1. It’s like its big bro Oktoberfest, but less crowded and with way better weather.
Bavarian history states that on October 12, 1810 a wedding between Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen took place, and all of Munich’s citizens were invited to celebrate. An everlasting supply of beer rained into happy German throats and Oktoberfest was born. But then the locals couldn’t wait for another one to come around — thus, Springfest. Or more locally known, Frühlingsfest.
So why is Springfest less crowded? It was inaugurated in 1964, so the tourists haven’t really caught on yet. (And also because Stuttgart’s Springfest is still drawing the largest crowd of drunk wannabes.) Plus, the weather’s great. You can get drunk off Paulaners while sitting in a weissbier garden, and maybe get a slight tan out of the deal.
