Rocket Tower, Eclipse and Konga, Roue Parisienne, Wild Water and Snorter: the very names of the rides promise a wide diversity of pleasures, ranging from high-tech excitement to nostalgic fun for the whole family at the 485th Marksmen's Fair. No less than 13 big rides, some of which are appearing in Hannover for the first time, will ensure the ultimate kick and butterflies in the stomach.
The Grand Parade of the Marksmen
The climax of the ten-day festival is the Grand Parade of the Marksmen on the first Sunday, which traditionally processes from the New Town Hall through the city centre to the fairground.
A very special atmosphere
And of course you can also find everything here that goes to make up a traditional fairground: smart marquees, some 50 stalls serving drinks and delicious snacks, shooting galleries and booths selling tickets for lucky draws will all do their bit towards creating that very special Marksmen's Fair atmosphere on the 25-acre fairground.
