Is it Schueberfouer setup time already?

It is that time again when Luxembourg City’s Glacis car park begins transforming into the annual ‘Schueberfouer’ funfair, one of the Grand Duchy’s oldest traditions.

Believe it or not, it is already that time again when Luxembourg City’s Glacis car park begins transforming into the annual Schueberfouer funfair, one of the Grand-Duchy’s oldest traditions.

The first signs of the Fouer are already visible with the entrance gate frame already erected awaiting the colour façade, and lorries baring various structures are poised to build up their part of an event dating back more than 670 years.

This all means that motorists will soon have to find other places to park as the entire surface of Glacis gives way to the Schueberfouer which opens on August 23 and runs until September 11.

While most of the structure will be gradually built over the next three weeks, the big rides are set up only four or five days before the opening.

The fair's official website contains everything you need to know about the Schueberfouer.
