Largest wine festival

February 22, 2008

Bad Dürkheim is the second-largest wine-growing district in Germany. It’s no surprise, then, that it is also home to the world’s largest wine festival. Some 600,000 visitors attend each year. The world’s largest wine barrel can also be found in Bad Dürkheim. It has never been filled with wine, however, because there’s a 650-seat restaurant inside. When visitors have had enough to eat and drink, they can head up the hill to explore Harden Castle, which was built in the early13th century.

On the last Sunday in August, the German Wine Route holds a discovery day when the whole route is closed to motorised traffic, leaving walkers and cyclists free to enjoy the route at leisure.
