Oberursel is located about 20 minutes to the North-West of Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The nearest airport is Frankfurt International Airport (FRA).

The club house is a 10 minutes walk from the "Weißkirchen Ost" train station (U3 line) and from "Oberursel-Stierstadt" station (S5 line). The next bus stops are "Oberursel-Weißkirchen Querstraße" and "Oberursel-Weißkirchen Stadtwerke" (look up connections on RMV transport's website). Parking is possible alongside the road. Gated and roofed bicycle racks are located at the entrance.

  • On Sundays and during seminars, men are in the front room, women at the far end (access across the gym from the inside).
  • On Thursdays, women use the changing room at the entrance, men the one at the far end (go there along the right on the outside of the building).

We practise on the stage at the back of the gym.

Please arrive 15 minutes early – classes start on time. Change first, then help setting up the mats.

Information for Seminar Participants

At most seminars, you may drop your sleeping bag at the dojo in Oberursel. There is a small D&B fee which includes a full breakfast (please check the flyer for details). We have a self-service bar at the dojo that provides drinks at very affordable prices. Cups and a kettle are available, too.

As a rule, we go to a nearby restaurant for Saturday lunch. You are of course welcome to prepare your own meal at the Oberursel dojo. At most seminars we have a party at the dojo on Saturday evening for which we invite you to contribute something to eat (please check the flyer).

Next shopping possibilities from the Oberursel dojo are EDEKA supermarket (Mon – Sat, 8 am – 9 pm) and REWE supermarket (Mon – Sat, 7 am – 11:30 pm). The ARAL petrol station in Weißkirchen has a 24/7 shop.

Accommodation options in Bad Homburg

In the near-by area and for seminars with all classes at our Bad Homburg dojo you may look for accommodations in Bad Homburg. To the Oberursel dojo it is about 10 mins by car, public transport times depend on route.

The "Darmstädter Hof" is run by one of our dojo members; it is located right at the bus stop "Bad Homburg v.d.H. Markt", 3 min walking distance from our Bad Homburg dojo. This is also right in the city center, so that there are many shopping possibilities within walking distance, e.g. a REWE supermarket just across the street (Mon – Sat, 7 am – 9:30 pm). Please note that on Sundays shops are closed in Germany; most petrol station shops are open, though, and some bakeries. For checking in, it might be fastest to take the bus to "Bad Homburg v.d.H. Kurhaus" stop, a 5 mins walk from the hotel. Or just walk ca. 15 mins from Bad Homburg station.

The Bad Homburg Youth Hostel is also very close – it is only a 7-minutes walk from the dojo.

Please book early, accommodation availability and prices depend on the Frankfurt Fair schedule.
