Traditional Austrian Clothing in Vienna

'Tracht' is the word used in Austria for their traditional clothing and fashion. It is worn very often in the Austrian countryside, less in cities - only for special and formal occasions like weddings or receptions.

Women wear 'Dirndls', a close-fitting bodice combined with an apron in different colors; either it is sleeveless and worn with a cotton and lace blouse, or it has sleeves and a high neck. Men wear 'Lederhosen', knee-length trousers or short-pants made from leather, worn with rustic shoes and wool socks. Check out where to get them while in Vienna!
