The first two weekends and weekdays inbetween you can have the time of your life with great wines, food and a happy go lucky canival atmosphere. The 36 original vinters of Bad Dürkheim have small open tents next to each other where people "taste" the wines in half liter "Dubbe" glasses. You pay a deposit the first time and then... More

Awesome time. Lots to do. The North American mind is not use to that type of festival, so be prepared to have a good time.

We absolutely loved this wine festival. Great wine and food (obviously) but the atmosphere is the best part. The long tables, the laughing crowds, the musicians going up and down the aisles playing traditional music - it was wonderful. My husband and I sampled quite a few of the wines (I had schorle each time so I could make it... More

This "wine and sausage festival" was recommended to me by my cousin who was based in Germany several years ago as a far better place to visit than the Munich beer festival. He was right. It's a generally undiscovered gem. Hidden away in the German countryside Bad Durkheim itself isn't the most beautiful of towns but this festival held every... More

Great Festival! I've went the last two years....great time. If you have never been, think of an American style fair mixed with lots of wine/beer tents and bands. If you plan on spending time in one of the tents, make reservations for a table and a nearby hotel, well worth it.

not so much to do with sausages as with litres of fine German white wine. ask for a very small glass if you want to sample more than a couple of types - a 'small' glass is a half litre. Real German atmosphere. Great fun.

Fabulous time drinking .5L glasses of wine with friends! Be sure to mix it up with a schorle (wine mixed with carbonated water) here and there!

Fantastic location, a lot of fun, many rides, great wine selection - and they serve it in a 1/2 liter glass so you just can't lose.

Wine, wine and more wine!! If you bring children then come early and be ready to eat!! There is so much to do such as using all the attractions and drink all the possible wine you can handle! Ensure to wear comfortable shoes and cash.

I live in Bad Durkheim and have been to the festival every year from 2004. In 2012, the Bad Durkeheim Wurstmarkt, also known as the Bad Durkheim wine fest is September 7 - 11th and 14-17 September. The dates are odd, because they are not open on some weekdays. Come early in the day if you have a family. Later... More
