Biergarten Time Again in Oberursel

As of 15 May, 2020, restrictions have been eased on pubs and restaurants in Germany. These new rules for pub- and restaurant owners are not easy to comply with, so some continue with only take-out or delivery service, and some have reopened.

This Biergarten on Hohemarkstrasse in Oberursel has enough space to accommodate everyone’s updated social distancing rules.

Biergarten 16 May 2020

When we left the Biergarten, we noticed this fairly new sign right by the U-3 tracks. It is posted in all kinds of languages, but not the local one. 🙂

I imagine though after a few beers at the Biergarten, the word STOP is enough for Germans to clear the tracks before crossing.

The same crossing is used by refugees housed in one of the buildings near the Biergarten. That explains it.

I’m so glad it is Biergarten time again. After almost two months of self-isolation, this is a real blessing.

Taking Walks around Oberursel, Germany in April 2020

Taking walks around our residential area and the nearby forest has become my daily routine. With self-isolation and social distancing, it is good to be able to still go out and about.

This morning, I saw many joggers and people using their phone in the forest. Social distancing and domestic friction brings people into the forest to call a friend in privacy. It seems the forest is a good place to air oneself. 🙂

Here are some photos of places which have not changed during COVID-19.

The U3 is waiting for its departure at the end of the Hohemark line.

It is usually ‘Coffee To Go’, and food for take out, but the principle is the same. Restaurants and bistros are eager to stay afloat. Currently, 70.000 hotels and restaurants face bankruptcy.

One of the many walks we can take around the area – this one highlights the Celtic walking tour.

We walked all the way to the end of the town limits, which is heading towards Schmitten.

This must have been put up just a few weeks ago as it reflects the current situation.

Heading back into Oberursel, we are reminded of the town’s sister cities.

Maria’s Beer Balcony in Germany

My friend, Bea, and I share the longest friendship, which goes back to the early 1970s. We both lived in the same Franconian village, and have been friends since junior high. For many years, we only communicated via handwritten letters across the Atlantic.

With the advent of the internet, we started communicating more often again. In the past, we used to have only one day together, before she had to return to the USA. This time, we had three whole days to spend together. We both refreshed our Franconian dialect in no time.

Korean Café Haeah in Oberursel

On 11 May 2019, Café Hae ah opened its doors in Oberursel. It is located in the RosengÀrtchen shopping carree (next to the Korean supermarket Handok).

It is not only a cafĂ©, but also more like a bistro serving a few lunches. We had Steak Pasta and Jeyuk Bokkeum (ì œìœĄëł¶ìŒ), which is spicy fried pork.

Steak Pasta

Both dishes were really good, but the Steak Pasta really took me in. I’ll be back for more soon.

Service in Korea usually has to be super fast. Well, this one isn’t… yet.

Bike Race on 1 May 2019 – Public Holiday in Germany

This is for all newcomers to the area, and a friendly reminder for all others as well.
Due to the annual bike race on 1 May, there are many road blocks in and around Oberursel between 9:00 – 14:00.

If you plan on taking a day trip somewhere, then leave your home early that day.
