    The day we visited St Gilgen there had been a wedding in the Rathaus (Town Hall).
    The reception was being held in the hotel opposite the Rathaus. I was able to take a picture of the bride, and also the silver wedding car. These are shown in the photo's together with this tip.

    Lederhosen is a German word for leather trousers and at one time they were commonly worn throughout Bavaria as well as parts of Austria and Switzerland. Today, they survive mostly as a folk costume, although many people own a pair and wear them on certain traditional occasions. Some lederhosen are worn just below the knee like knickers and are called kniebundlederhosen, while the short version are lederhosen.

    In St. Gilgen, there is a great shop (see my shopping tips) where you can buy lederhosen, but expect to pay a hefty price.

    Almdudler and Stiegl

    While in St. Gilgen I had my first taste of a uniquely Austrian drink called Almdudler. It's a light and refreshing, slightly citrusy and not too-sweet soft drink that also has some secret Alpine herbs. It's really good!!

    I also had a Stiegl Goldbräu beer. It's a typical lager with a nice amber color and a smooth taste. In fact, I think it's Austria's most popular beer (I saw it everywhere I went).
