Kronberg Castle and Flashlight Tours

For 30 October 2012, just in time for Halloween, the Burgverein Kronberg offers two flashlight tours through the castle.

These tours are meant to give you an idea what life was like in the Middle Ages. With the help of your flashlight, a guide, and sturdy foot wear, you get to explore the castle interior at night.

Due to popular demand, a second tour has been added to this year’s flashlight tour program.

30 Oct 2012 at 19:00 and 21:30

Please register by 28 Oct at the Burgbüro (office), tel: 06173 – 77 88 or e-mail: burgverein@burgkronberg.de

Fee: euro 6 (discounted fee: euro 3)  I’d assume the discount is for students. 

Important: Bring your flashlight!

Sunday Market near Oberursel

Shopping for a last-minute pumpkin took us to Hofgut Hohenwald located between Oberursel and Kronberg.

Next to flowers and vegetables, they also sell fresh bread, cheese, cold cuts, dairy products, and many other goods. This is the perfect place for expats to shop on Sundays, e.g. on your way home from the airport.

I was looking for their hours of operation, but could find none listed for Sundays. We were there around noon today and the place was busy. They might keep the same hours for Sundays as they do for Saturdays (8:00 – 17:00), but this is just a guess.

There is lots of parking space as well.

We ended up with three medium sized pumpkins, two of which need to get carved yet. The acorn squash I purchased will go directly to the oven:-)
