Fairs and firework shows in NRW

Historical fairs, colourful fireworks, high-tech rides

Traditional funfairs, folk festivals with something for everyone and fireworks that spectacularly light up the night sky are some of the amazing experiences that await visitors to NRW. This is where age-old traditions and the high-tech complement each other perfectly: Traditional horse and cattle fairs are still going strong, accompanied by the bright lights of modern funfair rides. Also unmissable are firework shows like the “Lights of Cologne”, when the night sky becomes the backdrop for a truly amazing spectacle.
