Dirndls, lederhosen, gingerbread, and steins
A gemütlich dress code
The world-famous Oktoberfest which takes over the city for a little over two weeks every September and October also comes with its own folkloric dress code, when locals break out their traditional Bavarian finery. If you're here and wish to get into the spirit with them, check out some of the many Trachten (traditional Bavarian dress shops) for dirndls (if you're a woman) and lederhosen (if you're a man). You'll also find a good number of souvenirs with Oktoberfest as theme. One edible example is a profusion of gingerbread hearts, large and small. Another item you should particularly strive to bring back is a commemorative beer stein. Because of course.
