In April and May, the continent is in bloom, and the tourists haven’t yet flooded back. Spring into action and see Europe at its most charming.

Springtime in Europe is a delightful season characterized by the gradual warming of the weather, the blooming of flowers, and the emergence of vibrant greenery. It’s a time when many cities and countryside areas come alive with color and activity, including cultural celebrations, various festivals, and annual events.

Global Air Charters makes European travel a cinch, with ultra-long-range airframes easily capable of service across the Atlantic. We have years of experience chartering airframes into continental Europe’s seaside countries, river valleys, and mountain villages.

Our dispatchers have expert knowledge of the smaller regional airports on the continent and can pinpoint your arrival and departure to suit your travel plans perfectly. Contact our flight brokers today about flights to Europe. They’ll provide you with the best options.

Late spring is also an excellent time to watch our Empty Legs list. We routinely charter one-way flights to Europe when the weather turns nice. That often leaves an airframe’s return leg to the United States without passengers and available at a discount.

Whether you’re a fan of flowers, festivals, or history, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Here are some of our favorite sights during the spring season in Europe:

The Netherlands

The Netherlands is known for its tulips and windmills; spring is the time to see them! The countryside around Rotterdam is replete with colorful fields and many guided and self-guided tours to help you tiptoe through them all. From mid-March to mid-May, visitors can visit the Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse. Over seven million tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths bloom in various colors.

The Netherlands honors the king’s birthday with King’s Day, held on April 27th. The entire country celebrates with street parties, parades, and music. Joining the festivities in Amsterdam would be the perfect capstone to a week in the countryside.

Czech Republic

Springtime in Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic, is a magical experience. As the city shakes off the cold of winter, it comes alive with the vibrant colors of blooming flowers and trees.

One of the highlights of spring in Prague is the blossoming of cherry trees, particularly along the Vltava River and in the city’s parks. An abundance of greenspace and gardens, including the beautiful Vojan Gardens and the historic Royal Garden at Prague Castle, are perfect for leisurely strolls or picnics.

Spring also marks the beginning of the festival season in Prague. The Prague Spring International Music Festival, one of the city’s most prestigious cultural events, takes place from mid-May to early June, featuring a range of classical music performances.

Visiting Prague in the springtime is wonderful with a perfect blend of natural beauty, cultural events, and the charm of this historic European city.


Germany is famous for its traditional folk festivals, but they don’t all happen at harvest time. Their spring festivals are less crowded, with the same joyous atmosphere and many of the same activities.

Frühlingsfest is the highlight of spring in Bavaria. Known as the “little sister of the Oktoberfest,” the festival is held on the same grounds as the legendary Oktoberfest celebrations in Munich. Frühlingsfest features parades, fairground rides, flowing beer kegs, contests, and a legendary flea market. The 2024 festival runs from April 19 to May 20.

Stuttgart’s Frühlingsfest is the biggest spring festival in all of Europe and runs from April 20 to May 12. Complete with a crafts market, musical performances, rides, food, and drink, this spring festival is an ideal celebration of the return to sunshine and warmer days.
