Golf Course in Oberursel

I have just discovered this little gem All Things German event, listing events around the area such as in Oberursel, Bad Homburg, Kronberg, Königstein, etc.

This is where I discovered  Golfing in Oberursel is available as of Sunday, 3rd April, 2011 at 11am. The Putter’s Paradise course is located in the Oberstedter Straße, in front of  the restaurant Casa Primavera (not to be mistaken for Primavera downtown Oberursel!)

Just a quick question – shouldn’t the new golf course be called  Putters’ Paradise instead of Putter’s Paradise?

Winter in the Taunus Mountains

After having been cooped up for a few days, we decided to take a drive through the Taunus mountains.

I realized once more how beautiful our area is, especially in the winter time. All of these pictures  were taken  within 20 km (about 12 miles) driving distance from Oberursel.

One of these days, we hope to spend a full weekend in Oberems (population: 700).

Feldberg in Winter

These photos were taken at the Feldberg yesterday morning around 10:30. Mind you, if you do get as cold as these photos convey, bring suitable warm-ups with you (Glühwein in a thermos, heating pillows, etc.). The restaurants do not open before 11 a.m.

This is what you will see on the Feldberg:

Skiing around the Frankfurt Area

A few days ago I had published a short list on sledding areas around the Frankfurt area. Now the ski aficionados and aficionadas get their turn for a good run.

Short list of recommended places for skiing around Frankfurt:

* Odenwald – located between the Main and Neckar rivers. Downhill and cross country skiing, bob car riding and tobogganing. More at Odenwald Wintersport

* Vogelsberg – The toboggan runs on the Herchenhainer Höhe and Hoherodskopf are some of the longest ones in Hessen. There are downhill ski trails and night skiing trails. Opportunities for snow shoeing and cross country skiing. Five-km-long trails around Taufstein in Oberwald provide the city of Taufstein to be host of the official Hessian Ski Association Competitions. More at Vogelsberg Touristik.

* Rhön – On the 900-meter Wasserkuppe mountain, you are sure to find snow. Three lifts take skiers to elevated trails. Good terrain for cross country skiers as well. More at Rhoen.

* Willingen – 85-km-long ski runs, most modern 8-person cable car, 12 ski lifts, 25 ski runs. Downhill and cross country trails are well maintained. More at Skigebiet Willingen.

* Taunus – 100 km of cross country ski trails, downhill trails; the downhill trails are at the Feldberg and Triesberg. Cross country trails run from the Saalburg to Rod an der Weil. More round trip trails at Billtalhöhe, Am Sandplacken, Langhals, Sängelberg, Weißeberg, Weilsberg, Windhain, Am Loh and Am Cratzenbach.

(The most popular sledding trails are on the hill in Falkenstein, downhill from Hohemark, at Oberreifenberg and at Sporthotel Erbismühle in Weilrod.)
