I traveled from sunny Barcelona to visit a rainy Stuttgart and Munich.
Spring weather in Germany can be changeable and, unfortunately, I experienced more bad than good weather on this trip.
Arriving in Stuttgart late afternoon, I went straight to my accommodation, Motel One Hauptbahnhof, which was close to the main train station.
It also offered great value for money.
Stuttgart Spring Festival “Fruhlingsfest”
The spring festival is held at the fairground in Bad Cannstatt, 6 kilometers from Stuttgart center.
You can reach it easily with the metro “S-Bahn” as it is just one stop from the central train station (Hauptbahnhof).
To get to the festival, I just followed the stream of party-people and soon reached Bad Cannstatt.
The fairground is not so big, so you can easily spot the most popular fun fair attractions.
Tasted some delights from the food stalls and, of course, had to enjoy the local beer, Stuttgarter Hofbrauparty, in one of the four tents.
The atmosphere in the tents is great and everything is well organized.
With better weather and more people, I imagine it would be much more fun.
As Stuttgart is a medium-large city and the festival is a bit outside of town, I would not travel to this city just for the spring festival.
But it can be great to visit if you happen to be around during the weeks the festival is going on.

For a much bigger spring festival, and a more joyful city, I recommend traveling to the Spring-Festival in Munich.
