  • May Pole

Setting up a may pole has its roots in the Germanic and Slovakian tradition. In Reit im Winkl and its neighboring towns you’ll find unique May Poles, which are put up every three to five years. Usually there is a May Pole fest every year not too far from Reit im Winkl. (Reit im Winkl’s was last put up in 2019.)
