Live and let live.
If you ask a guest from abroad what his or her idea of the “typical Bavarian” is, the answer will probably focus on lederhosen and dirndl dresses, beer and roast pork. But there is a lot more to being “typically Bavarian”.
More than 13 million people live in the Free State of Bavaria. People from Altbayern, Franconians, Swabians and Sudeten Germans have made Bavaria the charming home state that it is, as well as turning it into a location with the best of opportunities. It is a wonderful place to live and work. That is why an increasing number of people are coming to Bavaria: since 1987, the population of the Free State has grown by a net 2.1 million inhabitants.
Bavaria is changing, but that special white-and-blue attitude towards life will remain: live and let live! This love of diversity forms the core of the proverbial liberalitas bavariae.
