Celebrating the Bavarian way

Laptop and leather trousers – this is how we like to see ourselves. On the one hand, we are modern and open-minded, and on the other hand, we are very traditional.

In Garmisch-Partenkirchen, you will see how perfectly these fit together, for example, in our "Heimatwochen" (local weeks) in July and August. For more than half a century, they have been one of the highlights of the year.

You can look forward to processions, national costume groups, "Schuhplattler" (the Bavarian traditional folk dance), "Goaßlschnalzer" (whipcrackers) and stone lifters. And, of course, all of this done to celebrations and dancing. Feel the great atmosphere and absorb the good mood! Traditionally, the Festwochen starts with the shooting of small cannons.

In the beautifully decorated beer halls, you will experience authentic tradition: the locals’ traditional costumes, songs and dances. Here, a traditional beer and a traditional hearty snack are served.
And then, it is your turn: After the "Heimatabend" (local evening), you can show how much Bavarian temper you have during the open dance.
