SPRINGFEST 2019: BEERS & BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE

Known as Frühlingsfest in German, Springfest is Munich’s other beer festival. Sometimes referred to as “Oktoberfest’s Little Sister”, Springfest features the same big, strong German beers, delicious food and festive atmosphere – just in April/May, not September/October. Stoke Travel’s all-inclusive Springfest packages include: Springfest entry, a stay in pre-erected twin-share tents with mattresses and sleeping bags, a tasty breakfast each morning, a hearty wholesome dinner each evening, awesome Stoke Travel campsite parties, guides to direct you to the beer halls, and an international crowd!

SPRINGFEST: GERMANY’S OTHER BEER FEST

The crowds aren’t quite as big as they are for Oktoberfest, but that doesn’t mean that Springfest is any less fun. Springfest attracts 100s of thousands of beer-loving partiers – most of them from Munich and Germany, meaning that the crowd is more authentic and with less tourists than Oktoberfest. This means the waiting time for beers is drastically shorter, plus the locals will be very happy to party with you. Also, as the party is in Spring we can expect warmer weather, which is why Springfest is more focused on outside, beer-garden style drinking. Sitting in the sun enjoying the world’s best beer with your new German friends? Das ist gut!

In addition to the delicious and pure German beer, Springfest also features the world’s best beer-drinking food, carnival rides to test your stomach, and some features unique to the party – like the huge flea market, where the beer will help you make some impulse buys, and fireworks displays of an evening.

FRÜHLINGSFEST 2019 WITH STOKE TRAVEL

The Germans call Springfest Frühlingsfest, and we call our campsite Stoketoberfest, the second best party in Munich. Stoketoberfest is Stoke Travel’s campsite and party, festival within a festival located in Munich city and many travellers’ favourite part of the event. In addition to being where you sleep, eat and get ready for the beer halls, Stoketoberfest is a wild party, a stage show featuring DJs, an open bar, a place to buy your traditional dirndls and lederhosen, where drinking games are happening during every waking hour and the dancefloor never seems to stop, filled with like-minded travellers from all over the world. Our packages are all inclusive, so your tent, sleeping bags and air mattresses are pre-prepared for your arrival, our chefs will cook you a hearty breakfast every morning so your stomach is lined and a healthy, filling dinner every night. The Stoke Travel crew and guides will show you the party, both at our campsite and in the beer halls, and make sure you enjoy it. Our open and unlimited bar serves up German beer and Spanish sangria – as much as you want for only €10 a day.

SPRINGFEST ACCOMMODATION

Your accommodation at Springfest is ready for your arrival. At this festival we’re camping in the Munich metropolitan area, or short public transport ride from the festival itself. At Springfest you can choose from twin-share or solo tents, with mattresses and sleeping bags included, your own private teepee that will sleep groups of up to eight, or the Stoke Travel Glamping setup, with an added layer of luxury and comfort for the fancier campers, while still being conveniently located in the Stoke Travel party campsite.

Type

Trip Type:

MUNICH, GERMANY

The Springfest grounds (Theresienwiese) are located in the centre of Munich. This is where you will find the beer halls, fun fair rides and glorious Bavarian food.

The Stoke campground is located only 20 minutes away from the madness. We head to the festival every day on cheap and easy public transport, which picks us up directly in front of the campsite and drops us into central Munich, all day every day. Our Stoke guides are there to get you into the party and point you in the direction of that beautiful Bavarian beer.

ONCE YOU’VE MADE IT TO MUNICH

Metro directions to campsite

From Hauptbahnhof, or any Munich metro station, take the underground S2 towards Peterhausen and jump off at Untermenzing. Right outside the station hop on the 164 bus for three stops to Campingplatz Obermenzing. Just ask the driver or have a look on the bus route map. Jump off the bus and you’re at our doorstep. Too easy!

Metro directions from the airport

It’s very easy to get to the campsite from Munich Flughafen airport. Follow the signs in the airport to the train station. Then take the S1 underground to Laim, at Laim change over to the S2 in the direction of Peterhausen, getting off at Untermenzing. You then head out of the station to the bus stop and take the 164 bus which stops at the camping grounds: Campingplatz Obermenzing.

 

ACTUALLY GETTING TO MUNICH

Check out GoEuro for the best rates on buses, trains, and flights around Europe.

 
TRAIN IT, OF COURSE IT’S EFFICIENT.

All trains entering Munich come in to the city’s centrally-located main station (Hauptbahnhof), which is shared by the city’s rail and bus systems, providing connections to all destinations within the city and around the region. High-speed InterCity Express (ICE) trains from Hamburg, Frankfurt and Augsburg provide rapid service to Munich. The City Nightline (CNL) features comfortable sleeping quarters on its overnight services. The Deutsche Bahn has more than 25,000 miles of track, connecting all points in Germany, with international service as well. If your travel originates in the UK, British Rail has four daily scheduled trains to Munich and from Zurich, there is daily service on the train called the Bavaria. It’s very easy to get to the campsite from the train station, just follow the metro directions below.

 
BUSES ARE THE BESTEST.

You can travel by bus to Munich from London, Paris and many other European cities. The largest bus operator from the UK to the continent is Eurolines, operating out of London’s centrally located Victoria Coach Station. In Paris, Eurolines is located on rue Malmaison, a 35-minute Metro ride from the centre. In Munich, bus services usually terminate at the Zentraler Busbahnhof, which you will find on the north side of the Hauptbahnhof. It’s very easy to get to the campsite from the bus station, just follow the metro directions below.

Springfest Reviews

I travelled with these guys for Springfest and had an absolute blast. I met some great people there and still keep in touch with them. Stoke really make you feel like part of the family and you feel super welcome, you’ve gotta be party loving and open-minded to travel with them. I loved partying with them this year and hope to get on some more trips with them. Cheers Stoke!
