Construction work is already in full swing in Bonn-Beuel for the 643th edition of Pützchens Markt, one of Germany’s largest fairs. „Pötzjes Maat“ – as the annual fair is called in common parlance – will be open from Thursday, 09 September at 6 pm. For the first time the famous event with approx. 550 travelling showmen lasts 6 days. On Tuesday, September 14, the final day, the sky will traditionally be filled with a spectacular fireworks display at 10 pm.
