The region’s biggest and best fun fair attracts some two million visitors during its two-and-a-half-week residency on the Glacis.
For some it marks the end of summer, but for hundreds of thousands of visitors it is the biggest event of the year. The annual Schueberfouer funfair is packed with rides for thrill-seekers and novices, entertainment and games of luck and skill.
Along avenue Schaeffer there are stalls selling everything from miracle cleaning products to fun t-shirts. And dotted around the fair grounds are a variety of restaurants and food and drink stands selling all manner of goodies including the traditional Gromperekichelcher and fried fish and chips. The Schueberfouer provides a great day out for the family or a fun night’s entertainment with friends.
This year the fair has its own app, available from the Apple App Store or on Google Play, which provides visitors with a host of information about the fair and what to find where.
The Schueberfouer runs until 9 September and is open from noon (restaurants) or 2 p.m. (rides and attractions) until 1 a.m. every day with an extension until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
