Kirmes Soest - Soester Allerheiligenkirmes | Things to do in Soest

Updated: May 27


I always used to hear a lot about the Kirmes in Soest, Germany from my wife as she was studying in Soest and going to Kirmes every year. This year, I decided to have a have a look on Kirmes with her!!

How to Reach Soest:


We started my journey from Train Station in Dortmund, Germany. Soest is just 45 minutes away from Dortmund. We took a direct train and it was totally full because lots of people were going for Kirmes in Soest from surrounding cities and town.


Kirmes Festivity in Soest:

Soest is a small town in North Rhine Westphalia with an amazing architecture and have a significant historical importance. It's also famous for its University where lots of International students are studying. Exploring the Largest Festival in Europe, Kirmes in Soest, is the one of the best Things to do in NRW, Germany.

In 2018, The Kirmes started on Nov 7 and it was until Nov 11. To be honest, I did not keep my expectation high when I was going. But when we went out of the Train Station in Soest, I was totally stunted. The old town was fully decorated with lights, thriller rides, gaming stands and food stalls.

On the right side of the train station, there was a ride called Jules Verna Tower. It was around 50-60 meters high. It elevates and pulls the rider at a speed of 2 meters per second to the top of the tower. The view from the top is unforgettable for us. We had a bird eye view of the whole Kirmes.

The next ride was Mr. Gravity. It was like a heavy rotation which has multi rotating plates. The speed was increasing clock wise and counter- clockwise. It was totally INSANE but I loved it.

Here comes our favorite ride ‘’Hard Rock Drive’’. The ride was like bumping cars where they have more than 20 disco cars with amazing music. We were bumping our car in others as much as we can. It reminds me of my childhood. It was so much fun.

On the left side, there were food stalls for crepes with different variety, Ice cream with mouth watering flavors, cotton candy, pop corns, sweet corns, Mandeln with so much innovation, famous potatoes with different sauces, different fries like pommes, curly fries and hot dogs. We could not stop ourself trying all of them.

My next ride was looping the loop. It was a like merry go round in a monkey cage. Basically, the ride is for kids but it’s always fun to be young again.

Time to show some Archery skills – I am an expert in archery and doing it since my college and also participated in many competitions during my student life. I took 4 arrows and three of them hits on Bull’s Eye but when I hit the 4th- two of them in the Bull’s Eye fall down so unfortunately I did not win a big prize. I just got a YOYO.

There were so many shooting stalls as well. There was also a chance to win stuff toys. It was a bit difficult game – I was supposed to shoot the small buttons.

I had tried my luck but was not so much successful but it is always fun to try these types of activities.

There was also a stalls for hitting the ball and drop the tins. There were so many kids who were trying to drop the tins by hitting the ball. I must say it is a bit difficult game for the kids but still I can see the happiness and joy on their faces.

There was also a very huge Sky Wheel which has open and closed sky cabins. I took the ride and enjoyed the amazing panoramic view of the whole city.

On one side, there was so many lights, stalls, rides and people and on the other side the view of Gothic Church. I really loved it. It is a MUST to do in Soest.

The most exciting ride for the kids and adults were Daemonium – It was one of the best rides. The concept was related to the horror house where you go inside by a train. There are lots of scariest ghost who can really the make you frightened. I would challenge you to take this ride !!

The next ride was Mine Tower. OMG OMG OMG !!! The ride was around 80 meters high and it took us slowly upwards and when it reached to the top then a thrilling free fall. If you want to enjoy the spectacular view of the Soest with a thrill, this is the ride for you.

Nessy is a giant monster swing with modern LED technology. It was my favorite ride since my childhood. People from all age groups were enjoying this ride.

Super Hupferl is that kind of ride which is not only fascinating for the riders but also for the spectators. They also had super hupferl which has funniest and fast driving style. Sometimes, it was going on right and sometimes on left with amazing songs in the background. This ride was so much fun.

Wilde Maus is a like a roller coaster for kids but even adults were enjoying the ride so much. It has a track on which it was running but not in a very fast speed. If you are a bit afraid of speed, then you can take this ride.

Infinity ride was one of the most terrifying ride of my life (Just Kidding Sky Diving was). In the beginning, I was very comfortable. It was only moving at the angle of 90 Degrees. On the next round, it was around 140 Degrees and I was really enjoying it. And then I was at 180 Degrees.

OMG my wife was about to die at this point. And then It was a 360 Degree revolving ride. My world was up sight down. OMG this is something really too much fun. But to be honest, if you are scared of height – it’s better not to take it.

There were also lots of traditional and cultural stalls from where you can buy traditional German scarf, clothes, handmade baskets and bags, jewellery, German typical ornaments, wooden craft, toys, souvenirs and lots of interesting stuff for every age group.

After the rides we were exhausted and starving. A wide range of outlets are offering German traditional cuisine. We stoped at one store and ordered German Pommes and Steam Corn. Believe me Pommes (Fries) in Europe are a life saving food. It's highly recommended to take your snack.

Ending Note:

Beside this, there were lot of rides and activities for everybody. I must say that Kirmes in Soest is ultimate fun for all the people from all age group. It has lot to offer to every age group. If you are in Germany in November or visiting Germany, YOU HAVE TO EXPERIENCE IT.
