Apart from setting up a Bavarian ambience, a true Bavarian look demands special dresses for women and men. Women dress up in a traditional dress known as a ‘dirndl’. This dress is a historical costume traditionally worn by Alpine farmers in southern Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. It consists of a bodice, blouse, skirt, and apron. Dirndl varies from simple (low price) to exquisitely crafted and expensive, depending on your choice and budget.

On the other hand, men used to put on ‘lederhosen,’ meaning “leather trousers.” Lederhosen were traditionally worn in southern German Alpine areas, Austria, Bolzano-bozen (German speaking part of Italy). Lederhosen originally referred to a pair of shorts made up of different types of leather, buttons made up of deer horn, embroidery in traditional patterns, and leather braces. The length of lederhosen varies; the small ones ending above the knees are mainly worn by children and are known as kurze ledrhose. The most common ones end just below the knee and are named kniebundlehos. The Lange laderhose goes below the knees. Longer lederhosen are formal ones and were traditionally used for holidays, while the smaller ones were traditionally used for working and hunting.
