Springfest Frühlingsfest 2017

Munich, Germany | April - May

20th April to 8th May


Includes stay in pre-erected twin tents with mattresses and sleeping bags, a tasty breakfast each morning, a hearty wholesome dinner each evening, awesome Stoke Travel campsite parties, guides to direct you to the beer halls and an international crowd!

Springfest Frühlingsfest 2017 is often referred to as ‘Little Oktoberfest’, and only tens of thousands of people attend… Only tens of thousands! But the deal is similar; beer halls, big steins of beer and delicious Bavarian cuisine. This time, at Springfest Frühlingsfest 2017, we’ll be there to celebrate the spring in true Stokie style. The beers are a little lighter, the sun is a little brighter, flowers are blooming and there’s also a carousel that doubles as a bar, so as you drink you spin, round and round and round…

And it’s quieter, with far fewer tourists, so it’s in many respects a more authentic experience. Some days the Springfest is joined by a giant flea market, other days with fireworks displays, every day with happy revellers, dance music, scrumptious local food and, of course, the best beer in the world.

Springfest Frühlingsfest 2017 with Stoke Travel

We have the biggest party outside of the beer halls every day of the festival. With Stoke Travel you know you are always coming home when you stay at our campsite. Friendly faces from an international open-minded crowd welcome you, with plenty of beer, funky tunes and a delicious BBQ. This festival is our jam, so we’re experts on Springfest Frühlingsfest 2017. We are also known to be the funniest, wildest and most wonderful bunch of folk in the beer halls. And for an extra €10 per day we serve you all the beer and sangria you could possibly ask for. We call them ‘welcome drinks’, and we look forward to welcoming you to Springfest 2017.

PRICE: €60 | AU$ 87 | £52 | US$ 67 per night (minimum 2 nights)

    The Stoke campground is located within easy access of the Springfest Beer Halls… Just 20 minutes away from the madness. We head into the craziness every day on cheap and easy public transport which picks us up directly in front of the campsite and drops us into central Munich, all day every day. Our Stoke guides are there to guide you into the party and point you in the direction of the beautiful Bavarian beer.

    what3words gives every 3m x 3m in the world a unique 3 word address. This one describes the precise location of the camping ground. Click here to learn more.
  • Meet us there…

    Pilots are the only sober people here (we hope).

    All budget and major airlines fly to Munich from all over Europe and the world. Check out skyscanner or Kayak for details.
    It’s very easy to get to the campsite from the airport. Follow the signs in the airport to the train station. Then take the S1 underground to Laim, at Laim change over to the S2 in the direction of Peterhausen, getting off at Untermenzing. You then head out of the station to the bus stop and take the 164 bus which stops at the camping grounds: Campingplatz Obermenzing.

    Train it, of course its efficient.

    All trains entering Munich come in to the city’s centrally-located main station (Hauptbahnhof), which is shared by the city’s rail and bus systems, providing connections to all destinations within the city and around the region. High-speed InterCity Express (ICE) trains from Hamburg, Frankfurt and Augsburg provide rapid service to Munich. The City Nightline (CNL) features comfortable sleeping quarters on its overnight services. The Deutsche Bahn has more than 25,000 miles of track, connecting all points in Germany, with international service as well. If your travel originates in the UK, British Rail has four daily scheduled trains to Munich and from Zurich, there is daily service on the train called the Bavaria. It’s very easy to get to the campsite from the train station, just follow the metro directions below.

    Buses are the bestest.

    You can travel by bus to Munich from London, Paris and many other European cities. The largest bus operator from the UK to the continent is Eurolines, operating out of London’s centrally located Victoria Coach Station. In Paris, Eurolines is located on rue Malmaison, a 35-minute Metro ride from the centre. In Munich, bus services usually terminate at the Zentraler Busbahnhof, which you will find on the north side of the Hauptbahnhof. It’s very easy to get to the campsite from the bus station, just follow the metro directions below.

    Metro directions to campsite…

    Once you’re at the Hauptbahnhof, or any Munich metro station, take the underground S2 towards Peterhausen and jump off at Untermenzing. Right outside the station hop on the 164 bus for three stops to Campingplatz Obermenzing. Just ask the driver or have a look on the bus route map. Jump off the bus and you’re at our doorstep. Too easy!

    Wicked campers

    The most WICKED, literally, way to get to Oktoberfest is in a Wicked Campervan. We have reserved spots for Wicked vans within the campsite. Check out
    Please note that if you are coming by car, there is very limited parking at the campsite, so you will need to park down the road about a 1 minute drive away.


  • Questions and queries? Ask away. Enter in the Ask a Question tab and we will try to come up with something helpful here.

    What should I bring? 
    Warm clothes to sleep in, a pillow and torch for your tent, something awesome to party in, condoms (better safe than sorry) and a camera!

    Are there shuttles to and from Springfest?
    No but our guides will take you on public transport so you don’t get lost, just don’t stray too far. We find that no matter how many steins one has consumed, miraculously most of our guests come back safe and sound. Munich’s cheap and easy busses and metro leave from the festival and takes you back to the campsite all day everyday.

    Do you provide transport from Munich centre?
    No, but getting around town is easypeasy thanks to Germany’s efficient transport system. Check out the ‘How to get there’ section for address and direction details.

    Who do we see when we arrive?
    Check in at Stoke Reception tent for your tent allocation and orientation. The reception is open weekday mornings at 9am until midnight and weekends, 8am until 1am.

    What is the breakfast like?
    Breakfast is baconny and eggy and delicious. Sometimes there’s a pancake or two thrown in. Our chefs are very talented.

    How many people can fit in the tents?
    We have two-man tents and 8 man teepees. Just let us know your preferences on arrival and we’ll do our best to allocate you the tent you would like (subject to availability). If you’re a group of 3, one of you will be paired with a new friend of the same sex. For those anti-social humans, we offer private tents for a small additional fee. We understand our guests’ needs…… a little extra room for a special someone if the night leads there.

    What amenities are offered at the camp site?
    The campsite offers spacious bathrooms and hot showers for a 1€ token purchased at reception, restaurant/cafe, vending machines, the best Schnitzel food cart in the world and a little essentials store. WiFi and charging stations are available in certain areas and tokens are sold at the campsite reception for laundry facilities.

    Where can we securely store our valuables?
    Stoke Travel provides secure lock boxes for valuables free of charge. We also have a giant container for small valuables which gets locked every night. Plus, if you have something that you would like us to lock up that you are particularly worried about, we will happily lock it up upon check in and return it at check out.

    Where can we buy Lederhosen and Dirndls?
    We sell traditional festival costumes – you can pre-order these or add them to your booking onsite, as well as awesomely stylish Stoke hoodies, tee- shirts, beanies and knick-knacks.

    If we are camping does that mean we’ll be attacked by wild animals?
    We serve unlimited alcohol at our camps. You, my friend, will be the wild animal.

    How can I lose my virginity?
    Be confident, be cool, be calm. Hit up the drunkest babe for the best chance. Some may call this morally wrong, others, ingenious.

    Where is Starbucks?
    Near Haupthbhanof in Zentrum of Munich, there are plenty.

    Do you guys have Skype in Australia?

    Do the tents have hot water, laptops, power-points, king size beds or fridges?
    They’re tents.

    Does the bus come both ways on one side of the road?
    What the F$%# ?

      Spring fest was my first camping experience and it was awesome. The camp grounds were more fun than the festival. Unlimited beer and sangria and cool music, a lot of fun throw backs. Beer Pong was super fun and loosing was even funnier because you have to spin the wheel of embarrassment. The staff were incredible and pretty hot, especially Danny, Sash and Johno… Great people that are always willing to help you out, hang out and they all brought the party to life. (P.S. If you are a princess like me there were charging stations, wifi and outlets in the bathrooms to plug in hair stylers!) THE BEST WEEKEND!
