Lively tradition in Walchensee
The words tradition and customs are filled with life in Walchensee. Enjoy the typical Bavarian way of life together with the locals - you can discover it everywhere:
Whether at festive processions, when setting up the May pole, at traditional parades, in religious celebrations or just when socialising. With the greeting "Grüß Gott" you meet the local inhabitants and establish contact quickly.
Bavarian tradition in a light hearted environment - we sincerely invite you to:
"Fronleichnam" - Corpus Christi - an appointment which you should remember: Every year the colourful procession marches from the chruch through the village whilst praying and singing an stopping on the way at a couple of altars.
with original plays you can enjoy the Bavarian language and have a hearty laugh. A lot of malicious-joy, a little self-awareness and finally usually a happy ending! A must for everybody who visits Walchensee and enjoys Bauerntheater.
