Recognized for their green color and distinctive tapered crown, the Tyrolean hat, also known as the Alpine hat or Bavarian hat, comes from a historical region known as Tyrol in the Alps. Once a symbol of tourism, the Tyrolean hat has taken on many different forms and is often personalized with different feathers and pins for decorative purposes.
You may give it a different name, but the German hat you're looking for is definitely a "Tyrolean" hat. This association comes from the history of Tyrol itself, which was a part of the Alps in what has now become four different countries - one being Germany. Tomato, tomato: you can say it either way, but it's still a great German gift for men who have roots in Deutschland. Pair it with a masculine pin and your gift will be a standout!
Another name for Tyrolean hats, "Alpine" refers to the Alps where these hats originated from. Every time a man or woman wears these hats, they're carrying the entire history of the most extensive mountain range in Europe. Crossing both German and Austria, the Alps have been a staple of German geography, making the name "Alpine" more than suitable for this headwear. Order your Alpine hat as a gift today! And an alpine hat pin to match!
Tyrolean hats are called by a number of different names so it's no surprise the term "Bavarian hat" would be used to label this green headwear. Bavaria itself is a federal state in Germany, boasting the country's third largest city. If a member of your family was born in Munich, it's easy to see why you'd know Tyrolean hats as Bavarian hats instead! Either way, no one's wrong and everyone's happy when they get German hats as gifts.
Lying on Germany's southern border, Austria's culture has soaked up some of their neighbor's - and no one's complaining!
