Spring Festival Munich from April 21 to May 7, 2023.
The Frühlingsfest opens the season of open-air events in Munich every year. The first Frühlingsfest was opened on April 3, 1965, by Mayor Albert Bayerle, who emphasized at a press conference that "we deliberately refrain from tapping the barrel - as is the custom at the opening of the Oktoberfest." At that time, the Spring Festival served "primarily to amuse children and young people."
At the 57th Spring Festival, from April 21 to May 7, 2023, nearly 100 showman families will offer games, fun and excitement. With a balanced mix, it is ensured that there is plenty for all ages and tastes. From the Oktoberfest Ferris wheel with its enclosed gondolas and unique view over Munich, the children's carousels for the little ones, to the 90 m high wave flyer "Bayerntower". Everyone can prove their skills at various games of chance, skill games and shooting galleries.
An attractive supporting program rounds off the festival experience. The large BRK flea market on April 23, the vintage car parade of the AC-Munich on April 23, the two family days on Tuesday April 25 and May 2, with discounted prices and the Day of Customs on April 30, are beloved highlights for young and old. A very special highlight is the big brilliant fireworks on April 28 and the big music fireworks with the support of Radio 089 Kult on May 5, 23.
The parade with innkeepers, showmen and guests of honor, as well as the breweries' magnificent carriages, will start on April 21, 2023 at 2:30 p.m. in front of the Congress Hall on Theresienhöhe. At the entrance to the festival grounds, the procession will be awaited by the "Böllerschützen", who will give the starting signal for the Frühlingsfest 2023 with their traditional opening shooting. The patron of the Spring Festival, Oktoberfest boss Clemens Baumgärtner, will tap the first barrel of beer at 4:00 p.m. on April 21, 2023, in the Festhalle Bayernland, officially opening the Spring Festival.
The culinary offer at the Spring Festival is very diverse. At the many stands there are various delicacies and delicacies, from savory to sweet, also for vegetarians and vegans.
In the "Festhalle Bayernland", guests will find a wide selection of dishes, sometimes hearty and hearty, sometimes fine and exquisite, sometimes temptingly sweet.
