No event in Luxembourg can compete for popularity with the Schueberfouer funfair, which attracts some two million visitors to the Glacis every summer.
The 2014 edition of the Schueberfouer fair (photo Nadassfoto) features a bunch of new attractions, including many that will thrill the most daredevil of fairground visitors such as the 80-metre free-fall Skyfall, the Booster Maxxx 4G (an upgrade of Airmax), and the Soccer Bowl (strangely featuring American football players in its décor) that allows two brave thrillseekers to experience the ride standing in cages either side of the seated passengers. Other new attractions include the Geister-Schlange ghost-train and the Rock & Roll “loopfighter”.
To make the fair experience more interactive, the Ville de Luxembourg has launched a new free to download Schueberfouer app for iPhone and Android. Visitors can find the location of different attractions, restaurants, snack stands and bars, an agenda featuring all of the special days at the fair as well as practical information about access and transport, the location of cash machines, drinking water fountains and WCs. In addition to the new app, the Schueberfouer website has also been completely revamped.
And of course, all the old favourites including the big wheel and bumper cars will be at the fair, as well as the “restaurants” serving traditional Schueberfouer food such as gromperekichelcher, fried fish and chips, beer and crémant.
Food is served daily from noon, while the rides and games of chance and skill open at 2 p.m. The Schueberfouer closes at 1 a.m. on weekdays and at 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Parking around Limpertsberg is charged throughout the fair--even at night and on weekends--so the best way to get to the fair is by public transport or by using one of several special Park & Ride facilities as listed on the Schueberfouer website.
