The Frühlingsfest (Spring Festival) at the Mundenhof: spring market, arts and crafts, and Baden cuisine

Each year, the people of Freiburg and visitors to the city celebrate the beginning of spring together. For two days, they come together to celebrate the end of winter at the Freiburg Spring Festival with art, culture, food, and entertainment. Entrance is free.

Wann und wo findet das Freiburger Frühlingsfest statt?

The Freiburg Spring Festival always takes place in April, on the grounds of the Mundenhof animal and nature adventure park and the city nursery of Freiburg.
Once one of the largest farms in the state, the Mundenhof is now a local recreational area with close ties to agriculture and nature education. With its 38 hectares, the Mundenhof is Baden-Württemberg’s largest animal habitat.

Getting to the Mundenhof by public transportation or your own car

The festival grounds are easy to reach by public transportation. The Freiburger Verkehrs AG (VAG) public transportation authority provides a free shuttle service from the Munzinger-Straße stop to the grounds of the city nursery via Rieselfeld. The shuttle buses leave every 10 to 15 minutes during the entire event.
From the public Mundenhof parking lot, you can take the VAG shuttle bus or the Zäpfle-Bähnle trolley train for free to the city nursery and back.
If you come by car, you can reach the grounds of the Mundenhof via the Mitte feeder road. Limited parking is available in Mundenhof’s visitor parking lot. The parking fee is €5.00/vehicle.

The Mundenhof Spring Festival: a program filled with art, culture, food, and entertainment

Enjoy an exciting program at the Spring Festival! At the spring market, for example, you will have the opportunity to buy great products before indulging in delicious dishes at one of the many food vendors. You can watch various artists in an extensive stage show or admire the horse-riding skills of Reitclub 99, which is hosting an equestrian tournament for the third time.
One real highlight has got to be the Ganter brewery’s horse-drawn carriage that will drive you in true Baden style from the public parking lot to the festival grounds on Sundays (weather permitting).
