Goal of the Activity

Showing the local culture to the exchange students with the help of an interactive workshop.


Join us for a one-of-a-kind interactive event where we'll teach you all about the unique Bavarian culture.  We'll teach you how to drink beer Bavarian-style and invite you to taste a delicious Breze with Obazda, traditionally part of the "Brotzeit", a Bavarian savory snack.

Also, get ready for our crash course in Bavarian slang and expressions, so you'll be able to talk like a local in no time. Next up, we'll dive into the world of Tracht (traditional Bavarian clothing) and show you how to dress like a true Bavarian.

After the event, you can join us at a bar where you’ll have the chance to draw some beers yourself.
So grab your Lederhosen and Dirndl and come join us for a night of Bavarian fun!

Our volunteers made a presentation, where they show some of the most important aspects of culture in Bavaria and Munich. The main points were:

- Beer in Munich and Bavaria

- Bavarian expressions

- Schuhplattln (traditional bavarian dance)

- Bavarian Trachten (traditional clothing) and traditions around it

- Bavarian traditions like volksfest, maibaum, etc

The presentation is refreshed with some activities, like matching bavarian expression with their translation in an interactive game or trying to dance the traditional dance yourself.

All is finished with a traditional snack and a chill evening in the bar (optional programme), where participants could practice tapping their own beer and dive deeper into bavarian culture by asking our volunteers.
