Traditional Festivals

Lake Tegernsee is rich in tradition

"Dirndl" and "Lederhosen" are famous around the world and closely linked to our Bavarian traditions. Nevertheless, the costumes and traditions can also work without the other. Both play an essential and important role around the lake.

If you're going to the "Waldfeste", dirndls and lederhosen shouldn't be missing. But of course, the people of Tegernsee do not need a special occasion to throw themselves into their costumes - traditional costume time is always. And the cyclist who stops at the next maypole is also welcome without lederhosen.
