First the burqa, then the burkini, now Germany adopts the BURKIRNDL: Traditional low-cut Bavarian outfit is adapted for Muslims
- The traditional Bavarian dress – called a dirndl – has a plunging bustline
- Renate Hoffmann, 63, adapted it and added a Muslim-style head covering
First there was the burqa, then the burkini and now comes – the burkirndl.
A woman in Germany has modified her traditional Bavarian dress – called a dirndl – after converting to Islam.
Renate Hoffmann, 63 from the small village of Fensterbach was once like her neighbours: God-fearing, Christian worshipping, singing in the local choir, enjoying a beer at the local festivals and sporting the dresses designed to showcase the female figure.

Having shed her beliefs, however, she was not prepared to give up on the dirndl.
The low bustline was raised and she added a headscarf in keeping with Muslim tradition.
