Ice Cream Parlor Corona in Oberursel

You know you have been living in one place for a long time, when you no longer think about place names and their meanings.

But yes, our ice cream parlor on Hohemarkstraße in Oberursel, is really named Corona (which is Italian for crown), and is run by the Franceschet family.

While I’m at it – if you live in the area, the Eiscafé does offer delivery within Oberursel during these restricted times. Minimum purchase is € 15, and deliveries are made between 12:00 – 19:00. Handling etiquette requires you to leave the money in front of the door for social distancing.

Order yourself some delicious ice cream such as the famous Spaghetti Eis. Guten Appetit!

A Winter Day in Oberursel

In late January, I had the chance to visit the old part of town in snowy weather. My walk took me from the market square through the Strackgasse, and then back to the U-Bahn station.

Oberursel Market Square

At the market square, next to the restaurant Marktweib, you find one of the 40+ fountains of Oberursel.

This must be one of the most photographed views of Oberursel.

Oberursel and St. Ursula Church

The Strackgasse, leading from the market square back into the Vorstadt (commercial area), was rather quiet on that Wednesday morning around 10 o’clock.

The half-timbered houses (German: das Fachwerkhaus) are maintained in very good condition.

When we first arrived in Oberursel in 1995, we were meant to stay for two years… 24 years later, we are happy to stay longer.
