Event Information:

On 16 October 1035 Emperor Conrad II gave the "fair justice" to the city of Bremen. In the first centuries it was a free market for one day on 9 October. A showman with a carousel appeared for the first time in 1809.

 

Freimarkt (lit. Free Fair) in Bremen, Germany, first held in 1035, is the oldest fair in Germany (the more famous Oktoberfest in Munich was first celebrated in 1810)With more than four million visitors each year, it is also considered to be the biggest festival in Northern Germany.

It is celebrated for 17 days in the last two weeks of October, somewhat extended from Friday to Sunday. The area covers approximately 100,000 square meters on two areas: the so-called "Kleiner Freimarkt" (lit. Small Free Fair) on the market square, and the main area at the "Bürgerweide" adjacent to the Main Station and the Exhibition Center.

Like the Oktoberfest, the festival features a number of beer tents and amusement rides. An annual highlight is the "Freimarktsumzug" (lit. Free Fair Procession) held on the second Saturday of the festival.
