Coburg Bird Shooting

Coburger Vogelschiesen
No other festival has such a long tradition and yet appears to as lively year by year as the Coburg Schutzenfest, called "Bird Shooting".
The richly traditional Coburg bird shooting always begins on the Friday of the last weekend in July.
Vogelschiesen - RiesenradIt begins with the procession of the marksmen into the festival tent, and the city mayor taps the beer at about 8.00pm. Around 11.00pm, there are the opening fireworks. On the first Sunday, the Coburg marksmen parade through the city centre to pick up their marksmen flags from the City Hall and on the second Sunday they are brought back again in the evening.

A Ferris wheel, roller coasters and other rides, shooting galleries, wine and beer booths, food booths and two festival tents with live music give Coburg citizens and their guests a "little Oktoberfest" for a total of 10 days. By the way, on Thursday there is another brilliant firework display!
