The Frühlingsfest is almost exactly like the Oktoberfest, but on a smaller, less crazy scale. They have only two big beer tents, in comparison to the Oktoberfest’s 14, and a few thousand people visit it, instead of a few million. They still have an amusement park, live music, fireworks, roasted almonds and pretzels, of course.
In addition, they have a Weissbier beer garden, and in case you can’t decide whether to go on the rides or to drink beer, there’s a revolving Pils carousel, so that you can kill two birds with one stone and get dizzier even quicker than usual. There’s also lots of rides and go-cart racing for the children and a flea market for the ladies on Saturday.
The festival is open from 11:00 - 23:00, Fri, Sat 11:00 - 23:30, Sun 11:00 - 23:00. Metro: Theresienwiese.
