Camp King Oberursel

The other day I took a little detour through Camp King and decided to take some photos showing the old Camp King buildings adjacent to the new German buildings.

The row of red townhouses at Camp King Oberursel (foreground) lead right up to the fence separating its well-heeled residents from the old neighboring settlement of the Rosengärtchen. This high-rise area was built in 1972.

Yesterday afternoon, our son was approached by a stranger asking for directions around the Rosengärtchen. This is often the case as the numbering system around here is chaotic and without German logic, if there ever was any ( More about that from the NY Times‘ article Delusions of German Logic).

Nevertheless, a few words were exchanged in English and our son was amused to learn that this stranger from Australia knew my blog. Based on one of my posts about Accommodations in and around Oberursel, he had taken my recommendation and booked himself into the Beethoven Bed & Breakfast.

Well, this has been said a million times, I know. But it is a small world, especially with the help of the internet.
