Bavarian crafts stand for quality: craft enterprises have always been valued and promoted. Whether it's the jeweller who still engraves your wedding rings by hand or the delicatessen that spoils you with delicacies like in the times of King Ludwig – you will still find real craftsmanship here.
So that this remains the case, the Bayerische Handwerkstag e.V. supports more than 100,000 craft enterprises. The umbrella organisation of the Bavarian associations and chambers of crafts takes a stand on policy and administration and represents the interests of Bavarian crafts. It also faces the challenge of finding the next generation to work in the sector. So that your shopping in Bavaria is an experience and the crafts remain innovative and promising for the future.
