bayerische Sprüche mit Herzblut

Bavarian sayings with heart and soul

Funny, humorous, rough or heartfelt - but really always honest and how we've grown our beaks.

We Bavarians simply love our dialect! And for all those who are not very familiar with Bavarian, I have put together the BEST OF folk festival sayings. So you, as a “non-Bavarian”, are well prepared for the next festival trip in your new dirndl. So, let's get started!

The evening begins...

Bavarian dirndls, lederhosen, pretzels and a marquee decorated in blue and white. Visiting a folk festival is great fun! To ensure that your folk festival evening doesn't go to waste, you need a few Bavarian basics.

  • "Griasde!" – Hello or greetings..
  • "How's it going?" - How are you doing?
  • "Enjoy your meal!" - Bon appetit
  • "How are you?" - What's your name?
  • “What’s sogsd?” - I'm sorry, what ?
  • “Fesch's Dirndl host o” – “You are wearing a beautiful dirndl”
  • "No a measure, bittschee" - order a beer / another measure of beer please.
  • "Oans, two, g'suffa!" – Probably the most important toast at a folk festival.
  • “Is that where you lose your busn mocha or is that of the dirndl?”

The evening isn't going as you would have liked?
