Schueberfouer, the traditional annual funfair held at Luxembourg’s Glacis square dates back to the 13th century. To pay an ode to Schueberfouer, the Luxembourg pavilion has a giant 21 metres slide, the first-ever in the history of the World Expo.
The pavilion’s open-air atrium has a replica of the nation’s forest. As this is the last zone to visit at the pavilion, the visitors can exit the pavilion by taking the metal-based transparent slide.
Don’t say excuses and take the awesome slide to slide out of the pavilion.
