Cartwheeling Tournament

Written by Garry and last edited by Garry on


The fascinating cartwheeling event has been held in Düsseldorf since the mid nineteen hundreds, while the tradition of performing a cartwheel (Radschlag) has been around for many, many centuries.

Originally performed openly on the streets by children as a sign of happiness and joy, the symbol has long been adopted by the city.

Attracting hundreds of children, the annual tournament is held on the beautiful promenade alongside the river Rhine.
