Pizzeria at U-Bahn Kupferhammerweg near Camp King Oberursel

Whenever I do some research about Camp King, I inevitably stumble across comments mentioning the pizzeria on Hohemarkstrasse, which is across from the U-Bahn station Kuperhammerweg, close to the former military post Camp King. Also readers of this blog do occasionally mention the pizzeria, such as L.L.H. when she stated “I was wondering, is there still the Pizza shop (as you go out what was the front gate to the left)”.

Yes, the pizzeria is still there. When we moved here in 1995, it was run by two elderly Italian men. A few years later, another Italian family took over and has been running it since then.

We are regulars at this restaurant and one of our daughter’s first words was “Toni! Toni!” when she wanted their Rigatoni dish. That was a long time ago…

Anyway, here are some photos I took while walking from Camp King down Hohemarkstrasse to the pizzeria Del Golfo.

There is construction on the other side, a new housing development called Am Urselbach is in the making. At this corner, there used to be the gate.

The U-Bahn station Kupferhammerweg was redone a number of years back.

Also the pizzeria building got a new face – the facade was repainted several years ago.

The pizzeria does good business with very good food, reasonable prices, and friendly service.

My next research will have me locate the bakery the reader L.L.H had mentioned, “also at the stop for the Ubahn there was a bakery that had some of the best breads and coffee. Would buy my coffee there for home use and have it fresh ground.”

Important Hessentag Information

The school has just forwarded this useful information regarding the Hessentag, the traffic and transportation situation in the town of Oberursel, and a few highlights of the event.
Even though the content is related in some parts only to FIS, this information might also benefit all other English speakers in our area.

1. Traffic closures
During Hessentag, areas of Oberursel have been broken down into zones. Depending on the zone, traffic is either fully or partially prohibited. The red zones will only be accessible by car between 8 – 20 June from 6:00 – 9:30 in the morning. Please note that the red zone is closed off three days longer than the duration of the event!

The other colored zones are accessible from 10-19 June only with a special permit, which is generally only available to residents of that area.  This means that parents from outside of Oberursel will not be able to drive through the center of Oberursel to get to school.  For a map of the various zones, click here.

2. Access to FIS

FIS will be accessible via the Hohemark Strasse between the Lahn Strasse and B455 exit Hohemark.
• Please be aware that there will be increased traffic, congestion and a longer driving time to get to school from 9-20 June.
• The school parking lots of the Primary School, including the one across the street, as well as on the Waldlust campus will be completely closed after school on Friday, 17 June until Monday morning, 20 June, for the Hessentag parade.
3. Public transportation
We encourage all visitors to the town center to use public transportation, which will take one to the edge of the Altstadt.  All other traffic within the Altstadt is restricted to pedestrians.

• The U-Bahn and S-Bahn will be running every 15 minutes for the duration of Hessentag. The best U-Bahn access to the center of town is the stop “Oberursel Altstadt”.
• The bus lines 41 and 42 will not be able to drive through town as usual and will thus be split into separate routes above and below the closed off areas. They will travel on a 30-minute schedule. Bus 42A also goes from FIS (departs 13 and 43 after the hour) to the Brüder Winter Strasse, but NOT on the day of the Hessentag parade, 19 June.

4. Parking at Hessentag
There are two huge parking lots available during the event. For a look at their location, see P1 and P2 on this map.
• P1, which is accessible only from the Frankfurter Landstrasse, is closer to the Altstadt, but is still a 20-minute walk away.
5. FIS participation at Hessentag
A number of FIS-related events will take place during Hessentag. Click here for a map.
• 10-18 June – 10:00-19:00; Activity tent on the Königsteiner Strasse/Corner Füller Strasse; Student, parents and teachers will offer various activities to the Hessentag guests. For a detailed look at the events, click here.
• 16 June – 17:00-19:20; FIS 50th Anniversary Performing Arts Showcase; ES and US students will demonstrate their creative talents on the Thomas Cook International Stage on the Bleiche. Parents can park at school and take public transport downtown, but  please note that the school closes at 22:00.

• 19 June: 13:00; Hessentag Parade through the Altstadt with a pedestrian group of FIS students and staff dressed in national costumes.
