U.S. citizens are reminded to exercise caution during the upcoming Schueberfouer event held in the Glacis parking area of Limpertsberg from 19 August to 07 September 2022. Petty crimes such as pickpocketing and other non-violent crimes of opportunity may occur in and around the fair grounds. Alcohol related incidents may occur during the later hours of the festival, both on the fair grounds and in the surrounding neighborhood streets. The Embassy is unaware of any specific terrorist threat information concerning this year’s fair; however, events attracting large crowds have been the target of attacks in Western Europe.
By remaining attuned to your surroundings and practicing good personal security techniques, U.S. citizens should be able to enjoy the Schueberfouer event safely.
During Schueberfouer, U.S. citizens should practice the following:
- Park your vehicle off the street or in a well-lit area
- Do not leave valuables in plain view inside your vehicle
- Avoid late night hours near the event
- Avoid groups of intoxicated revelers
- Avoid driving near the event if possible, and watch for pedestrians crossing at unexpected locations
- When walking, be especially careful at crossings, as distracted or intoxicated drivers may not recognize your right-of-way
- Immediately call local police in the event of an emergency at 113
- Safeguard your passport and valuables
Parents should also consider registering young children before attending via the police website link below:
From the police website:
People responsible for one or more children can register the children in advance by filling in a form, available exclusively through the e-Police Station. Then when they visit the Schueberfouer, they can go to the on-site police station to pick up a sticker indicating the name of the child, the police station telephone number and a code, which police officers can use to trace the child’s guardian. This enables officers who find a lost child to identify them quickly and locate the person responsible for them. It also means that people who find a lost child have the contact number of the police station at the fair, so they can contact the Schueberfouer security officers directly.
Registration is valid for the duration of the fair; children must be registered in advance.
