The beer flows! There is fun unlimited! Dressed in traditional Dirndl dresses and Lederhoses, the lovely people of Germany enjoy their famous spring festival in traditional style and in total enjoyment. I am talking about the Stuttgart Spring Festival, Europe’s largest spring festival.

Colorful atmosphere at Stuttgart Spring Festival

Traditionally, when we think of beer festivals in Germany, Oktoberfest comes to mind as it pretty popular all over the world and is definitely one of the largest festivals of Europe. But, if you are looking for a festive atmosphere in the Spring time, the Stuttgart Spring festival has to be right on the top.
