Bavarian costumes - Dirndl & Lederhosen
Folklore costumes play a huge role in Bavarian life, more so than in any other state of Germany. The saying goes that: "Clothed in a dirndl or lederhosen you are always dressed to perfection." Folklore dress not only is and always will be a fashionable way to dress but it will always represent an essential aspect of Bavarian culture. Worn by locals to traditional Bavarian festivities such as the hoisting of a maypole, the Oktoberfest or on church high days and holidays, Bavarian folklore costume is also popular at weddings, birthdays and anniversaries.
