receives paper bills, paper junk mail,  paper ads, and even requires a manual key to open it. A few young expats even claim their moms do not even have the key for it as it is the dad’s job to clear it out once a month. Paying bills can wait, I’d suppose. [Read more…]
