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.
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 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!
