Der Burgenverein Schloss Oberstein und der Musiker Albert Nicodemus hatten zu einem besonderen Anlass, einer „Open Stage“ im Schloss, geladen. Und die Resonanz war überzeugend: insgesamt zwölf Darbietungen, von Coversongs über selbstgeschriebene Stücke bis hin zu Wortbeiträgen (neudeutsch Poetry Slam) konnten die begeisterten Zuschauer in einem mehr als zweieinhalbstündigen Programm restlos überzeugen. Die Audiotechnik wurde vom Burgenverein bereitgestellt, so dass die Musiker nur mit ihren Instrumenten erscheinen und ihre Kabel einstecken mussten. Am Mischpult agierte Joachim Schwarz, der den Sound sicher durch den Abend navigierte. Helfer des Burgenvereins sorgten für Getränke und kleine Snacks und schufen so die gewohnte Wohlfühlatmosphäre im Schloss.
The season 2019 at Schloss Oberstein has begun on 2 April 2019.
Necessary repairs were done during the hibernation, various painting work was carried out and Castle Oberstein invites again to visit.
From 2 April, the castle can be visited between 11:00 and 17:00 during the familiar opening hours from Tuesday to Sunday. During the holiday months of July and August, the castle is also open on Mondays from 11.00 to 17.00.
The first highlight of the season will be the Forest Spring Festival on April 28, 2019 at Schloss Oberstein. Further information follows.
February 22, 2019 will surely be remembered for a long time by many music lovers from the Idar-Oberstein area. The musicians of MAYBEBOP knew how to draw everyone in their spell on their second appearance - multiple standing ovations spoke their own language.
After the local a-capella formation @bast had made great efforts to tune the audience to the top act, MAYBEBOP entered the stage at around 19:55 to sing together with the local heroes. Frenetic applause was the result, and so the musicians had the ideal preconditions to present their versatile and funny program. Sistemfeler reloaded so to say, garnished with new songs and, as already 2017, intonated in outstanding virtuosity. The audience was freaking out, three encores were enforced by the enthusiastic listeners. And so, after two and a half hours, you saw consistently satisfied and happy faces in the audience. MAYBEBOP promised to come back and we look forward to it!
The Christmas market at Schloss Oberstein had to suffer from the bad weather in 2018. Nevertheless, and maybe because of it, we were able to welcome numerous visitors to the castle. In addition to the diverse range of exhibitors from the region our visitors could strengthen themselves on many food and beverage stands. At times there was hardly any getting through in our historic castle.
Thanks to the leadership of our two chairmen Ralph Effgen and Michael Dietz, as well as our numerous helpers, a smooth operation was ensured. Also the performances of different music groups contributed decisively to the Christmas flair. A highlight was certainly the handover of a donation of 500 euros by the IT system house Thome.
