It has been an awesome evening with outstanding musical performance. MAYBEBOP, an a-apella-formation, performed in front of an excited audience in a sold-out house at Idar-Oberstein city theater. The OCC was hosting the act, and the expectations were more than exceeded. Supported by a sophisticated sound & light system, the band`s performance stunned the audience throughout the program.

The OCC is looking forward to celebrate its 3rd Spring Fair at Oberstein Castle on April 30, 2017 with all citizens of the region.
Compared to the previous years, the Spring Fair will be focused on one day, thus not interfering with the open stores Sunday.
During the Spring Fair, the castle and its outdoor installations will be open to the public from 11 AM to 6 PM. Several products and information will be offered to the visitors. A whole variety of handcrafted goods including jewelry, bags and whoolen accessoires will be offered as well as groceries, liquour, decoration items and, of course, flowers and plants.
