Pützchens Markt in Bonn


A fair with tra­di­tion

|Septem­ber| Tra­di­tion and nos­tal­gia meet at a mod­ern fair with ac­tion-packed rides: more than one mil­lion vis­it­ors are drawn to Pützchens Markt in Bonn each year.

One of the old­est fairs in Ger­many is held every year on the second week­end in Septem­ber in Bonn Beuel. Pützchens Markt (Fair of the Well) can trace its ori­gins back to the 14th cen­tury: Ac­cord­ing to le­gend, after a long peri­od of drought, the Ab­bess, Saint Ad­elaide, thrust her cro­si­er in­to the earth and wa­ter began to bubble up from the soil. The new wells, or "Putz", gave the vil­lage its name of Pützchen (Little Well). The vil­lage sub­sequently be­came a place of pil­grim­age. With its stalls, traders, jug­glers and ac­robats, this pil­grim­age formed the early Pützchens Markt fair.

Today Pützchens Markt is much more than just a small fair. Vis­it­ors will not only find tra­di­tion­al ca­rou­sels and nos­tal­gic rides, but also a mod­ern art fair and a total of 500 shops of all kinds. The event area, which cov­ers some 80,000 square metres of fair­ground, draws more than one mil­lion vis­it­ors each year. The high­light al­ways comes at the very end: the big fire­works dis­play marks the fifth and fi­nal day of the fair.
