Hold on to your Lederhosen

up:date June 14, 2022 by Bonn Brandt

There are a number of myths surrounding the beloved Bavarian lederhosen. In 1913, the Bishop of Freising called the Bavarian lederhosen a "work of Satan". Devotees of Bavarian traditions, which had already been firmly established by that time, used this as defiance to wear traditional Bavarian trousers. The Lederhosen so triumphed against all prejudices.

Bavarian Heritage

The characteristic Bavarian culture was shaped during various periods of prosperity over the past centuries. From the ancient Roman Empire, Greece and Italy, there are numerous Mediterranean influences.

Land of Bavaria

Progressive-conservative and traditional-modern Bavaria is so distinct from the rest of Germany that it might as well become a separate state.
