Guys, do you want to know for sure, which local girls are up for a flirt at the Oktoberfest? There’s one indication only Germans and Austrians know about. Just look at their Dirndl dress (female national costume of Germany and Austria): the knot on the apron shows the marital status of a woman. The knowledge will help you to avoid a fight with an enraged husband.
Short breeches with suspenders made from leather and decorated with embroidery may look a little bit odd on a grown-up man. But go try to tell it to Germans or Austrians! It’s their traditional garment which is being used for centuries. Even today, you’ll see dozens of males wearing lederhosen – that’s how such trousers are called – on the streets of Austria and Germany, particularly Bavaria.
Bavaria (or the Free State of Bavaria) is the biggest state of Germany. And it is a unique territory which differs from other parts of Germany. People in Bavaria continue to keep their traditions (which are rather long-standing) even today, in the 21st century. Bavarian traditional costume is called "Tracht": "dirndl dresses" for women and "lederhosen" for men. And local people wear them with great proud.
