The tradition of the May in the region of the Bavarian Alps

every year, in towns and cities in Bavaria, is renewed competition to see who can raise up and decorate the "Maibaum" (maypole) higher (sometimes up to 30 m). The establishment of this "tree" changes from region to region. In some localities have the bark, other is removed, painted with the colors of Bavaria – white and blue – or decorated with colored ribbons, decorated with carved figures and a crown. The preparation of the Maibaum requires the help of the whole community, which works using, as usual, the only physical strength. Tradition has it that the tree, already shot down several weeks before, must be "stolen". And this happens often, despite the vigilance of the population. At this point would require negotiations for the return of the precious trunk, negotiations that always end with a large amount of beer and various libations to eat together.

In spring and summer are willingly in the Bavarian Biergarten

Old and young will find rest here during the hot days drinking beer outdoors, the shade of large ippocastagni. In this pleasant atmosphere you can spend the whole day, until evening. 

The history of the Bavarian Biergarten

The birth of the ancient tradition of the beer garden is due to the Catholic church and two saints. in 1539 the law regulating the production of beer, provided that this drink was allowed to be solely between the feast of S. Michele, il 29 September, es. Giorgio, iThe23 April. During the summer it was then prohibited the production, because of the danger of fire during the brewing process of beer. For this reason, the custom arose to make a great stock to own the summer. There remained, however, the problem with its cooling, just saw this summer was to be particularly refreshing drink. The solution was to build special cellars, very cool, usually located next to the brewery. To create a more cool and shady tall trees were planted, in particular ippocastagni, since they have very large leaves. That producers could sell their beer directly to the population, Finally, areas were set up with chairs and benches in the shade of these ippocastagni, where to sell and consume beer fresh. At Monaco there were several protests from the hosts. To avoid the danger of a rebellion the Bavarian King Ludwig I found a compromise: allowed the direct sales of producers, but forbade them to sell food. Those who wanted to consume their beer in the shade of ippocastagni should therefore bring your own snacks from home. Biergarten in this classic look has remained intact, in full respect of tradition.

His tavern was on a mountain pasture known as the "Kugler Alm and crossed by many cyclists. One day, the risk of running out of beer because of high demand, served his guests a drink, the "Radlermaß", half lemonade and half beer.
