Munich Springfest kicks off in true Bavarian fashion with a spectacular parade where the traditionally-dressed vendors and brewers travel along the streets to the festival venue.
The breweries’ decorated horse-drawn carts are a fantastic sight to behold as they move the beer barrels to the festival ground.

As they arrive at the beer tents, each beer tent band will perform a concert at the entrance.
