Germany: Wurstmarkt – The World’s Biggest Wine Festival

YPgYwU-SVy-lEHezU8PBpAThe Wurstmarkt, which curiously translates to “sausage market,” is in fact the world’s largest wine festival. It was originally established as a market for farmers and winegrowers in the 15th century. Since then, it has grown from a local wine festival in the Palatinate into a vast public fair and is one of the highlights of the 85-km-long German Wine Route. Around 300 award-winning wines and sparkling wines form the core of the festival.

Nine days and nine nights of fairground rides, performances and catering outlets create a unique experience to be enjoyed by all the family. The large number of bands, playing music from a variety of genres, are sure to put visitors in a good mood!

Dates: September 9-13, 2016 and 16-19, 2016

Location: Wurstmarktplatz, 67098 Bad Dürkheim
