The U-Bahn to Oberursel-Hohemark

Today the Monday Podcast took a trip on the U-Bahn to the end station, “Hohemark”. We intended to talk about about the history of the line and what is left of the turning circle at the end of the line that used to be used in the days of the trams.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go according to plan. First we missed the train, and then it starting raining so hard, that we had to give up and go home again.

I hope you still enjoy this rather shorter podcast.
