Juppen-Werkstatt in Riefensberg

Visitors to the Juppenwerkstatt Riefensberg can find out how the highly complicated national costume worn by the ladies of the Bregenzerwald is made by coming along to the Juppenwerkstatt.

A very special technique is used to make up to 500 pleats in the black dress, for example. The building – former outbuildings of the Krone inn, adorned with a new glass façade, and extending over three storeys – is also worth visiting for its architectural value.
