Fury over breast-revealing Oktoberfest costumes: Bavarian prince says ‘excessively low-cut, plastic folk outfits from China’ that show women’s cleavage are an insult and ‘cultural appropriation’

Date:

Fake national costumes that allow festival-goers to flaunt their bodies are degrading the cultural value of Oktoberfest, a Bavarian prince has claimed.

Bavarian Prince Luitpold Rupprecht Heinrich, 72, whose great-grandfather was the last king of Bavaria, said the cheap costumes turned the historic festival into a “carnival.”

“When I see plastic Chinese traditional costumes, pseudo-costumes with tight dirndls, everything becomes a carnival,” Heinrich told a local radio station.

‘Today we all talk about cultural appropriation. This is happening to us Bavarians!’

And he added: “If it’s all just about putting on a costume to get drunk… A lot of culture and tradition is lost in the process.

Gentlemen usually wear leather pants, while ladies wear ‘dirndls’, a traditional dress consisting of a low-cut bodice, a blouse and a high-waisted skirt.

Traditionalists have argued that in recent years, Oktoberfest, which has been held in Munich for 213 years, has become less of a celebration of Bavarian culture and more of an opportunity for people to drink copious amounts of beer and view low-cut, elegant and cheap clothes. dress.

But this year’s festival isn’t just facing a reckoning over dresses. Traditionalists are worried that Oktoberfest will become a ‘Woke Weisn’ – a play on the festival’s local name – after a major tent decided to serve all-organic chickens that cost 50% more than normal.

An Oktoberfest regular, Andrea Koerner, told the Wall Street Journal that although she normally orders a chicken, she blanched when she saw that the price of an organic half chicken was €20.50 (£17.70).

“We don’t know the taste because it costs too much to taste,” says Koerner, 56.

But a younger guest told the newspaper that he didn’t mind this price increase.

Jake Williams, 32, said: “I don’t care at all.” I guess it would be nice if people cared about chickens.’

The significant increase in food prices comes as beer served in almost all tents during the festival rose by 6% to an average of €14.50, according to a city survey.

This comes on top of the sharp rise in food prices after Russia invaded Ukraine last February.

The wedding celebration, which took place almost exactly 213 years ago, saw Bavarians celebrate with a huge horse race.

The people of the region liked the race so much that they decided to do another one every year after that, and the festival evolved to include rides and fairground rides in subsequent years.
