The Gesellen are these funny looking hobos who dress up in medieval clothes and travel around hoping to do work such as carpentry or plumbing for random people that they meet. They also accept donations so that they can complete their travels.

"Dressed in a black slouch hat, a double-breasted vest with huge white buttons and black corduroy bell-bottom pants, those rather oddly-packaged folks you might see hitchhiking or asking for money in a café are actually Germany's most endangered species, the Gesellen -- or journeymen."
