Favorite thing: "Schäffler" is the professional, making wooden vats and similar things.
Of course a region like Bavaria needed a lot of them for their beer-poduction, that way Schäffler became rich and wealthy.
Today you may still see them performing their well-known "Schäffler-tanz" :
Normally it is a group of several people in their traditional costumes dancing with a garland, like to be seen on my picture.
Fondest memory: Also on the rathaus / townhall in Munich you will see some "Schäffler" performing their dances with the Glockenspiel / chimes.
Schäfflerstrasse in Munich - where I took this pic - is halfway from Marienplatz to Odeonsplatz
