The Schueberfouer is one of Luxembourg's undeniable highlights! During nearly three weeks one of Europe's biggest (and oldest) funfairs takes place at the Glacis in Luxembourg City. Between candyfloss and 'Gromperekichelcher', between games for old and young, between commercial and beverage stands, over 2 million visitors are enjoying themselves each year.
We hereby invite you to send in your best picture taken at the 2016 edition of the Schueberfouer in order to join our contest and win one of the special prizes!
