Austrian traditional dress for girls.

Hi,

Can someone suggest shops where can we purchase Austrian traditional dress ( something like the girls wear in Sound of music ) for my girls (14,11) for reasonable price?

Or please any place where my girls can dress up and take a picture?( Like how they offer the traditional Swiss dress up in Mt,Titlis?)

1. Re: Austrian traditional dress for girls.

Depends where you are visiting.

The dresses are called Dirndls.

My wife has loads (she's Bavarian so also traditional dress)

When purchased they normally come with an apron. You have to buy the blouse separately.

Prices can be from €100 to €1000s.

The term for this type of clothing along with mens clothing (lederhosen etc) is called Tracht.

Look for Trachtenladen or Trachtenmode?

You can also find them in good large department stores.

Plenty of places in Salzburg, Tirol and Bavaria (Munich)

Different lengths. Mini, Midi and long.

Examples

Zillertaler Trachtenwelt are a generally well known company for large production. They have a shop in Salzburg

http://www.trachtenwelt.com/shop/

http://www.trachtenwelt.com/shop/Damen/

They have ashop in Judengasse 4, Salzburg

Midi (knee length) probably the most popular whether 14 or 40

NOTE: There is another style called "Landhausmode" - this is NOT what you are looking for.

In Vienna look to these places - fine quality and good selection

Lanz

www.lanztrachten.at

a nice shop in city center Karntnerstrasse

- website offers some info and photos to assist you

LodenPlankl

just across from the Hofburg Palace in Vienna

www.loden-plankl.at

Lanz also with a shop in Salzburg - Getreidgasse - the pedestrian zone and the main shopping street of Salzburg.

Staffs in these shops are usually helpful and most speak English

For photos - Mirabel Gardens provide ideal possibilities including the Fortress in the distance.

Most of the main squares too are good. - some with horse carriages.

In Vienna- Heldenplatz by the Hofburg Palace.

The Volksgarten , usually with flower gardens in bloom good too.

Hi giftzwerg and vertical,

Special thanks from my daughters .

The collections in those websites are just lovely.Will check their stores in Salzburg and hope to buy the best Midi Dirndls for my girls.

And @vertical, actually i asked if there are any places to take photos ( actually they'd provide the traditional dresses at an extra cost ..like rental , to dress up and take pictures). This oppurtunity we missed in Mt.Titlis as we were in a hurry to catch the Rotair . Still your tips for best places to take pictures are more welcome and sure will try at those places when we are on sight seeing.

Thanks a lot.

Yes,you are absolutely correct. This is what we missed last year. Is there any place/studio in Salzburg or Vienna like this, where we can take take pictures?

Adding to Verical's excellent suggestions as it seems you will be visiting Salzburg: Lanz is a great, very famous, upscale and quite expensive place from Salzburg. Their main store in Salzburg with a good choice for adults is just across the Staatsbrücke bridge, behind the famous Café Bazar. The shop in Getreidegasse is for children, so probably the right place to head with your girls.
