Folk costumes of Transylvanian Germans

Siebenburgen(7 Cities, The Land of The Seven Burgs, Septem Castra) is the German name for Transylvania or Ardeal. The first Saxon settlers (Germans from Saxonia) arrived in Transylvania between 1141-1161. Although the colonists came mostly from the western Holy Roman Empire and generally spoke Franconian dialects, they were collectively known as Saxons

Theoretically, in Romania there are 12 groups of German settlers:
Transylvanian Saxons (saş), colonized between 1141-1161
Banat Swabians (şvabi), colonized in Banat region (SW) after 1700
Satu Mare Swabians, colonized after 1700 in NW Transylvania
Germans from Bessarabia and Bukovina (NE) colonized during both belonged to the Austrian Empire (18th century)
Germans in Dobruja (moved here by the communist regime in the '50) (SE)
Landlers from Austria, colonized between 1734-1777 in Sibiu (center)
Germans from Durlach (now part of the city of Karlsruhe, Germany)
Germans from Bohemia (colonized in the South Banat)
