Carousels, travelling merchants, laughing children, the smell of baked fish, popcorn and other goodies: it's Schueberfouer time again. The fairground on the vast Glacis is a highlight on the Luxembourg City calendar. The entrance is a great, colourful, painted wooden portal through to this world of its own. The traditional folk fair awaits you with fun fair stands, Ferris wheel, roller coasters and of course countless dining and drinking stalls.
John the Blind, Count of Luxembourg and King of Bohemia, founded the Schueberfouer in 1340. It is also called Schobermesse and is the largest fair in the Greater Region. From 23 August to 11 September, it offers 231 fair stands, including 31 games, 16 children's rides and 41 food and drink outlets. All this makes the Schueberfouer a delightful experience for young and old. Come and immerse yourself in this special world!
The Schueberfouer is open Monday to Thursday from 14:00 to 01:00, Fridays from 14:00 to 02:00, Saturdays from 12:00 to 02:00 and Sundays from 12:00 to 01:00. The catering establishments are always open for lunch time. Check out the interactive Schueberfouer map!
