FUNFAIR IN NEUSS
August 28 - September 1 2020
The funfair in Neuss takes place every year during what is traditionally the sunniest period of the summer. Held as part of the Schützenfest Riflemen’s Festival, the fair offers a vast array of some three hundred rides, carousels and stands.
Suppliers of a variety foods and beverages also present their wares, of course. The traditional Bratwurst, grilled sausage, and Bockwurst, hotdog, to battered and fried fish rolls, Backfisch, and potato pancakes, Reibekuchen, are on offer. Plus all manner of sweet stuffs. Something can be found to suit just about every palate. The traditional drink of choice is beer, naturally.
Erected on the grounds of the racecourse, the fair offers a fun day of entertainment for the whole family. Rides include the big wheel, nostalgic rides and plenty of high, fast, spinning stuff.
