Episode 306: German Party
Not everyone in Munich wears traditional costumes dating from around 1800 to celebrate their harvest festival, but many of the locals do. Women wearing Drindls (which is a dress and blouse that everyone recognizes), and men in leather trousers or shorts known as Lederhosen roam the fairgrounds. At least that is what we’d call it, in Munich it’s known as Theresienwiese, but we’re talking about the same kind of event. It’s a festival in late September and early October named “Oktoberfest” and while it is copied around the world, it all started in Munich in 1810.
