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.

Falling off the sled with your best friend can be part of the fun.

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!

Winter Scenes in Germany

It has actually stopped snowing for the moment, but there is more to come. Here are a few photos I took around noon today when we drove our daughter to Steinbach.

Yes, the person in the distance is a bike rider pushing his bike along.

In Oberursel, we saw quite a few orange-vested city workers removing snow and dispersing salt.

Sledding and Skiing on the Feldberg

Back by popular demand is the answer to Where can we go sledding and skiing around here? In this case, this is from expats in and near Oberursel at the foot of the Taunus Mountains.

The state of Hessen boasts many sledding trails and the most popular ones are the hill in Falkenstein, downhill from Hohemark, Pechberg at Oberreifenberg, and at Sporthotel Erbismühle in Weilrod.

I personally prefer Oberreifenberg, but you should give the others a try too.

Oberreifenberg sledding trail

The Pechberg at Oberreifenberg has been recommended for sledding and skiing and also provides opportunities nearby for cross-country skiing and walking trails. The Pechberg is most suitable for ski beginners among the children and adults. Once you get to Waldstrasse in Oberreifenberg, you can see the little ski resort and the parking lot in Siegfriedstrasse.

There is a ski lift, which is also safe and suited for the little skiers. The sledders have their own trail.

Many families bring a little snow-picnic lunch along (hot juice or tea and sausages). There are also food vendors selling pizza and Bratwurst.

For a detailed snow update at the Pechberg (tar mountain), you can call 06081 – 442 138 for more information.

The Taunusklub lists four more skiing/sledding trails (in German) within the vicinity.
