About Schnucki: Australia's Only Authentic Dirndl & Lederhosen Store

Schnucki connects lovers of German culture with exclusive Bavarian fashion. From leather Lederhosen to that perfect little Bavarian Dirndl dress, look no further to find your traditional German costume. Whether you’re going to a party or cultural event, or you’re joining the crowds for a fun weekend at Oktoberfest Brisbane, Schnucki has a German outfit for every occasion.

Who is Behind Schnucki

German-Australians Regina and her daughter Kim are the faces behind Schnucki. After seeing visitors having so much fun attending Oktoberfest Brisbane wearing authentic Lederhosen and Dirndl dresses, and listening to their difficulties sourcing quality Oktoberfest costumes, they decided to inject their passion for their home culture into creating the ultimate German clothing brand.

Together, they combined their love of German culture, their eye for fashion and their desire to create quality products so people had an alternative to panic buying inferior German costumes online before an event.

Schnucki was Born!

The first year they created an exclusive Schnucki line of around 20 Dirndl dresses and scoured Europe to source the best designer brands of Dirndls and Lederhosen.

Opening to the excited crowds of Oktoberfest Brisbane in 2013, the range quickly sold out in its first weekend! Regina and Kim had to place an express order to Germany to get more stock for the second weekend so that customers didn’t miss out.

Over the last few years, the Schnucki range has exploded, with over 65 styles of Dirndls and over 20 types of Lederhosen now available, not to mention the array of accessories to finish off your authentic German outfit so you can get the details just right. 

Schnucki is now Oktoberfest Brisbane’s official clothing partner and we are proud to see so many well-dressed Schnucki fans attend the Festival every year.

If you’re looking for traditional German clothing that is fun, high quality, stylish and comfortable for your next cultural occasion or just to wear for leisure, Schnucki is the site for you.

einfach eine super Idee. Meine Tochter wollte mal Lederhosen fuer ihren Sohn und ich musste die in Deutschland kaufen. Sie wollte auch im Dirndl heiraten und ich hatte wenigstens noch meins das ich mitgebracht hatte vor ewig langer zeit und es ihr sogar passte. Aber jetzt ist es viel einfacher wenn man hier was bestellen kann. Werde es sicher auch weitersagen.
