Stuttgart Spring Festival 2024, from 20 April to 12 May. Program

Stuttgart Spring Festiva

WHERE: Stuttgart, Germany.
WHEN: from 20 April to 12 May 2024

The Stuttgarter Fruhlingsfest is the most important spring festival in all of Germany. It is one of the most important festivals in the city, second in reputation only to the Cannstatter-Volksfest. Compared to the latter, however, it is a less touristy Festival with a greater national imprint.

Precisely for this reason, compared to the autumn beer festivals, it is a more authentic review. It is no coincidence, in fact, that the stands are just five, compared to the ten planned for the Volksfest. Nothing serious, though. At the Stuttgart Spring Festival, you will be able to sip liters of beer, outside the tents, at the many banquets present.

It is one of the most loved holidays by the Germans. A sort of spring Oktoberfest, more genuine and less touristy. A festival in which to savor the excellent beers on offer, taste the culinary delicacies and have fun with all your children. In addition to the food stands, in fact, you will find rides, attractions, games, dances, songs and events dedicated to children.

Do not miss the ride on the splendid Ferris wheel (Riesenrad Bellevue), from which you can enjoy an absolutely unique and suggestive view of the city. Turbo Force, or roller coasters, on the other hand, are dedicated to those who are looking for pure adrenaline. Do not miss, then, to take a tour of the many markets in the area; you can take home a Wasenhasi soft toy, the hare, mascot of the Stuttgart Spring Festival. At the Krämermarkt, on the other hand, you will find a varied offer at affordable prices; from spices, to jewelry and leather goods.
