About The Event
The Frühlingsfest (Spring fest), is offically back!! Well, a version of it. There will be no big beer tents, but they are expanding the beer gardens, plenty of snack shops, regular shops, Ferris wheel, and other attractions. Many people will be heading down on thier own, but if people want to meet up for a few beers and take some great pictures in your Dirndl or Lederhosen! Sign up and we'll send out some infomation about when we will be there if you want to meet up!
People drive down or take the train and get a hotel room for the night on their own. So feel free to do some research. The fair grounds are next to the UBahn stop, "Bad Cannstatt/Wilhelmplatz" or "Bad Cannstatt".
The trams run regularly and staying a hotel that's a few stops away is not a problem! So feel free to research some places!
Hope to see you there~
Stuttgarter Frühlingsfest, or Stuttgart’s Spring Festival, is the little sister of Stuttgart’s autumn Cannstatter Volksfest. Located on the same fairgrounds as the Volksfest (the Cannstatter Wasen in the Bad Cannstatt district), the spring version is held from the middle of April to the beginning of May and features the same sort of rides, attractions (such as the 47 meter tall Ferris wheel) and food… including the bier tents! It is the LARGEST SPRING FESTIVAL IN EUROPE!
The Fruit Column, a tall wooden structure decorated with fruits, was introduced to the Stuttgarter Frühlingsfest in 1995. Originally it was only present at the autumn Volksfest, but in 1995 it was left to stand on the festival site all year round.
Just because this fest is on a smaller scale than the one in the fall doesn’t mean the visitors are any less jovial. Come along and join us in a bier tent for a couple maß and a half a chicken, and pretend to know the words to all the Deutsche drinking songs!
I'm Going! !
Just to let us know if you plan on going so we can include you our plans!
