Friday, 19 August 2022, marks the official opening of this year's Schueberfouer. The City's traditional funfair was established in 1340 by John the Blind, and transforms the Champ du Glacis in Luxembourg City into a gigantic funfair for all the family. Today, the Schueberfouer is one of the largest funfairs in the Greater Region and even in all of Europe, offering a unique combination of local traditions, gastronomy and attractions for thrill-seekers.
Following the official opening of the fair at 17:00 by Luxembourg City Mayor Lydie Polfer, visitors will be able to enjoy a diverse range of attractions, shows, rides, carousels, restaurants, street vendors and sweets, every day from noon to 1:00 for the next 20 days. Catering establishments may choose to open from 11:00.
