The Wurstmarkt is the biggest wine festival in the entire world and draws in crowds of over 500,000 people every year. Wurst means sausage in Germany and this festival is where you lose your diet and gain an educated wine, cheese and meat palate. There are 36 wineries to celebrate in, and the must-haves and must-buys include a good Gewurztraminer, Pinot and a Riesling. This festival takes place in Bad Durkheim. And its locals say there are only two seasons in this town – the one before the Wurstmarkt and the one after.
