Biggest fun fair on the Rhine

11–20 July 2014
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.

This year, the popular fun fair will take place for the 113th time at its picturesque site on the Rhine meadows in Oberkassel. National and international operators of fairground attractions will be presenting both nostalgic and the latest sensational rides on grounds spanning 165,000 sq m.


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

Organiser:  
St. Sebastianus Schützenverein Düsseldorf 1316 e.V.
