This is the world‘s largest beer keg or wine barrel and it‘s several hundred years old. You can even take stairs to the top of it and walk around on a platform built atop it. It’s located in a basement in Heidelberg Castle.

It’s worth seeing if you’re already at Heidelberg Castle but not worth a separate trip unless you’re really into humongous ancient beer kegs.

This giant massive wine barrel which holds close to 58 gallons of wine is impressive. I would say it is the largest wine barrel that I have ever seen.

It's almost hard to believe how the German people came to love their wine so much that they built grand barrels for storage. All this time I though the Germans only loved beer, now I know differently!

Note: this is part of the Castle admission and is not a stand alone attraction. Yes this is interesting and there is a good viewing platform but is still just a very large wine barrel. Some of the stairs on the viewing platform could be hard to handle if you have challenges walking or with small children.

If you are visiting the castle make sure you stop by and check out the turn. We almost made the mistake of thinking the first barrel was the turn after you see that one walk around the corner and down the steps it is impressive

It is really funny that as soon as you enter a room, you see an enormous barrel and a line of people waiting to take pictures in front of it, so you think that is the main attraction. As soon as you walk a bit further, you see an even bigger barrel (the size of a small apartment!) and you realize that you have waited to get your picture taken in front of the wrong barrel!!!

Although this was fun to see, I wouldn't buy a castle ticket based on this alone. It would have been nice to have more information about the wine barrel available. Was it ever actually used? Did it take longer for the wine to ferment?

This gigantic famous historic wine barrel lies in an outbuilding of Heidelberg Castle. A short tour can be taken up the stairs on one side, over the small dance floor on top, down the stairs at the other side to the base of the barrel. A ticket of the "Bergbahn" is also good for entrance to the castle grounds and the building where the barrel is.
