Waldburg, a municipality with a current population of around 3000, once the seat of the Truchsessen von Waldburg family, lies a good 800 m above sea level, making it the highest town in Upper Swabia. It is located between Ravensburg and Wangen in the Allgäu and is just 35 km north of Lake Constance. Surrounded by beautiful pine forests, the village is home to the Waldburg traditional costume and Schuhplattler group. The Waldburg traditional costume association was first founded in 1920, was re-established in 1956 and has been a member of the Lake Constance Heritage and Costume Association since 1961. Then as now, the association felt drawn to the Allgäu and so it is not surprising that the group wears the Allgäu mountain costume.
