Frühlingsfest – The Spring Festival is the celebration of spring and brings more life to the city. Theresienwiese, where also Oktoberfest is organised, turns into a festival area. Frühlingsfest is a smaller festival than Oktoberfest but it includes everything Oktoberfest offers: Bier, festival tents with live music and fun rides.
In Frühlingsfest there are only two festival tents: Hippodrome Festzelt which serves Spaten and Festhalle Bayernland which serves Augustiner. There is also a Weissbiergarden which serves Paulaner.
A very good news about Frühlingsfest is that the prices are much lower. The beer costs 9,80 euro which is 1 euro cheaper than in Oktoberfest.
A huge advantage of Frühlingsfest over Oktoberfest is the number of visitors. There are much less tourists and it is easier to find a place to sit at the tents.
Fruehlingsfest is not only drinking and enjoying the fun rides. There is also a big program happening as part of this festival which you may want to mark into your calendars.
