What is Bavarian culture

Bavarian culture

Bavaria unites modernity and tradition like hardly any other European region: pictures of dirndls and lederhosen are world-famous, but Bavaria has also earned an international reputation through companies such as Siemens, BMW and Adidas.

"Tradition and progress are the maxims in the Free State. Even in a Europe that is growing together, Bavaria will retain its individuality and self-confidence" (former Prime Minister Günther Beckstein).
The Wies'n is rightly regarded as the largest and most visited folk festival in the world. It attracts over 6 million visitors from all over the world every year and, as a brand, stands for typical Bavarian cosiness.

"Bavaria is a cultural state"

So it is written in the constitution: The Bavarian state government takes this mandate very seriously through intensive funding. Bavaria offers orchestras, theaters, operas, museums and festivals with a worldwide reputation.
Countless picturesque villages, medieval towns, royal palaces and of course Munich, the state capital and international metropolis, belong to Bavaria. In addition, the cultural diversity is enriched by baroque churches, medieval monasteries and castles, which contribute to Bavaria's unique identity.
Particularly noteworthy are Neuschwanstein Castle, built by Ludwig II, the Wieskirche, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as the Limes (Roman border fortifications) and the historic cities of Würzburg, Bamberg and Regensburg.
Bavaria has a total of over 100,000 architectural monuments, 1,200 museums and collections and 40 first-class theaters and opera houses.
