Wine fest

The Wurstfest is also known as the Bad Durkheim Winefest. Something for everyone, food, wine, and rides.

There is so much good wine and food here! There is lots to do and you'll feel satisfied. There are some fun rides that are a lot of fun too. It can be fun for the whole family. I would suggest checking out the large, wooden building that has salt water streaming down the side. People come from all around... More

Think of this as a HUGE carnival - complete with food tents, wineries selling their best vintages, carousels and rides, and game booths. Rides range from 2-5€ each. I recommend getting on the Ferris wheel for an overview of the area, it's especially beautiful at sunset. Try some local food specialties like Saumagen in bread, and continue the day with... More

It's the wine version of Munich's Octoberfest. We have went two years now and will go every year that we are living in Germany. Each wine serving is about half a bottle of wine. The food is great and of course they have lots of Wurst(sausage). Highly recommend for drinks, food and/or fair rides.

Go there, (with your friends or on your own), get drunk on all the good wines or Weinschorle (wine mixed with sparkling water/lemonade), make new friends. It's that easy. But make sure you catch your last train home, because otherwise you have to take one of those really expenisve (German standard) caps. Lot's of good (local) music, good fun. It's... More

Music, dress, beer, beer and people! Rides to ride, great food to try and lots of very nice people! I think the whole area was present at this! Dancing in the tents on the tables, waitresses carried 12 full mugs at once!

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
