Photographer's Note

This nice lady is an actress, she just had a break while making a film about Bavaria and Landshut. She wears a traditional Bavarian folk costume, similar costumes can be seen during the beer festival in Munich (Oktoberfest).

In Landshut this tradition is still alive, every four years the festival Landshuter Hochzeit (Landshut Wedding) takes place in the city. It is one of the largest historical pageants in Europe, it commemorates the wedding between Hedwig, the Polish King's (Casimir IV Jagiellon) daughter, and George, the son of the Duke of Bavaria at Landshut (1475). In the procession you can see about 2000 participants from all over the world in medieval costumes.
