Bavarian Culture in Munich

No reviews, be the first!

The modern incarnation of Bavarian culture dates back at least 1,000 years. Custom and tradition are serious business in Bavaria. Folk songs, dances and music are systematically taught, preserved and practiced in many Bavarian towns and townships. Culture clubs, societies for traditional costumes, folk dance groups and bands all labor to keep each new generation of Bavarians in fine fettle.

Festivities such as Kinderzeche (a pageant in Dinkelsbühl designed especially for children), Tänzelfest (a dance festival in Kaufbeuren) and various medieval knight tournaments in Kaltenberg and Kiefersfelden are just a few aspects of the celebration of all things Bavarian.
