    Frühlingsfest 2020: What is Springfest in Munich?

    Frühlingsfest 2020: What is Springfest in Munich?

    What is Frühlingsfest, otherwise known as Springfest, or Munich’s other Oktoberfest? It’s the Springbest!

    Springfest is many things – Oktoberfest in spring, Oktoberfest’s lesser-known but cooler younger sister, the warm up for Oktoberfest, and/or Oktoberfest with better weather and less tourists. The story goes that Oktoberfest started when a royal couple got married and shouted everyone free beer, and then it become a yearly tradition, and then twice yearly because once clearly isn’t enough. Springfest is the twice. Springfest 2020 will run from April 23rd to May 11th (and Stoke will be there, of course), offering all the same delights as Oktoberfest only on a smaller scale.

    The beer halls are the same, only there are less open, and that spring-time Bavarian bier is just a little lighter. The crowds are a little lighter too, with Springfest “only” attracting crowds in the tens of thousands as opposed to numbers in the millions. This means you can enjoy all the atmosphere of Oktoberfest without the anxiety-inducing hordes of wasted Contiki tourists, offering you a more authentic experience overall. Everyone dons the dirndls and the lederhosen, partakes in prosting and pretzels and partying and everything else you associate with Oktoberfest, and without the enormous queues the merry-making is all the merrier. The weather is generally warmer (score), there’s a carousel that doubles as a bar and there’s even a flea market that sometimes accompanies the Springfest site.

    Are you enticed by Springfest yet? You should be, and Stoke can set you up with the most affordable option for experiencing the German Volksfest, perfect if you’re travelling on a budget. €60 per night will have you camping in pre-erected tents with mattresses and bedding provided, enjoying a hot dinner and breakfast made by our celebrity chefs, and give you exclusive access to the best party in Munich – Stoketoberfest at the Stoke campsite. The beer halls are an easy commute away, and an extra €10 will get you unlimited beer and sangria for the duration of your stay with Stoke. Don’t fret if you’re not around in September – come to Springfest with Stoke! It’s Oktoberfest, in spring. And maybe even better.

    If you’ve got more than one European festival one your bucket list, check out the Stoke Travel Passport for a budget-friendly way to experience the best of them. For a set price, you can pick and choose which festivals you attend with Stoke. Flexible and valid for two years from purchase, the Passports are perfect for you flexible folk who don’t like to plan too far ahead.
