This tradition is over 100 years old and only takes place in the summer.
From June to August, the regional sport and costume clubs around Lake Tegernsee host up to twelve parties to raise money for their clubs. Next to the lake, in the forest, or up on a mountain, these Waldfeste are gatherings of locals and tourists alike to celebrate the Bavarian lifestyle and traditions with live brass music, delicious local food, fresh beer and traditional dancing. To blend in with the locals, buy or borrow local Tracht, or traditional outfit. It’s well worth it!
