The Schueberfouer's famous giant big wheel, if all goes to plan, should start turning from about Friday August 21. Right now though it is under construction and many hours are needed to install the 350-tonne ride.

On Wednesday, the huge white and green columns and the central axis of the wheel where the large “B” will shine out from were being put together with a special crane brought in to lift and position parts in the the right place.

No other Schueberfouer ride is as time-consuming to construct. It reaches 55 metres into the air with 42 cabin in which up to six people can sit.
