A Schützenfest (German "marksmen's festival") is a traditional festival or fair featuring a target shooting competition common in the cultures of both Germany and Switzerland.

At a Schützenfest, contestants compete based on their shooting abilities, for example by shooting at a wooden representation of an eagle. The winner of the competition becomes the 'Schützenkönig' ("king of marksmen") until the next year's competition.





Congratulations to the 2016
