Overview
More
Germany's second-biggest funfair after Oktoberfest, Cranger Kirmes in Hernes sets out its focus on carnival attractions rather than beer consumption. The festival does provide a giant beer tent, but the main draw remains the 500-odd showmen and their roller coasters, ghost trains, games and curios spread out over an 111,000-square-metre space. Originally founded in the 15th century as a horse market, Cranger Kirmes soon evolved into an entertainment event replete with jugglers and magicians. Today, the colourful funfair welcomes about 4 million visitors over 10 days, starting the first Friday of August.

If you do like fun fairs then you should definitely go. But don´t think it is a good idea to go by car. You should really take public Transportation opportunities (they have Special busses) because parking possibilities are limited and maybe expensive. You can find...More
