Traditional Austrian Clothing in Museum Quarter Area

'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!
