Dürkheimer Wurstmarkt

Wine in Bad Dürkheim

The Dürkheimer Wurstmarkt ('sausage market', named for the area where it's held, which once hosted the town's eponymous Wurst market) bills itself as the world's largest wine festival, with amusement rides, food tents, live music and fireworks. Much of the action takes place around the enormous Dürkheimer Riesenfass wine barrel. It's held on the second and third weekends in September.
