Customs: an integral part of Bavarian culture
Bavaria would not be Bavaria without its traditions. Also in Reit im Winkl, a calendar without traditional events could not be imagined. Traditional dance contests and “dirndl” dances as well as the Almkirta festival on the Winklmoosalm are only some of the festive highlights every year. Especially the detailed costumes that pretty girls and guys wear on these occasions will not fail to catch your eye.
Guest welcome evenings, folkloric evenings and the ever popular peasant theatre should not be missed either. In January, a trip to Ruhpolding is worthwhile for the Biathlon World Cup.
