Customs & Tradition

are tops in Bavaria and Erding 

Moosgeistertreiben Erding

The Bavarian, who is generally thought of as being relaxed, can sometimes be experienced as being obstinate but genial, someone who is not easily fazed. This way of life can be found alive in the large number of organisations dedicated to the traditional regional style of dressing, shooting or music.
The cultivation of traditions and the loving care of origins can be seen in such events as the Wartenberger “Bettelhochzeit”, the Beggars’ Wedding, which takes place every year on Shrove Tuesday, or the “Hemadlenzenumzug”, the Long-shirt Larries procession, in Dorfen on Nonsensical Thursday or the Erding driving out of the moor spirits, also on Shrove Tuesday. But also the large number of farmers’ markets and street markets mirror our living traditions and customs.
The many village, folk and autumn fairs in the communities in the region are very popular. The autumn fair in Erding in fact is the third largest of its kind in Bavaria.

Experience the Bavarian way of life with its warmth, friendliness and lust for life at one of the diverse events in the region. You can find the dates here in the events calendar.
