The marksmen‘s square covering more than ten hectares at the edge of the inner city in Hannover turns into a gigantic fun fair for ten days in summer: a festival venue, which brings together tradition, high-tech and our modern world at the world‘s largest marksmen‘s fair. This carnival has a great deal of colourful attractions for families and friends, and fans of Germany‘s traditional marksmen and women, on the fast and furious, as well as traditional fairground rides – a thrill a minute!
The highlight of the fair is the impressive Marksmen’s Parade which has drawn the people of Hannover out onto the streets since the beginning of the 17th century. The procession begins punctually at 10.00 with the order to „Quick, march!“, and marks the start of the three-hour-long parade with around 12,000 participants. The approximately four kilometre long route is followed by a colourful procession consisting of marksmen‘s clubs, national and international marching bands, and impressively decorated floats, all greeted enthusiastically by the thousands of spectators lining the route. Special attention here is always attracted by the four City Stewards in their top hat and tails, and who are traditionally responsible for “law and order” during the festival.
