Having attended Oktoberfest and the Bad Durkheim Festival, I was much more enamored with Bad Durkheim. This is mostly due to the fact that I am not a beer drinker, but love wine. Half of the fun is searching the wine booths for your favorite glass design (you get to keep the large glass). I found the atmosphere less obnoxious... More

This is a great wine and food festival with lovely and happy atmosphere. The musicians going up and down the aisles playing traditional German music, long tables, laughing and singing crowds. They serve wine in glasses of 0.5 and 0.25 liter. It was great fun.

Im not knocking the wine fest, but it wasnt what I expected. Its more for families with small kids and people who like fried carni food, carni rides operated by sketchy operators, and very few wine venders. What I expected was more wine venders and tastings and less of the carni environment

While in Germany to visit my daughter, son-in-law and grandson, I read that the Bad Durkheim Wine & Wurst Fest was taking place during my visit. The last time I went to this Fest was in 1987 when I was living in Germany. The round-trip train ride to get from Wiesbaden to Bad Durkheim is a whole story and review... More

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.
