Joining in with tradition

Tradition and living customs

Culture & customs

Come join us, because on the numerous festival days and holidays all are on the go! Of course traditionally with Bavarian music and in the typical Tracht (traditional costume). This is how in Mittenwald, Krün and Wallgau customs are lived and maintained. And if there is still more room for culture in your leisure planning, then let yourself be enchanted by the Lüftlmalerei (fresco painting) and the art of violin making.

  • Customs from erecting the maypole to the Almabtrieb, the ceremonial driving of the cattle down from the mountain pastures into the valley in autumn.
  • Unique events distributed over the whole year
  • Top-class music from folk music to classical music
  • Colourfully painted houses, magnificently designed churches and idyllic chapels
