Recommended Posts

Since the last TPR-European Trip and their visit at a Würzburg funfair, to get ERT on Olympia Looping and the great experience the participants had, the interest on german funfairs might be rised, so I guess you like to see some pictures and information of other large funfairs in Germany; like I read before, it seems that many of the Würzburg fair attractions visiting Düsseldorf as well.

 

I proudly present you the...

Rheinkirmes in Düsseldorf

- 3rd largest funfair in germany -

DSC01969.JPG.e98215b920669932537f520bc2a0f9e8.JPG

Rheinkirmes is called the largest funfair at the rhine. It has about 4 million visitors and is the 3rd largest funfair in germany. Octoberfest in munich with 6 million visitors and Cranger Kirmes with around 4.5 million visitors are the two larger ones - by the way, Cranger Kirmes is located in the near of Düsseldorf in Herne and starts after the Rheinkirmes. The most attractions which where located in Düsseldorf are going to the Cranger Kirmes as well (this year it will be from 06th - 15th August).

 

The Rheinkirmes starts annually in the 3rd July week and ends, like every year, with a great firework. - This year it was from the 17th-25th July.

 

Since I recognized here are many gay members on this side it might be interesting for them also... Monday is a huge traditional gay meeting there.

 

If you ever plan a visit, Phantasialand, Moviepark Germany and Toverland are around 1 hour by car from Düsseldorf away, so you have a great chance to combine the funfair with some theme park visit. By train it won´t be a problem, too.

 

There is a little tradition in the attractions placed there, because of that it is a long time ago, that the Olympia Looping was located over here. Most times we had the Eurostar, which is gone and selled now to Moscow, and in the last years, the Alpina Bahn was located at the funfair, most rides of the entertainer Oscar Bruch. There are 3 other coasters located at this funfair (Wild Mouse, Spinning Coaster and Höllenblitz indoor coaster). Every year they will put some new attractions in, but the coasters are most times the same - so I have a tradition in riding them

 

Lets have a look at the pictures:

Fun-Fair-Map with attractions listed

I came from the oldtown part of Düsseldorf with a ferry over the Rhine to the funfair, so I start in the middle part of the fair next to Alpina Bahn:

 

This is an old traditional attraction - a swing, where you can do loopings

I like these Kiddie rides! Started with them as a child...

If you want to get a little punched and hurt without riding a vekoma... go into this one... if you´re already drunken, forget it, your brain will hurt enough on the next day

Fight Club

That´s a better place... have fun, food and drink a lots of bavarian or Düsseldorf beer and listen to bands.

(Sidenote: In Düsseldorf the famous "Alt" beer brew is located and next to it in Cologne the "Kölsch" brew)

You´re sitting sideways of a rocket themed construction. I have to think of the "Flying Machines" at Pleasure Beach in a modern version. The rest is like a starflyer and the same height, but...

Man, I always wondered why doesn't America have Fairs like these, probably safety regulations and too much beer?! Nah, I know the real reason why.

 

This Fair looks awesome and I really like the pictures, thanks for sharing!

Didn´t know about that accident! Yes and now. Like I can see, that are the same seats/cars, but the ride is different; more like a starflyer. The ride in moscow has only one of these cars and turns around a huge arm.

 

But that wouldn´t make a difference to the accident, cause the cable snapped of the seat/car and this could be happen here, too.

 

Fight Club

You broke the first two rules.

 

Don´t speak about Forgot about that.

Thank you for this very nice PTR. I love German fairs so much. But i wasn´t able to go to Düsseldorf. But next weekend I´m going to Cranger Kirmes. This is a nice fair too. But i think Rheinkirmes is better.

Great report! I miss going to German Fairs, I used to live in Mannheim for a few years and always looked forward to the summer when the fests would be rolling through. I collected more beer glasses than any human should own with the ping pong game.
