Biggest fun fair on the Rhine

17–26 July 2015
Dating back over 690 years and still going strong, Düsseldorf’s St. Sebastianus shooting club boasts more than 1,500 members. With the biggest fun fair on the Rhine the club will be celebrating the day of its patron saint, St. Apollinaris (23 July). As part of the event, the “Historic Procession” on 13 July
is a spectacle to behold, as more than 3,000 uniformed shooters, marching bands, teams of horses and carriages wind their way through the streets in what is one of Germany’s largest parades.

For no less than the 114th time, the big funfair city will be erected in 2015 on its traditional, picturesque site, on the Oberkassel Rheinwiesen. These meadows, which have an area of 165,000 sqm, will provide space for stallholders from both Germany and abroad, and a wide range of rides, guaranteeing fun for all the family. Like every year, one of the highlights will be the grand fireworks display on the last day of the funfair (14 July 2015).


Fun fair opening times:
Mon – Fri from 2.00 p.m.,
Sat from 1.00 p.m.,
Sun from 11.00 a.m.

Dates for upcoming years:
