German Vocabulary for Spring Posted by on May 2, 2017 in Language, vocabulary

Spring has sprung! Last week it snowed in Munich, but this week the weather is warmer and sunnier. I love Frühling (Spring): the trees start to blossom, the birds start to chirp and the sun rises earlier in the morning! Here’s a simple vocabulary post to get you in the mood for the season.

In Munich there is also Frühlingsfest (Spring festival) which is similar to Oktoberfest (also held at Theresienwiese – the same place where Oktoberfest is) but a lot smaller.
