Frühlingsfest, also known as Munich Spring Festival, is an annual event that takes place in Munich, Germany. It usually starts in late April and lasts for about two weeks.
The festival is held on the Theresienwiese, which is the same location as the world-famous Oktoberfest. However, the Frühlingsfest is much smaller than the Oktoberfest and has a more relaxed atmosphere.
During the festival, visitors can enjoy a variety of attractions, including carnival rides, games, and traditional Bavarian food and drinks. The festival also features live music performances and a parade.
One of the highlights of the Frühlingsfest is the tapping of the first barrel of beer, which marks the official start of the festival. This tradition is similar to the tapping of the first barrel at the Oktoberfest.
Overall, the Frühlingsfest is a great opportunity to experience Bavarian culture and enjoy the arrival of spring in Munich.
The Munich Spring Festival started in 1965 and many of the vendors are still represented.
The patron of the Spring Festival, Clemens Baumgärtner, taps the first barrel of beer on April 21 at 4 p.m. in the Festhalle Bayernland and officially opens the Spring Festival
